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.
Just a quick post to say that we will be doing the draw for numbers in the next couple of days so anyone needing to withdraw please let us know asap as it makes it much easier for us to fit in those on the waiting list before rather than after the draw. A full rider refund of £90 will be given before the draw takes place.
MINTEX: This year riders will once again have number boards similar to the Scott Trial and Reeth 3 Day which they can take home as a reminder of their day. Riders and Observers will get a copy of the programme in their packs but for anyone not riding or observing you can download and print out a copy of the programme here: Mintex 2018 Programme
We look forward to seeing everyone bright and early on Sunday morning for what we hope will be a great day.

Closing date for entries is Friday 6th April, after which there will be a ballot if the entry limit is reached.
We are changing the arrangements for catering this year, and there will be NO Riders carvery on the Friday Night. Instead we will have catering available all weekend and riders will be given 2 x £5 vouchers to use with the caterers throughout the weekend from breakfast to evening. There will of course still be a heated marquee available for all to use and a bar throughout the weekend. We hope that everyone will use the facilities as much as possible for get togethers throughout the weekend, making it the fantastic sporting and social event that it has become.
This year for the first time we will have hot showers available on the field along with the usual toilet facilities but will be keeping the camping price the same at £20 for the weekend.
Please read the Regs for all information regarding Classes, Courses, Camping and everything else you need to know.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE
