It is with regret that Richmond Motor Club and The Reeth 3 Day Clerk of Course have taken the decision to cancel this year’s trial, due to the real risk of fire on the moorlands following weeks of dry weather, which is forecast to continue leading up to the trial.
We have seen the devastating effect of the fires on Saddleworth Moor and moorlands in other areas. Richmond Motor Club have not taken this decision lightly, as much time and work has already been undertaken by our dedicated team of Clerks of Course, Secretaries and helpers, however as a responsible club, we feel that we cannot put our local moorlands and farmland at risk, nor put the custodians of the moors; our gamekeepers, landowners and farmers in such a position where running the trial could put their livelihood, birds and animals at risk.
We will be in touch with riders in due course and more information on the administration side will be posted on the website as it becomes available.
ACU Trials licence/registration cards MUST be produced at all Richmond Motor Club trials, including Club, Centre and National trials.
Please bring your current trials licence/registration card and have it ready to show when you enter/sign on. If you are unable to produce your current ACU card you will be asked to purchase a one event trial registration on the day at a cost of £3 each.
This is important, as each licence/registration holder should be affiliated annually to the ACU via a local club and as such receives an ACU competition licence/Trials registration card to compete. The most important reason for this is insurance. In the event of any injury sustained we have to demonstrate that the injured rider is a current ACU member and has a valid licence/registration to compete.
Please help us do our job by bringing your current ACU registration card with you to every trial and avoid having to pay an extra £3 on the day for a one event registration.
Please note that we will be checking cards at each trial and remember to bring yours with you. If you have not already registered you can do so from this link: https://www.acu.org.uk/ridersmembers/license-forms.aspx
