Putoline South Midland Tough Ten Trial

Thursday March 10, 2016 at 2:18pm
The sixth running of this increasingly popular prestige trial, organised by the Berkhamsted, Hillingdon & Uxbridge and Kenton & Kingsbury clubs will take place at its usual venue of Round Rocket Plantation, West Hyde Lane, Gerrards Cross, Bucks. SL9 0QP on the 12th June, 2016 with a start time of 10-30.


The trial will follow the usual format of four laps of ten sections with four routes, all on private ground by kind permission of the Haslam family. It’s a cracking trials venue used by Sam Haslam as his practice ground, so it offers plenty of challenge for your riding skills.


There is plenty of parking, Sizzlers hot food and refreshments will be in attendance and overnight camping is available for Saturday night, though you will need your own water supply and toilet facility. Toilets will be provided for the trial on the Sunday.


Classes will be Elite Expert, Expert, Intermediate, Novice/Clubmen combined, Elite Youth, Youth A, B and C. By request we are introducing an Over 40 class riding the Inter route and an Over 50 class riding the Novice/Clubmen route. Something for everyone. The trial is run on the punch card system with lap scores being posted as the trial progresses and results being declared shortly after the finish.


 Prize money will be on offer to the first three in each adult class and suitable trophies to the winner of all Youth classes. As the trial is sponsored by Putoline Oils there will be a ‘Goody bag’ of their products to the first three in all classes.


In addition John Lee & Sons are providing  raffle prizes for which every rider will be given a free ticket. The main prize is usually a rear tyre which by tradition is the LAST item to be won. Observers and punch operators will have their own raffle.


Clerk of Course Graham Haslam will set sections marked to a National standard for the Elite riders such as Sam Haslam and Alexz Wigg and any other riders of similar ability, with sections marked to a Centre level standard for all other classes. Expect a tough but fair challenge to your skills, so come and enjoy a great riding day.


Entry details will be found in TMX, The Sporting Motorcyclist, on the berkotrials.com and hux.org websites or by contacting Secretary of the Meeting Karen Southwood on her email kags51@virginmedia.com
or on her mobile 07702 083983 or 01582 477234. Entries on line are the preferred method without entries on the day so that we can prepare a list of riders for all to see.


As the trial is run with punch cards we need ten observers and ten punch operators so if you would like to do one of these jobs I would be very pleased to hear from you. Contact me on 07976 043027 or by email on joanandted.north@btinternet.com
