“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

ACTC on Tour

As part of the ACTC restructuring and revitalising efforts, and with a view to the future of Classic Trials, we have launched an ‘ACTC on Tour’ initiative.

The ACTC, represented by Chairman, Vice Chairman and Secretary are looking to meet with members of the Trialing community in their local area, to listen and hear what they have to contribute to this vital and ongoing process, and to hopefully get some input from individual competitors as to how they would like the sport to move forward into the future.

We are looking to the Clubs and their Trials members to arrange their local venue, and together we can arrange a mutually agreeable date and time to have an informal discussion and exchange of ideas.

This is an initiative to hopefully bridge the perceived ‘communication gap’ between the ACTC and the individuals of the Trialing community.

If you feel that your voice hasn’t or isn’t being heard, you could strongly lobby your Club to organise a meeting in your local area, or join in one of the meetings arranged by another Club .

Currently we have :

Stroud and District Motor Club are meeting on Sunday 13th January, 7.30pm, at Fromebridge Mill, GL2 7PD [J13, M5, start venue of Cotswold Clouds]
Hopefully this venue will also be convenient for people from the Bristol clubs and Ross and District etc.

Launceston and North Cornwall Motor Club on Thursday 28th February, with a venue in the Launceston area to be confirmed, and they are inviting other local clubs to participate.

Other Club meetings, dates and venues to be added as arranged.

Cheers

Carl

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

2019 Clee Hills Trial

Good news, the Clee Hills Trial is back! Put 20th January 2019 in your diary.

The long-standing organising team are now bolstered by some extra willing helpers, bringing their experiences on both 2 and 4 wheels, so January’s event in Shropshire is on the ACTC calendar for 2019.

Open to competitors on 2, 3 and 4 wheels, we aim to continue our track record of getting all classes well matched and equally successful whilst enjoying a great day’s classic trial in the lovely Shropshire scenery.

The route will start and finish from the Squirrel Pub SY8 1LP near Ludlow, next door to an adjacent Travelodge, SY8 1LS, ample trailer parking close by at the Ludlow Park & Ride and fuel on the site too. There’s room for on-site scrutineering which we hope to run both on the evening before and in the morning.

The route is refreshed, featuring more tracks and less mud, yet still running the twin loop system that gets us all done in the mid-winter daylight. Come and have (another) go at epic sections like Priors Holt 1, Hungerford, Jenny Wind and Meadowley Wood.

About 70 miles around Wenlock Edge, along the spectacular ridge of the delightful Long Mynd, some old lanes and some woodland tracks, and relatively non-damaging in our Class 0 option.

The event will run as a Dual Permit, with Clubmans accommodating those entrants without a comps license, for example MCC drivers. VSCC triallers continue to be especially welcome, bringing delight to other drivers’, the marshals and spectators alike.
