Entries are now open for the 2018 Yorkshire Dales Trial, to be held on Sunday 13th May.
“ROUND 8 OF THE ACTC CHAMPIONSHIP AND ROUND 3 OF THE ACTC NORTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP FOR CARS & MOTORCYCLES.
We are delighted to invite back all CLUBMEN, ACTC, ACU and VSCC competitors for the fourth running of this popular event. You are promised another excellent variety of sections and a new one introduced to keep you on your toes. We have also increased the off road mileage between sections as requested by some of our regular motorcycle competitors. Pateley Bridge cattle market is again playing host, ensuring a compact route plus ample parking for competing vehicles, plus trailers and tenders. The adjoining café will be open for food and drink for the duration of the event, whilst fuel is available nearby.
As in previous years we will be running a raffle in aid of the Air Ambulance. This charity is very dear to the hearts of our landowners and making a donation to this charity greatly helps us to obtain permissions to use our sections and farm tracks.
The Trial will have Clubmans and Nat. B permits, with the normal classes for cars & motorcycles. Plus as last year there will be additional separate classes with awards :-
Class 0 :- to cater for those preferring not to tackle the more difficult sections there will be an open car & a closed car class.
Class V :- Long & Short wheelbase classes for VSCC eligible cars. (VSCC members may alternatively enter either class 2 or 5)
Class X :- Road legal motorcycles that do not comply with classes A to D.
Also this year we have applied for and obtained an ACU Special Events Permit which allows motorcycles and motorcycle sidecar outfits fitted with road legal tyres that do not comply with ACU tyre regulations TSR8 to enter the event in this class.
As last year we are also giving an award to the best Japanese production car entered in class 5, so come along and enter your X90’s & MX5’s (This award will not affect the normal class positions in class 5).
We are also giving an award to the best Historic non production Trials Car built prior to 1970, under 1200cc, complying with and entered in Class 8.
We hope you can enter for a really good days trialling. If you are unable to compete and would like to marshal please contact Rupert North on 07887 376739 or [email protected]
