Exmoor Trial 2020 Postponed

An update from North Devon Motor Club regarding the Exmoor Trial.

“Good Morning all, regrettably we have come to a sad but wise decision to postpone this Sundays Exmoor Trial. With the rain forecast between now and then as well as a yellow weather warning for the weekend itself we have to bear in mind everyone’s safety. During yesterday’s route marking we discovered many areas were only just negotiable in a 4×4! We also have to bear in mind the kind landowners who give us permissions to use their grounds, we really wouldn’t want to leave a mess behind, especially the new areas we obtained for this event. Please share with anyone who may not have access to social media to avoid any wasted journeys. Hopefully we can find a future date for the event.

Many thanks,

Chris, John, Mick, Becey, Howard and North Devon Motor Club.”

This year Chris Barham has designed the Exmoor route for the first time so expect to see something different. The route is approximately 75 miles on OS Map 180 in the Barnstaple area of north Devon with a real mixture of sections which are non-car/motorcycle breaking including the now well known High Bray which can be quite a challenge at this time of year.

The route will include stops for fuel near the start and during the route. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the McDonalds Restaurant which is the start and finish venue.

We hope you will enter this event and find the day both interesting and challenging, we are working hard to make it as competitive as possible.

“On Sunday 2nd February 2020 we welcome you to join us, as we have done since 1963, for our annual Cotswold Clouds Classic Trial. Over the years many competitors and spectators have enjoyed the Cotswold Hills, and this year will hopefully be no exception. Some sections have been eased to suit all classes but still present a challenge, and of course, we still have the old favourites to be climbed including Crooked Mustard, Nailsworth Ladder and Wicked Juniper. Also we are keeping the option for non-championship registered pre 1960 front engine cars in
Class 2.

The Clouds, winner of the ACTC Trial of the Year award in 2016, remains a successful and popular trial attracting a full entry for many years. The organising team of Nigel Moss, Gill Hayward, Ben Giles and Suzanne Burns look forward to receiving your entries, so please complete and return the enclosed entry form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We will keep you updated with entries via our website and the Clubs Facebook page.

The excellent facilities at Fromebridge Mill will again be the start venue, where signing on and scrutineering will also take place as per previous years. Tea, coffee and hot food will be available as usual. No trailers should be taken to the start but they can be left at SKF as previously.

The trial will finish at the Minchinhampton Common Golf Club where good food and drinks will be available at very reasonable prices, so please support them.

If you’re not planning to compete this year, please consider offering your services as a Marshal. These offers are so very much appreciated and we literally couldn’t do it without you. Our Chief Marshal is Gill Hayward, so please give her a call on 01453 884691 or 01453 873787 if you are able to help in any way.

We look forward to seeing you on the hills.
