Of course it’s only my opinion, but the Mendip Vale Traders Trophy is one of, if not the highlight, of the Wessex Trials Calendar.
Just had a message from Rob Pike, who says
Good Afternoon Frank,
Thanks for putting the Traders regs on the web site, can you also point out please that we are planning a 2 lap event with 20 sections per lap as we’ve done in the past at Belmont and Shipham.
Obviously these sections will need to be manned so we are looking for as many willing observers as possible to make the Traders as good a day out as it has always been.
As a way to try and encourage the riders to bring along an observer we are offering a free entry to our next club trial at the end of April
I have to say I did wonder how the guys were going to put on an event worthy of the Traders at this new [for the Traders] venue. So now I’m reassured that it will be of the usual quality. Look forward to seeing you all at Frys’ Bottom.
Jerry Walters has sent through the Results of North Somersets’ Timed Trial held on Sunday, find them NSMSC Wynnes Trophy Timed Trial Results 11th March 2012 here. Interesting result, Pete King was the winner losing 14 – including two on time whereas R/Up Jason Hamblin was lost none on time but was taken for 15 on observation. I see that Andy Scrivens & Martin Lawford were both in action taking time out from Sidecar Observation Trials. Jerry Cross & Andy Frost were getting in some practice before the SSDT, Quite a lot of names I know & recognise including Steve Bather , Luke & Alan Stringer & some I don’t like Mark Copeland & Callum Hacker among an entry of 57. More power to the Clubs elbow!
See you soon: Frank
