Andrew Brown & team have been busy marking out and the trial is geared to be Clubman friendly.  There will be some more challenging sections on the hard route for those looking forward to The Scott Trial.  There will be 2 laps of 20 sections.  Thinking of our observers, please watch for the section closing times which will be adhered to – ie. no hanging about at the back please!

Anyone who still has Scott Trial annual trophies to return for engraving, please bring them along and leave with the trial secretary.
