2021 Clee Hills Trial Entrypack (Bikes)

“The event is open to competitors on two, three and four wheels in Classes A,B1, B2,B3, C, D, E, X 1-8, 90 and Class O.

Bikes must have lights please, all cars will be required to carry a passenger but so long as the driver is happy that the person alongside them is in their bubble there will be not further restrictions (subject to any change in Government/Motorsport UK/ACU recommendations). Details of our Covid rules will be published with the final instructions as things may well change.

The event is starting and finishing at The Squirrel (just off the A49 at Foldgate Lane, Ludlow SY8 1LP [email protected])

Accommodation will be available at the Travelodge next door. travelodge.co.uk – Search for LUDLOW, NOT Wooferton (that one is not far away, just not next door)

The 74 mile route through sunny Shropshire includes (currently) ten of our favourite hills, including the Jenny-Wind and Meadowley Wood plus a couple of new ones. There is no figure-of-eight this year, and although we welcome Class O entrants, their route is the same as the others, but just dropping some of the less suitable sections.

Signing On, and Scrutineering will be carried out electronically as per the current regulations, but we WILL have an official wandering around the carpark making random checks. Once again we will be offering the option of Shared Drives, this is NOT double-running, the car gets one score regardless of which person drives the section, rather like the drivers in long-distance sports car racing. Both drivers must be in the car throughout the event. Full regs can be seen at www.cleehillstrial.info and “paper” copies of the entry forms can be down loaded for those of your friend who do not do Internet. Updates to the entry list and news items will also be posted here as time progresses.”

As this will be the first ACTC event since the reclassification of Dellows, it is worth recapping where they fit. Side-Valve cars on crossplies – Class 2; Side-Valve cars on Radials – Class 5; OHV engined Cars – Class 7.

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

No Motorsport Until at least July 2020

Latest from Motorsport UK.

In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, Motorsport UK has today extended its suspension of all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June.

This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, venues, competitors, officials and volunteer marshals of the role that Motorsport UK must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.

In recent days the feedback from our members and the community was a need for increased clarity to allow them to plan appropriately and, should the need arise, put in place necessary contingency measures.

Motorsport UK Chairman, David Richards explained, “Motorsport UK has a vital role to play with its community in re-inforcing that, at this time of national emergency, we must all stay at home to play our part in protecting the NHS and ultimately saving lives.  Today, the government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, it is evident that the most responsible course of action was to propose a longer suspension of our sport.  When we reflect back on this time, it will be a brief, but vital, hiatus from our everyday motorsport life and we must put this in perspective.  This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives.”

Motorsport UK will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorsport community accordingly.
