Entries are now open for the 2016 Kyrle Trial – running in October for the first time on Sunday 30th.
“Ross & District Motor Sports Club have pleasure in welcoming you to the 39th running of The Kyrle Trial.
A big change this year is the new date. This date change has been implemented so that we avoid the dreaded Goshawk nesting season which severely limits where we can go in the Forest of Dean. So hill wise things will be different due to this date change, wet but hopefully not too wet. You will note that we are starting the trial earlier than usual and this is being done so that we hope everyone can finish in daylight, as the clocks change the night before the trial.
The Clerk of the Course team is the same as last year, Nigel Green and Paul Bartleman. They have been out and about during the summer taking a look at old and new sections. Ongoing timber felling at Newton Woods, Monmouth still makes the use of hills here questionable. Weather-wise prepare for anything; hill-wise, real hills and certainly lots of mud. We will use some old favourite sections and hopefully, some new sections.
The start will be at our usual spacious and well-equipped Whitchurch venue with fuel (cheapest in the Ross area), a good café and ample parking. 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! Note the date, Sunday 30th October and please come along to marshal if you cannot enter. Tom Baker will be very glad to hear from you at any time on 07795 278899.
We look forward to seeing you for another good day’s trialing with around 12 competitive hills and two observed tests. Remember, our hills are not rough, but they are tough and steep.
Nigel Green, Paul Bartleman, Stuart Harrold, Neil Forrest, Glenn Morgan, Glenn Morgan, Tom Baker and the Organising Team.”
