A great day was had by all at the Camel Vale South Coast Trial, Poldew Farm, Lostwithiel. Camel Vale were also running a sporting trial on the steeper slopes of the same field. The relatively dry ground meant we had some tight and testing hills, although of the hills had some additional moisture by being cleverly positioned right on top of a natural spring. Duncan Stephens won overall, full results to follow.
Several clubs who run classic trials also run “Car Trials” (previously called PCT’s – Production Car Trials) over the summer months. So if you want to get out and test your car over the summer and practice your trickling then come and have a go!
of course don’t forget the Testing Trial on Sun 12th July to brush up on those special tests!
The regs for this years MCC Testing Trial are now online. The date is 12th July (not 5th as previously shown in the ACTC calendar) and will be held at it’s now familiar location of Keinton Mandeville. Last year saw some great battles for class honours and an overall win for an Austin 7, hopefully this year will be just as competitive, 12 tests are planned and with 4 or 5 rounds that means in the region of 50 – 60 tests for a bargain entry fee of £22. Hopefully the weather will be kind again and a good days sport can be had. I will need approx 40 marshals so I’d obviously be very happy to hear from any volunteers (there is a marshals draw at the end of the day so you might even take home a bottle of plonk or similar) I can be contacted on 07973 986803 or by email at [email protected]
Here are the results for the 2015 Yorkshire Dales Trial:
