“WELCOME TO THE CLEE HILLS TRIAL IN SOUTH SHROPSHIRE
2020 sees a return to what appeared to be a very popular start venue last year – The Squirrel just of the A49 at Ludlow with its Travelodge next door, and petrol available at the Co-op supermarket also next door.
2020 sees the 40th anniversary of the launch of the modern Clee Hills Trial organised by Simon Woodall and Barbara Selkirk, with both still involved in the organisation, Simon as Clerk of the Course, although he has not done all 40, he has done a lot of them. The hills remain much the same as last year, with a few tweeks to reflect criticisms of last time, plus the return of Strefford Wood for the upper classes. A few extra changes are included to make life in Class O a little easier.
Once again we welcome those on Two, Three or Four wheels with a few changes to the classes to reflect the use of more trials derived machines.
We continue with our unique twin loop system, which should ensure that all competitors can get round the course in the short January daylight. 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 on a road based Classic Trial. About 75 miles around Wenlock Edge and the delightful Long Mynd, some old lanes and some woodland.
Start Venue : The Squirrel, Foldgate Lane, Ludlow, SY8 1LP
Entries are now open for the 2019 Camel Classic Trial, to be held on Sunday 1st December.
2019 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

Manual/Postal Entries : 2019 Hardy Trial Entry Pack
“Welcome to the 2019 Woolbridge Hardy Classic Trial. The event is a round of the ACTC car and motorcycle championships and also counts for the ASWMC Classic Trials Championship, and we look forward to receiving your entries. The Bridport & Weymouth Motorcycle Club is again running the motorcycle classes under a separate ACU permit. We are also again running a Clubmans event for club members and others without a competition licence, including a 4 wheel drive class; these will run strictly behind the main event and are not permitted to overtake main event competitors.
We are using the Lockton insurance scheme for cars, whereby the entry fee includes £15.12 for all competitors. There is no opt-out for anyone who has their own insurance, but this small extra cost for those competitors is outweighed by the benefit to competitors who previously paid more per event, and the certainty that everyone competing is covered for road use. Motorcycles are covered by a similar arrangement as part of the ACU permit process.
The start and finish will again be at the Clay Pigeon kart track at Warden Hill on the A37 between Dorchester and Yeovil. There is parking for trailers. Results for the ACTC championship classes will be displayed at the finish on a provisional basis only. They will be then be e-mailed or posted to competitors who will be given seven days to raise any queries in accordance with Blue Book D26.1.3. Hot food and drinks will be available at the start and finish in the New Club House/Restaurant.“
Start Venue : Clay Pigeon Kart Track, off A37 between Yeovil and Dorchester, DT2 9PW

2019 Kyrle Trial Entry Pack
“Ross & District Motor Sports Club have pleasure in welcoming you to the 42nd running of The Kyrle Trial. Yes, 42 years ago the first Kyrle Trial was organised in April 1977. A single venue event by Richard Andrews up on May Hill and it was won by Eric Wall in his Canhi. I am pleased to say that some of those original organisers are still involved today.
As in the previous two years we will have a Clubman trial running alongside the main trial. You DO NOT require a Competition Licence for the Clubman trial. We offer Reis Motorsport Road Traffic Act insurance for those that require it at £15.00. We are stopping with our autumn date to avoid the nesting Goshawks and we will be starting early to make the most of the daylight. Don’t forget, the clocks change the night before the trial. This year a new Clerk of the Course, Owen Jones assisted by lots of ‘old hands’. We have a good selection of hills to chose from, most in very good condition. Be prepared for all sorts of weather.
Our hills are suitable for all classes and driver skills, our hills are not rough, but they are tough and steep. Unfortunately we have had to increase our entry fee as Forestry England has increased the charges they make for the use of their land. Another new start venue this year and we hope it will be successful. The finish of the trial remains at our Club House in Ross-on-Wye where tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available and the bar will be open to help quench honest thirst! Please note the date, Sunday 27th October and come along to marshal if you cannot enter. Ollie Jenkins will be pleased to hear from you at any time on 07880 354533 or [email protected]
We look forward to seeing you for another good day’s trialing with around 14 competitive hills and two observed tests.
Owen Jones, Ollie Jenkins, Nigel Green, Stuart Harrold, John Tatlow, Neil Forrest, Alan & Hilary Baker, and the Organising Team.“
