Disappointed would be the biggest understatement I could make – Chris

Hi all,

The headline above shows the frustration that Chris Bullock is having to live with after his hard work to get 101minis up & running. As he says “Literally jumped through hoops with the boss just to be told no. Obviously all the time money and effort is wasted.

Until I find a spot of appropriate land that’s it for mini bikes in the south west until someone else steps up.

Massive thanks for the help and support – Chris

So – does anyone have ideas about suitable ground preferably around Chris’s Bristol base??

Let me know if you have & it’ll be passed on pronto

Disappointing News for 101minis, RT Keedwell T/Trial Regs, Errington Cup Regs, NSMSC GMB Garages & Tattoo-Time Trophies Results.

Hello all,

We have several items to update you with:  Tuesdays Board Meeting heard the bad news that the 101minis Club track up at Tormarton has had the plug pulled on it by the Landowner. We are very disappointed at this unilateral decision. All the hard work that goes into establishing a new Club, finding a new venue, building the track, getting the Track Certificated for Racing & arranging Licenced ACU officials for their inaugural Event has been wasted. The Centre has been very involved with this Project and thanks particularly  Chris Bullock the prime mover in 101minis, and Nick Steadman, Tom Gerken & ACU Chairman – & Chairman of the Moto Cross Committee, Brian Higgins for their input & support of the project

The Regs for NSMSC’s RT Keedwell Transport Club Timed Trial are published & available here: nsmsc-rt-keedwll-trophy-tt-regs-entry-forms-250916

Going back a little while, the NSMSC GMB Garages Time Trial Results on 20th July are here, nsmsc-gmb-garages-ttrial-results-200716 – click – & Jerry’s Report said ‘Evening Frank, Results of North Somerset Club’s GMB Garages Trophy Time Trial, held on Wednesday evening at Hanham Mills are attached for the website.

In unusually dry and warm conditions, Jason Hamblin took another easy overall win losing just 3 marks on observation plus 2 on time. Simon Prideaux was runner up on 17 with Andy Scrivens taking third spot in the trials class on 30.

In the scrambles class Andy Frost was in a league of his own on his new KTM350XC, losing just 32 marks in the tight and twisty sections plus 1 mark on time. Charlie Frost set ‘standard time’ but lost 75 marks on observation and Tom Smith claimed third spot on 84.

Best regards

Apologies for the late posting, but our visit to Sweden ‘got in the way’ but if you want to see an interesting collection of bikes visit some of our Saab driving colleagues were quite interested in the pre 65 SSDT video that was on a large screen loop,

Another late NSMSC posting due to our holiday are the NSMSC’s Tattoo-Time Trophy Results which are here nsmsc-tattoo-time-trophy-ttrial-results-060816 & about which Jerry says “‘Morning Frank,
Results of North Somerset Club’s 90 minute Time Trial held at Frys Bottom Lane, Chelwood on Saturday are attached for the website.
On a very technical and deceptively slippery course the Trials bikes seemed to fare better than the Enduro machines, with Jason Hamblin taking the overall win on zero marks lost. Rapidly improving Ricky Hudson took second spot in the Trials class losing just 7 marks with Jack Blacker not far behind on 11.
Andy Frost was best of the Scrambles class losing 12 marks, narrowly beating Nathan Newman on 14. Tom Smith took the final podium position on 19 marks lost.
Regards: Jerry”

Necessity is the mother of invention? Congratulations to our Centre runners in the British Sidecar Enduro Championship Clubman Class.

Hello all,

We’re back from Sweden, not without some machine problems, but the positives have outweighed the negatives.

Congratulations are due to Andy Scrivens & Martin Lawford for their 1st place in the 2016 ACU Sidecar Enduro Championship in the Clubman Class, just to show how strong the Centre in this branch of the sport, Simon Chilcott & Ben Sinclair were runners up in the Class!

You have to be lateral thinkers sometimes, & Simon & Ben were when they broke their handlebars on the first of the two days in Rhayader in mid Wales, a smart move to reinforce the bars with socket set extensions, before being able to change them for day 2: well done those men!  We only were only smart enough to have a spare fuel pump in the car when ours failed on the autobahn near Hamburg, we needed ‘outside assistance’ to get off the motorway, to be rescued by ADAC & to get the pump fitted.

Results of Saturday’s North Somerset Club Valley Smokehouse Time Trial, held at Scars Wood, Lulsgate, are attached for the website.

Once again it was Jason Hamblin who took the overall and trials class win, losing just 6 marks on observation. Rising star Ben Sinclair took the runner up spot on 13 marks, with veteran Simon Prideaux not far behind on 16.

As usual at this venue, the rocks and roots took more of a toll in the scrambles class. Andy Frost took a fairly easy class win on 50 marks after Charlie Frost was forced to retire. Gary Newman was second in the class on 72, well clear of Tom Smith on 101.

Jerry ”

Time trial Results from North Somerset MSC’s Fowlers Trophy & Wells & Dist TC’s Lawford TT

Hello all,

we’ve some Results for you, firstly Jerry Walters reports “‘Evening Frank,

Results of North Somerset Club’s Fowlers Trophy Time Trial, held on Wednesday evening 15th June at Hanham Mills are attached here NSMSC Fowlers Trophy T:trial Results 150616 for the website.

Some hasty last minute alterations were made after the english summer weather struck again, turning parts of the course into a skating rink just before the start . However, the course modifications, and drying conditions as the trial progressed, resulted in a low scoring event and surprisingly good track conditions.

Jason Hamblin took the overall premier losing just 2 marks on time. Martin Lawford was also clean on observation and took second spot in the trials class losing 10 on time with Ben Sinclair in third place on 12.

Charlie Frost set ‘standard time’ and lost just 6 marks on observation, which put him in the overall runner up spot. Harvey Dark took second spot in the scrambles class losing 15 marks, with Tom Smith hot on his heels on 18.

Cheers: Jerry

& Martin Lawford  says ”   Frank,  Please find attached results from todays Lawford timed trial at Wookey Hole here Wells Lawford T:trial Results 190616

On a very challenging course with plenty of loose rocks and cambers combined with a wet and greasy field Jason Hamblin took the win.  He was pushed all the way by Jack Blacker who set standard time with Tom Smith having a relatively easy win in the scrambles class.

Regards, Martin”


WWMC: Tanner Trudge Results, NSMSC Valley Smokehouse T/trial Regs available

Here we are [at last] ——  yesterdays West Wilts Tanner Trudge Results   WWMC Tanner Trudge 2016 Results 12-06-16    Judging from numbers of complimentary comments on the day[thank you guys] & subsequent phone calls & mails from you riders, the Trudge lived up to its reputation as the tough event you expect it to be, so WWMC are delighted you thought so. We’re really pleased with your feedback, & once again, thanks to all who helped us, not forgetting Tim with the catering trailer. When you were up at 6oclock on Sunday morning  the Bacon Bap he serves up is a really gourmet feast after the event at one in the afternoon!

The Trudge truly is an event that has earned its reputation with riders who rode it yonks ago & their now adult children wanting (?) or being told they’ve “got to” (?) ride it.

Although we don’t give a Premier Award at the Trudge it was interesting to note Jason Hamblin lost 89 [68obs/21time] to take Best Trials, & Andy Frost who was best Non Trials lost 96 [83obs/13time] so maybe what was laid out for you all suited Trials machines best?

Jerry Walters has sent over NSMSC’s Smokehouse Timed Trials Regs which are here for you: NSMSC Smokehouse Trophy TT Regs & Entry Forms- 020716
