2019 Cotswold Clouds Trial Entry Pack

“On Sunday 3rd February 2019 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. Having seemingly managed to reduce the annual queue for Mustard, we are introducing a slight change of format to see if we can manage the same for Axe. Also introducing a Clubmans Class for pre 1960 front engine cars.

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 Carl Talbot, Mark Hobbs, Nigel Scotford, 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 Nigel Scotford, so please give him a ring on 01453 884691 or 01453 873787 if you are able to help in any way.

We look forward to seeing you on the hills.”

Start Venue : Fromebridge Mill, Fromebridge Lane, Gloucester, GL2 7PD

2019 Exmoor Trial Entry Pack

“Welcome to the 2019 Exmoor Trial, which is a round of the 2019 ACTC Car and Motorcycle Classic Trial Championships, ASWMC Classic Reliability Trial Championship. There is a new organising team this year, as many of you will know, John Barthram and Rodney Murch have stepped back from their organising roles which they have carried out for 32 years. Therefore this year sees some big changes to the route. As of last year we have moved away from the long haul from Exmoor back to Barnstaple to collect your tow vehicle. We will be finishing at the Muddiford Inn again which was appreciated by many last year. The trip across the high ground of Exmoor will not be included this year as this added many miles to the route for just a few sections.

This year’s route is approximately 70 miles on OS Map 180 in the very north of Devon with a real mixture of sections which are non-car/motorcycle breaking including High Bray which can be quite a challenge at this time of year, we are also pleased to include Hurscott, another favourite which was totally washed out a week before last year’s event after a lot of repair work by NDMC members. Fortunately a local farmer took it onto himself to repair the lane for which we are very grateful. The route will include stops for fuel near the start and during the route. The event will have a Motorsport UK dual permit, Clubmans & National B. Those who enter the Clubmans event do not require a Motorsport UK Competition Licence, if you want to contend the Championships then you will have to enter the National B event. Motorcyclists who do not have an ACU Trial Affiliation can purchase a One Event Trial Registration, ideal for beginners to have ago. Breakfast will be available for purchase at the McDonalds Restaurant, further refreshment and meals will be available at The Muddiford Inn finish venue. 

For those who do not wish to travel on the morning of the trial can find accommodation at either the Cedars Inn (near start venue), tel: 01271 371784, or Travelodge Barnstaple Roundswell Services, (even nearer the start venue) tel: 0870 191 1845.

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.”

Start Venue : McDonalds, Roundswell Retail Park, John Penrose Rd, Barnstaple EX31 3RY

“WELCOME TO THE CLEE HILLS TRIAL IN SOUTH SHROPSHIRE

After the 2018 layoff, 2019 sees our return to the fray. Original (1980) organiser Simon Woodall continues in the role of Clerk of the Course, now with both car and bike hats on.

We have a new start this year, slightly further south than before and hopefully more convenient. Being situated at “The Squirrel” pub, next door to the Ludlow Travelodge and on the same site as the Co-op Petrol Station.

We continue with our unique twin loop system that sees us all done in the mid-winter daylight. This time there is more common use of sections, meaning extra sporting enjoyment for the marshals and a consistent flow of competitors.

There will be a few more challenges for the expert drivers and riders, but also new incentives to welcome the trialling novice to our wonderful motorsport. So for those of you who know of a prospective trialler, perhaps we can entice them out onto a road based Classic Trial. About 80 miles around Wenlock Edge and the delightful Long Mynd, some old lanes and some woodland, and relatively non-damaging in our class 0 option.

For cars, the event will also run as a dual permit, with Clubmans accommodating those without a competition licence, for example MCC entrants. VSCC entrants continue to be especially welcome, giving delight to other drivers in their ‘moderns’, the marshals and spectators alike. We are a part of both ACTC and ASWMC championships.

For bikes, we are running on an ACU permit, and welcome any Midland Centre riders, all MCC Members, and any ACTC Club members who care to foray out into Shropshire. Trials tyres only please.”

Start Venue : The Squirrel, Foldgate Lane, Ludlow, SY8 1LP

Camel Classic Trial 2018 Regs Available

Camel Vale Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2018 Camel Classic Trial, to be held on Sunday 2nd December.

2018 Camel Classic Trial Entry Pack

“The Camel Classic Road Trial first ran in 1983 (called the Octo for the first two years) thanks to two new trialers Hans Viertel and Pete Allen. The event flourished every year and soon became a round of the Chester Motor Club Trials Championship and later ACTC and ASWMC Championship rounds. The original organising team of Hans and Pete were still running the event 31 years later in 2014.

Sadly Hans suddenly passed away in 2015 which was a huge loss to Camel Vale Motor Club and the trialling community. Hans was described by many as a true gentlemen and he is greatly missed by all. He really was totally immersed in trials; be it as a competitor, marshall or organising the Camel Classic in December every year. We hope his memory can live on in this event for many years to come.

Again this year the Camel Classic will be run as a dual permit event so that non-championship competitors may enter under the Clubmans permit and will not be required to produce a Competition Licence.

For the first time ever in 2015 we invited motocycle solo’s and outfits to enter the trial. This was a success and all the riders enjoyed the event so we will continue this for future years.

Hope you enjoy the event!

Start Venue : The Borough Arms, Dunmere, Bodmin, PL31 2RD

2018 Kyrle Trial Entry Pack

“Ross & District Motor Sports Club have pleasure in welcoming you to the 41st running of The Kyrle Trial. Yes, 41 years ago the first Kyrle Trial was organised in April 1977. A single venue event by Richard Andrews up on May Hill and it was won by Eric Wall in his Canhi. I am pleased to say that some of those original organisers are still involved today.

Last year we successfully introduced a Clubman’s trial alongside the main trial. You DO NOT require a Competition Licence for the Clubman’s trial. We also include mandatory Road Traffic Act insurance, which this year costs £8.40 per car and is included in the entry fee.

We are staying with our autumn date to avoid the Goshawks. We will be starting early to make the most of the daylight. Don’t forget, the clocks change the night before the trial. The Clerk of the Course team is the same as last year, Nigel Green and Paul Bartleman. They have been out and about during the summer taking a look at old and new sections and have found some new ones and some that have not been used for many years. Weather wise prepare for anything. Our hills are suitable for all classes and driver skills. We will use some old favourite sections together with the new or resurrected hills, with our October date we have a good portfolio of hills to choose from.

A new start venue this year, unfortunately the café we have used for many years will be closed for refurbishment. The finish of the trial remains at our Club House in Ross-on-Wye where tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available and the bar will be open to help quench honest thirst! Please note the date, Sunday 28th October and come along to marshal if you cannot enter. will be pleased to hear from you at any time on. We look forward to seeing you for another good day’s trialing with around 12 competitive hills and two observed tests. Remember, our hills are not rough, but they are tough and steep.

Nigel Green, Paul Bartleman, Stuart Harrold, John Tatlow, Neil Forrest, Alan & Hilary Baker, Ollie Jenkins and the Organising Team.”
