there is no class A on Derbyshire class. 

Derbyshire competitors can attempt any hills their vehicle is qualified to if  your vehicle doesnt qualify or if you simply dont fancy the challenge there is an alternative.. 

eg   class A qualifoed vehicles would do corkscrew but on the derbyshire the rider of such a machine can choose corkscrew or brand top whilst the rider of a class E doesnt have the choice they could only do brand top

Derbyshire is about access giving competitors a ride out on an MCC trial to either test themseleves or their vehicle. there will be awards though so make the right choices on the day..

change your entry smartish though.. although changing after the closing date will be a real headache for the organisers as your number will change and the way you get your road book etc etc

Mark, so what hills will the derbyshire class A do? or should I say what do they miss out on over the main trial class A.?

im tempted to switch to this having read your other posts and seen that there are a number of class A guys in that group.

im a bit nervous about this enfield im building. it will be close to the wire for me getting it finished in time, so it will be largely untested.

if its going to break down id rather have done a few hills first. nothing worse that it breaking down on the ride to Carsington.  ::)

Is it going to be a tarmac only event, or run on the lines of the current events with off road sections?
If it's the former, then it could start and finish anywhere, if the latter, then finding new sections en route from a London start might be too much to ask.
I'm biased as I live in the SW, but London to Land's End and back would appeal.
Brooklands might be a good start and finish point?
Finding marshals mid week sounds tricky.

You might want to make this change before Saturday night.    When the entry fee goes up, any changes of entry include a check to see if the change involves any additional fee, and the system will see that you only paid 65 against an entry fee of 80 and will want to take 15 off you!

Edinburgh / LAST CALL FOR EARLY BIRD ENTRIES Edinburgh Trial 5th October
« Last post by Mark Gregg on August 14, 2019, 10:47:49 pm »
Discounted entries close on the 17th so raid the piggy bank of the 65 and get that entry in!  We already have more entries than last year and class R is almost a sell out!

Entries will stay open until the end of the month but at 85 and you ll forego the honour of been named in the programme.

To tempt have we mentioned NO restarts for class 1 ( FWD) class 2 (vintageish) or class E ( sidecars) and only 1 tarmac hill start for class O

For those up for a challenge Corkscrew is ripe this year Litton Slack is verdant and now well drained and the rough edges have been blunted on Excelsior.  The rocks and roots of Dudwood 2 have been avoided and ALL sections will be straight through for successful climbs, we ve a new route through cliff quarry more fully heated accommodation at the Duke of York for breakfast, The last chance to climb Incline in its current configuration ( all those trees are been cut down :( ) and if all that isnt enough to tempt you did I mention the Ladies at Hollinsclough village hall are planning the biggest cake bake ever!

Entries for the daylight only sections Derbyshire class starting and finishing at the Duke of York,  Pomeroy will stay open until the very last minute for cars and bikes, Derbyshire daylight class is aimed fairly and squarely at older/younger/novices/returners/unsuitable machinery/ competitive vehicles/members and nonmembers If you fill tick any of those boxes then what better way to spend an Autumnal Saturday in The Peak District and all for 50. no restarts in this class and you get a shot at Corkscrew and Litton Slack if you and your vehicle are up to it! 

NEW  easy to use online entry forms for the daylight Derbyshire class available from  edinburghtrial@themotorcyclingclub.org.uk

that sounds so good I may do it myself if im free that weekend ;)
