“Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club welcomes you to the 74th Tamar Trial to be held on Sunday 17th October 2021, catering for motorcycles, combinations and cars.

As always we try and keep the route fresh and varied and this year will see us re-visit the north coast of Cornwall for the first time in a few years and hopefully, into some new territory in West Devon, the trial will still include the favourite hills from previous years.

The start venue will be Proper Ansome Café, Maunders Yard, Link Road, Launceston, PL15 9HS and the finish is the Frog & Bucket Pub, PL15 7LP in South Petherwin, just outside of Launceston. Both the start and finish are only a few miles from the A30 dual-carriageway.

We are pleased to be able to offer the easy to use online entry system again available at www.lncmc.co.uk/online-entry –  alternatively postal entries are still welcomed.

We hope you will join us on the 17th October and we look forward to offering you a good day’s trialling in a beautiful part of Devon and Cornwall.”

2021 Mechanics Trial Entry Pack

“Following an extended and unwelcome hibernation, Stroud & District Motor Club are delighted to invite you to join us on the 10th October 2021 for the Mechanics Trial 2021.

The Mechanics Trial originates from the late 1970’s when the clubs Headquarters were located at the Mechanics Arms PH 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 at Sallywood Farm 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, 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 tricky 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.”

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

“Welcome to the 50th running of the Derek Merson Exmoor Clouds Trial! Once again, we are grateful to Derek Merson for his continued support. After the successful running of a single venue trial in 2020, we are returning to a full road trial for this landmark year for the Exmoor Clouds and Minehead Motor Club! We are also delighted to announce that we can once again accept motorcycle entries for 2021, after unfortunately losing them for the 2020 event.

The event will once again be based from Headon Woods, where competitors will head out on a slightly shortened road loop, taking in some old favourites and a couple of hills not seen for a few years. Returning to Headon, we will then use the best of our hills from last year’s trial, with the possibility of a couple of new sections in a previously unused piece of woodland! All in, we aim to provide at least 14 sections and 2 special tests for you to enjoy, all in the beautiful setting of Exmoor!

With the easing of Covid restrictions, we are also pleased to allow the return of paper, meaning you can fill out your entry and return it in the post if you wish! Alternatively, they can be completed and returned to [email protected]

Last year’s event was very well received by competitors, and we intend to build on that momentum and provide a challenging day’s sport in the September sunshine!”
