2024 Torbay Trial Online Entry

“The Torbay Trial will run as qualifying rounds of the 2024 ACTC and the ASWMC Classic Reliability Trial Championships on Sunday 17th March 2024 and will again cater for Car and Motorcycle Classes.

The Trial will start and finish at Exeter Court Hotel, Kennford, Exeter EX6 7UX. This is adjacent to the A38 dual carriageway approximately 2 miles from the end of the M5 motorway.

This event has grown in popularity and has often reached full capacity; to avoid disappointment it is recommended that you submit your entry early.

The online entry form has been simplified this year as some people struggled to upload their Club Membership Card and Competition Licences.

There is now the option to upload these details at point of entry OR provide them for manual checking at signing-on (like the old days!).

If you are not planning to compete but can help to Marshal, then please contact Dave Haizelden Clerk of Course – 07841 860121.

Keith & Dave, Torbay Motor Club”

2024 March Hare Trial Entry List

“Encouraged by overwhelming positive feedback after the 75th Anniversary Trial, Falcon Motor Club have elected to run a similar event this year under the guise of the well known March Hare Classic Trial. We plan to run the event to a similar format as the 75th Anniversay Trial with entry open to both cars and motorcycles.

Starting at Porky’s Diner at Honeybourne near Evesham and finishing at Egypt Mill, Nailsworth, the 72 mile route will again include many of the historic sections once used by The Colmore & Guy Fawkes Trials, this year including a section at Kineton, last used around 70 years ago. Many of the sections are ‘gentle’ so those who compete in our field trials or have less capable/older machinery can enjoy the event without undue risk. None of the sections will be rough, but this year there will be a few testing ones on muddy surfaces, so those at the top of the Classic Trials scene will still find the event challenging in places. For those more used to road rallies or field trials, there is the unique experience of travelling over 14 miles of ‘white’ roads with the rest on minor Cotswold lanes and everything prepared with a reasonable ground clearance should be fine on these lanes.

We hope to make the event an annual round of the ACTC championship next year, so this will be a dry run to check we’ve got the level of challenge right – an entry level trial, but with a few ‘stoppers’ to challenge everyone. We are also re-introducing the old Falcon ‘Triple’ award – the Cotswold Stone Trophy, for anyone who can achieve a Gold Medal three years in a row.

Trailer parking is available at the finish in Nailsworth, and a proposed route to follow from there to the start at Honeybourne will be provided.

For car entrants an RS Clubman competition licence is required for both driver & passenger – for motorcycle entrants an ACU licence is required – please ensure you read the event regulations carefully.

The organising team looks forward to receiving your entry. If you are unable to enter, please consider volunteering to marshal by contacting the event secretary with your offer to help.”

Start Venue : Porky’s Diner, Weston Road, Honeybourne, Evesham, WR11 7QF

Stroud & District Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2024 Cotswold Clouds Trial, to be held on Sunday 4th February.

2024 Cotswold Clouds Trial Regulations

2024 Cotswold Clouds Trial Online Entry

“On Sunday 4th February 2024 we welcome you to join us, as we have done since 1963, for our annual Cotswold Clouds Classic Trial. Over the years many competitors, marshals and spectators have enjoyed the Cotswold Hills and this year will hopefully be no exception. Although some of the hills may provide more of a challenge than others, the clerks of the course do not wish to make all sections stoppers for any of the 9 classes, giving all the chance to successfully climb some hills during the day.

The Clouds remains a successful and popular trial attracting a full entry for many years. The organising team of Nigel Moss, Julian Archbold, Ben Giles and Suzanne Burns look forward to receiving your entries, so please complete your online entry as soon as possible to avoid disappointment (if you require a paper entry form please contact the Secretary asap). We will keep you updated with entries via our website and facebook page.

The excellent facilities at Fromebridge Mill will again be the start venue as in previous years. Tea, coffee and hot food will be available as usual. Trailer parking will be available at the Fromebridge Mill. Also as previous years, The Minchinhampton Golf Club, Minchinhampton Common, will host the finish. Hot food and drinks will be served and competitors and marshals will be made welcome.

If you’re not planning to compete this year, please consider offering your services as a Marshal. These offers are so very much appreciated and we literally couldn’t do it without you. If you are able to help in any way, please contact either Nigel Moss (07870277163) or Julian Archbold (07967729753).

We look forward to seeing you on the hills.

Start Venue : Fromebridge Mill, Fromebridge Lane, Gloucester, GL2 7PD

2024 Clee Hills Trial Regulations (Cars)
2024 Clee Hills Trial Regulations (Bikes)

“This year, the Clee Hills Trial changes significantly, and yet it stays the same. At the summit of the organization we have a new club – Midland Manor Motor Club, but below them the organising team remains the same. Clerk of Course – Simon Woodall; Chief Marshal – Adrian Tucker-Peake; Secretay of Meeting – Pat Toulmin. plus their stalwart assistants – Barbara Selkirk; Richard Houlgate; Mark Powis; Graham Austin

The route remains very similar to last year, what the pre-Covid regulars would recognise as the “Eastern Loop”. We lose one section, and gain one new one that we already passed on last year’s route. Everyone will do all the same hills, but with Class O missing out those deemed not suitable. No special class for the HSTA Heritage cars, but they are welcome in Class O. Bikes will be expected to have factory fitted lights, unless running in Class X. 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.

The start is once again at The Squirrel in Ludlow, with the Travelodge next door one on side, and petrol at the Co-op on the other side. Could a start be more convenient? Signing On reverts to paper and Scrutineering will be carried out electronically, but we will have an official wandering around the carpark making random checks. The route will be just under 75 miles (this is not just luck, Motorsport UK has a price change at 75 miles so we like to keep below that.), with a fuel stop at about half way round.

Riders of the heavier ‘Himalayan’ bikes have had their criticisms noted and will have a slightly easier route this time round.”
