Entries are now open for the 2019 Cotswold Clouds Trial, to be held on Sunday 3rd February.
“On Sunday 3rd February 2019 we welcome you to join us, as we have done since 1963, for our annual Cotswold Clouds Classic Trial. Over the years many competitors and spectators have enjoyed the Cotswold Hills, and this year will hopefully be no exception. Some sections have been eased to suit all classes but still present a challenge, and of course, we still have the old favourites to be climbed including Crooked Mustard, Nailsworth Ladder and Wicked Juniper. Having seemingly managed to reduce the annual queue for Mustard, we are introducing a slight change of format to see if we can manage the same for Axe. Also introducing a Clubmans Class for pre 1960 front engine cars.
The Clouds, winner of the ACTC Trial of the Year award in 2016, remains a successful and popular trial attracting a full entry for many years. The organising team of Carl Talbot, Mark Hobbs, Nigel Scotford, Ben Giles and Suzanne Burns look forward to receiving your entries, so please complete and return the enclosed entry form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We will keep you updated with entries via our website and the Clubs Facebook page.
The excellent facilities at Fromebridge Mill will again be the start venue, where signing on and scrutineering will also take place as per previous years. Tea, coffee and hot food will be available as usual. No trailers should be taken to the start but they can be left at SKF as previously.
The trial will finish at the Minchinhampton Common Golf Club where good food and drinks will be available at very reasonable prices, so please support them.
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. Our Chief Marshal is Nigel Scotford, so please give him a ring on 01453 884691 or 01453 873787 if you are able to help in any way.
We look forward to seeing you on the hills.”
Start Venue : Fromebridge Mill, Fromebridge Lane, Gloucester, GL2 7PD
