The GE Brown & Son Trophy Centre Championship Trial is our next event this Sunday 16th September 10.30am at The Old Mill, Low Row, Richmond, DL11 6NH. Adult, Green, Clubman, Youth A & B.
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.

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.
