Welcome to the home of The Motor Cycling Club

Founded in 1901, we're Britain’s oldest sporting motor club for motorcycles and cars

Founded in 1901, the Motor Cycling Club is one of the very oldest clubs for the sporting motorist. We have over 1000 loyal and enthusiastic members who enjoy our own particular style of motor sport on two, three, or four wheels. 

We are known mainly for our three great long distance classic reliability trials; the Exeter Trial (held in early January), the Lands End Trial (held at Easter), and the Edinburgh Trial (held in early October). These have all been run since the first decade of the last century with the essential character unchanged and entries still numbered in the hundreds.

The Land’s End Classic Road Trial
19th/20th April 2019

Here is what Class R is all about.

Class R has evolved out of our main trial into a competitive event that stays on asphalt apart from 2 timed tests on private well-surfaced ground. Any vehicle can enter apart from 4WD or commercials (at the Clerk of the Course’s discretion) but must be road legal. The only extra items that need to be carried are a spill kit and a 1.75 litre fire extinguisher in cars or threewheelers. Motorcycles and cars are welcomed. There is no need for special tyres or a towrope nor for a rally-style trip meter. It will run at the same time and over much the same route as our famous Land’s End Trial. A comprehensive route book is provided in advance.

Typically, you will start at one minute intervals at one of the main trial starts at 7.30pm on Good Friday. You will converge with other competitors at Bridgwater in Somerset later that evening. After scrutineering and an hour’s rest halt, you will set off with the idea of keeping to scheduled time throughout the official route. The route is not marked on the road, but is easily followed via the route book. The average speed needed is variable but overall is about 20mph. You must be no minutes early and no more than 10 minutes late at any of the 8 time controls to qualify for a First Class award. In addition, there are 7 observed sections on tarmac where you may be required to stop and restart at certain points. There are also 7 route boards to find and note down. These too must be correctly carried out to win that coveted first class award. There are 2 further rest halts en route with a total mileage of over 370 miles. You will finish in Hayle, Cornwall about 3pm on Easter Saturday.
