Entries are now open for the 2017 Kyrle Trial, to be held on Sunday 29th October.
“Ross & District Motor Sports Club have pleasure in welcoming you to the 40th running of The Kyrle Trial. Yes, 40 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.
Major new change for this year is that we are running a Clubman’s trial alongside the main trial. You do not require a Competition Licence for the Clubman’s trial. We also include mandatory Road Traffic Act insurance in the entry fee.
We are staying with our autumn date to avoid the Goshawks. We will be starting early to make the most of the daylight. Don’t forget, 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 and have found some new ones and some that have not been used for many years. Weather wise prepare for anything, hill wise, real hills and certainly lots of mud. We will use some old favourite sections together with the new or resurrected hills.
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-onWye 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 29th October and come along to marshal if you cannot enter. Tom Baker will be pleased 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, John Tatlow, Neil Forrest, Glenn Morgan, Tom Baker and the Organising Team. “
