Photo - Riley 9 Tourer driven by Sean Bramhall on Sandale on the 2018 Northern Trial. Myke Pocock, Clerk of Course, recalls one of the most funny things was when Nicola Butcher hit that deep rut (photo above) in her Beetle with two kids in the back in their Recaro kids seats. The front of the car was a good two feet off the deck, a good few buckets of good quality Cumbria clart stuck to the front end but both kids remained asleep. What a hoot!

Launceston Trial - Sunday 9th February 2020
Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club are celebrating their 100th year! The trial will again run in its popular format as a single venue trial held in Eastcott & Lew Woods. As always we hope to introduce some new sections and of course sections from the Tamar Trial will be included.
Membership to Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club for the year will as usual be offered anyone who enters the trial. Therefore competitors from any club, or indeed if you have yet to renew your club membership, all are very much welcome to enter the trial as you will automatically become a member of the organising club upon entry. We hope you can join us on Sunday 9th February and look forward to providing you with a good day’s sport.
Exmoor Trial - Sunday 16th February 2020
Chris Barham has taken over as Clerk of the Course with many of the ‘old’ guard in evidence as support. You will note the event is 3 weeks later than norm, this has moved us away from being ‘piggy in the middle’ of two other championship events, this hopefully not only helps the entry numbers but also the availability of marshals.
On the subject of marshals, the trial cannot run unless there are sufficient Marshals. If you or any of your friends want a day out involved in motorsport (or part of a day) why not come and help, please contact the Chief Marshal as soon as possible: Becey Macey on 07708 764622.
This year’s route is approximately 70 miles on OS Map 180 in North Devon with a real mixture of sections which are non-car/motorcycle breaking including the popular High Bray which can be quite a challenge.
The start and finish will be at McDonalds Restaurant, Roundswell, Barnstaple. Download Regs here - for any other info contact Chris: Mob 07749 970529 or Howard Dark Tel: 01884 821017.
Northern Trial - Saturday 22nd February 2020
The 2020 Northern Classic Trial has a compact route of 57 road and 20 forestry miles around the Northern Lake District visiting many of the sections from previous years including the infamous Sandale, Ladyside and Big Cockup. We will use variable tyre pressures, diversions and a few restarts to make the trial more enjoyable for all competitors.
The start venue is at the Hope’s Auction Mart in Wigton, they are geared up for farmers and we fit in well. Very good hot food and drinks will be available before the start and after the finish. Download Regs, or enter online here.
