The following excerpts come from the MCC’s Standing Supplementary Regulations.
The Club’s Triple Award will be presented to any MCC member who achieves a Gold medal award in an Exeter, Land’s End, and Edinburgh trial run consecutively.
To achieve a Triple award, the winner will have travelled some 1500 miles, attempted about 40 observed sections and not put a foot wrong once.
In a good year for the Club, there will be a handful of Triples awarded, probably no more than three or four.
In a good year for the competitors this number may creep into double figures.
The current Triple Award is a signpost with arms pointing to the three destinations of Exeter, Lands End, and Edinburgh, but the Award has taken other forms in the past.
Baddeley Championship Awards
“Two awards (one Motorcycle and one Car) are given for the best performance by a MCC member in the Exeter, Lands End and Edinburgh Trials in the same season, calculated from the Final Official Results for each season. To be eligible a competitor must be classed as a finisher in all three events.”
Winning one of the Baddeley awards is generally considered as the icing on the Triple cake, although they are given – for the two best performances – irrespective of whether the winners have also achieved Triple Awards.
“This award will be presented to any competitor in Class 0 who achieves a Class 0 award in the Exeter, Lands End, and Edinburgh trials in the same season.”
Team Championship Awards
“Three awards are given to the teams composed of MCC members having the best aggregate performance calculated on the Final Official results of each event, in the Exeter, Lands End, and Edinburgh trials in the season, in the Motorcycle classes, Car classes and Mixed classes respectively. Team drivers must remain the same for all three events, but a change of vehicle is permitted. To be eligible a team must finish complete in all three events.”
British Motorcycle Award
“This Award is to be presented for the best performance by a competitor riding a solo motorcycle or sidecar outfit of British manufacture.(i.e. engine and frame). in the three Classic Trials. A different machine/outfit may be used during the series providing it complies with the above. The award will be based on the final official results for each event. In the event of the winner of the award also being the winner of the Baddeley Award the award will go to the next best British motorcycle.”
South Somerset Riders Cup
“This award will be presented for the best performance by a competitor riding a solo motorcycle in Standard Road Tyre Class, in the three classic trials. The award will be based on the final official results for each event. To be eligible a competitor must be classed as a finisher in each event. In the event of the winner also being the winner of the Baddeley Award the award will go to the next best competitor in Standard Road Tyre Class.”
