“Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club and MG Car Club Devon & Cornwall Centre welcome you to the 71st Tamar Trial to be held on Sunday 22nd October 2017.

This year’s Tamar route will be staying in the Mid/North Cornwall and West Devon area and we have reduced any mileage on the dual-carriageway to as little as possible. We are again using the starting area at Martin’s Cash & Carry and Launceston Football Club venue which is just a short distance from the A30 dual carriageway and less than 2 miles from our finish at The Winds of Change, South Petherwin. The trial will of course include the favourite hills of recent years and as always we strive to include some new sections to keep the event varied each year. Last year we were pleased to be able to complete the trial in daylight and we hope to do so again.

We are once again running the car side of the trial under a dual-permit. This allows non-championship contenders or those who perhaps only enter a few events over a year the chance to participate in the trial without the need for a competition license. For the Cars, Lockton’s have introduced a flat rate scheme of £5.50 plus IPT per vehicle for on-event cover which will ensure that all competitors are appropriately covered. Motorcycle competitors will again this year benefit from being covered for road mileage under the normal authorisation insurance certificate, meaning separate cover is not required. We look forward to offering you a good day’s trialling in a beautiful part of Devon and Cornwall.”

Start Venue : Martin’s Cash & Carry, Pennygillam Industrial Estate, Launceston, PL15 7ED

Mechanics Trial 2017 Regs Available

Entries are now open for the 2017 Mechanics Trial, to be held on Sunday 15th October.

2017 Mechanics Trial Entry Pack

“THE MECHANICS TRIAL originates from the late 1970’s when our Headquaters were located at the Mechanics Arms in Chalford. The Landlord and landlady, Jim & Liz Polly, presented the Mechanics Trophy to the Club giving us an opportunity to run an event in the pub’s name. The first Mechanics Trial ran in 1979 and was organised by Nigel Moss, Eric and Diana Wall. The single venue Classic Trial was held within a few miles of the pub in Badgers Wood, Cowcombe, Chalford. The event continued to run at various single venues including Catswood and Sallywood from 1984 to 2001. In 2002 the event ventured out onto the road with Gill and Edwin Hayward doing a great deal of work to create a brand new road trial for the club. Various organising teams have since kept the event on the road.

This year’s event is organised by a similar team to last year with, it will feature old favourite hills such as wood Lane and Viaduct and will follow a similar format to recent successful years. The trial will include a couple of old sections used on the Cotswold Clouds in the early 80’s Hobbs Choice a gentle rocky climb and a trick old favourite Bulls Cross. The event offers what we hope is a good day’s motorsport visiting some different parts of the Cotswold’s to our Cotswold Clouds Trial in February. The organising team make every effort to give all competitors a chance to climb some sections during the day but also making some a great challenge. The Mechanics Trial will run on a Clubman’s permit which means you do not need a competition licence. IF YOU ARE NOT COMPETING ON THE EVENT PLEASE CONSIDER MARSHALLING.”

Start Venue : SKF, Oldends Lane, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, GL10 3RH

Right in the heart of the Exmoor National Park, one of the smaller of the National Parks. Last year’s event was well received and we hope we have improved the event once again, and are sure that we can offer you a superb day’s motorsport in some of the best locations you will find. Exmoor in the autumn is still a wonderful place to be.

Kyrle Trial 2017 Regs Available

Ross & District Motor Sports Club LogoEntries are now open for the 2017 Kyrle Trial, to be held on Sunday 29th October.

2017 Kyrle Trial Entry Pack

“Ross & District Motor Sports Club have pleasure in welcoming you to the 40th running of The Kyrle Trial. Yes, 40 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.

Major new change for this year is that we are running 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 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, hill wise, real hills and certainly lots of mud. We will use some old favourite sections together with the new or resurrected hills.

The start will be at our usual spacious and well-equipped Whitchurch venue with fuel (cheapest in the Ross area), a good café and ample parking. The finish of the trial remains at our Club House in Ross-onWye 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 29th October and come along to marshal if you cannot enter. Tom Baker will be pleased to hear from you at any time on 07795 278899.

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, Glenn Morgan, Tom Baker and the Organising Team.

Start Venue : Symonds Yat Services, A40 Northbound, Whitchurch, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 6DP
