Entries are now open for the 2019 Bovey Down Trial, running on Sunday 24th March.
“Windwhistle Motor Club Ltd. is pleased to be able to run this non-championship event again this year. The club continues to develop this event and are looking to alter sections again this year. The
event is as competitive or friendly as you like to make it, however with sections run in groups, coffee breaks with onsite catering and toilet facilities it serves well as a great social event.
We offer you the opportunity for at least 3 daylight attempts at Norman’s Hump and Clinton as used in the MCC Exeter Trial and other sections which the landowner has kindly allowed us to create are included. No competition licence is required. In an attempt to encourage younger club members entries may be accepted from drivers aged 16 and over who do not hold a full RTA licence provided they are accompanied by someone that does, who is over 17 and is also an experienced trials driver and must produce a valid club membership card. A membership application form to the Windwhistle Motor Club will be available by email on request to the event secretary, or from the club website, to encourage entrants to join us on a more regular basis.
There will be a local charitable catering facility on site all day. Bacon rolls, pasties and homemade cakes etc. and a toilet facility. The flint surface at the venue can be aggressive on your tyres – perhaps use this opportunity to use up old tyres. If you still have some KL78s or Kingpins K4S we will allow you to use them.
In 2019 this will be almost 4 weeks before the Lands End trial. Please enter early as we can only accommodate around 40 entries in the restricted space available to us.”
Venue : Bovey Down Woods, Stafford Cross, Southleigh, EX24 6JJ (don’t use this postcode for sat navs though! The map shows the correct location).
