Dear All
With the sports governing body – the ACU, now organising the British round of the World Championship near Bradford on the weekend of July 8th and 9th the Federation are delighted to announce that free admission will be given to all ACU Licence holders – both competitors and Officials – at the entrance if they show their membership card.

Since agreeing to run the event approximately two weeks ago much work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure the Trial stays in the original venue which is a mecca for all off road fans with easy access to all the fifteen sections and ACU Directors have been keen to ensure all members have the opportunity to watch this event first hand at minimal cost.  The action takes place over two days with the Practice session starting at 11am on the Saturday followed by the new concept timed qualifying session at 3pm which has been the highlight of the previous four events to date this year. In addition, about sixty riders of the future will compete in the morning Oset Trial on a separate pocket hanker chief course within the confines of the Trial area.

Of course, the big day is Sunday when all of the world’s top riders, including the unique Toni Bou, will demonstrate their skills over fifteen spectacular sections from 9am onwards with an early finish time of around 3pm. The course has been designed for all spectators to be able to visit all sections with a dedicated path away from the Trial route for ease and safety.

ACU Chairman John Collins stated, “It is rewarding for the Directors, who have considered many options ahead of this decision, to be in a position where our members can reap some benefits and receive the opportunity to see all of the world’s best riders in action at no cost to themselves. The system is simple, members will just need to show their photographic membership card at the point of entry and they will be allowed in free of charge whilst non- members will have to pay the normal admission prices”.

Members who wish to camp will need to pay the standard camping fee but an informative glossy programme will be given free to all who attend.  All ACU licence holders who have already purchased advance tickets will be refunded after the event but the ACU respectfully ask that members be patient as this has to be done methodically.

Full details of the event can be found on the official Trial GP website.

Kind regards


Gary Thompson MBE BEM

General Secretary
