To the riders thankyou for all you kind comments the vast majority enjoyed themselves and said so. See you again next year hopefully.
Next weekend for the Dartmoor 2 day Trial(3rd-4th Sept). We would be grateful for any offers of help in observing either of the two days in the rocky streams. Just make yourselves known to the organisers. Thanks

31st May 2016
The entry forms for the 2016 Dartmoor 2 day Classic Trial in Devon on 3rd and 4th September 2016 are now on the website under ‘Entry Forms.
Please note that responding to requests from some for a few more difficult sections for those who feel the Star route is too hard and the gentleman’s route is too easy, we have added a class in between called ‘Past and Present’ which will be a 50/50 route. That is 50% of the sections you would need to ride would be from the Star route. These will be selected from the easiest half of this harder route. Rest assured the easier Gentlemans route and the Star route will be about the same as last year. There will still be the two routes through each section and please note that the overall classification is a ‘C’ class trial not a B class which is printed on the regulations.
The Past Master route will only be on the Gentlemans route. Note that the entries close on Saturday 2nd July OR when full. Entry limit 120.
11th April Exmoor Awards. The awards have been slightly amended because I failed to see that the Colin Dommett Shield on the Star route was for best Pre-70 and not best performance overall. Similarly on the Gentlemans route. See Results sheet-Awards
6th April 2016
Full Results and Awards of the 2016 Exmoor Classic 2 Day Trial are now in the RESULTS section. Thanks to all who competed. The results took a little longer due to the state of the observers Boards in the rain which was the primary reason for scubbing the results from section 4 on the first day. I think it was the worst weather we have ever experienced thanks to storm Katie-and that includes the year when we had snow and biting winds up on Exmoor. To sample the cream of Devon warmth and sunshine why not try the Dartmoor Classic 2 day trial on the 3rd and 4th September. Regulations will be on this site sometime in May or June.
Thats all folks-See some of you next year in the nice Spring sunshine that we usually have.

Sorry to relay the news that our president Brian Trott passed away yesterday peacefully, with his wife Pat and son Roger by his side. Brian, a friend to so many was born in 1927 and enjoyed the majority of his 88 years with a good percentage of that time spent working and playing with Motorcycles of all descriptions. News of the funeral arrangements will be relayed when known. RIP Brian
