Entries are now open for the 2017 Northern Trial. Separate regs and entry forms for cars and bikes are below.
“The 2017 Northern Classic Trial has a compact route of 57 road and 20 forestry miles around the Northern Lake District visiting many of the sections from previous years including the infamous Sandale, Black Hole and, once again, Big Cockup. We will use variable tyre pressures, diversions and a few restarts to make the trial more enjoyable for all competitors. The start venue is at the Hope’s Auction Mart in Wigton, they are geared up for farmers and we fit in well. Very good hot food and drinks will be available before the start and after the finish. Last year, thanks to our competitors, we raised £250 for the Flood Relief Fund.
In the National B event is open to members of member clubs of the ACTC. We have the eight standard car classes for those drivers wishing to enter the ACTC Championship.
The Clubmans event, which doesn’t require a MSA Competition Licence, is open to members of FSAC and members of invited clubs: – MCC, VSCC, Wigton MC, Preston & District VCC, Durham AC, Middle-England CVC, Ilkley DMC, Airedale & Pennine MCC and other ACTC Affiliated Clubs. Except for class 0 the Clubmans event will follow the same route and sections as the National B. This year’s event is Round 3 of the ACTC Championship for cars.
Storm Desmond caused us more than a few problems in 2016, several sections were washed out and unusable or blocked by fallen trees. On top of this forestry operations meant we were unable to access several more. Twelve months on and forestry operations have moved on and time has restored some of the damaged sections. We hope to use Big Cockup again for the first time for about eight years.
If you are unable to enter perhaps you would be willing to join our enthusiastic team of marshals, Myke Pocock will be very pleased to hear from you on 01228 530555 or [email protected] .
Wishing you all the best for Christmas and New Year
