Sunday 22nd August 2021, Hassockrigg Trial (2)

After the success of our first event back in May, we pay another quick visit.

Back by popular demand, similar sections as previously, although to add to the excitement, we will be running on the back of the Comp Safari being held on site the day before!!!

Sunday 16th May 2021 – Hassockrigg, Shotts, North Lanarkshire, ML7 5TG

If you wish to participate in an event you will have to register and pay online, with an electronic signing on declaration submitted before the event.

Social distancing must be adhered to at all times, including during the drivers briefing, scrutineering, walking the courses, and at lunchtime.

Largo TYRO & Trials – 17th July 2021

We move this month to our site at Largo, which is a massive hit with everyone that attends, offering some breathtaking scenery whether it’s over the Fife countryside or out onto the Firth of Forth. With 3 completely different areas on the site ; “valley” “ski-slope” and “plateau”, we are able to offer you a good range of challenging sections throughout the day, usually finishing off with a trip to the trig point for a photo opportunity.

Slightly different from our usual Trials event, where this time we will also be running a TYRO, so this is an opportunity to bring along the other half who’s interested in trying the off-roading out, but too scared to go over any of the ‘scary stuff’, or for those with a new shiny ‘showroom’ vehicle. They are also suitable for drivers from 13yrs+ so long as they are accompanied by a fully licenced driver.

To find out what our trials consist of and to help you decide which one you may be better suited to , please visit these pages below or get in touch!

Simple Checklist

Law is an interesting site, with lots of different nooks and crannies to hide the punches in. The site is suitable for all types of 4×4, however it does favour something with at least AT tyres on, as the ground can be soft in places, especially as the cattle have only recently been evicted.

On the day, there will be code boards set out around the site. These will be a single letter and a number. You will be given a card at the start of the day, and for each code you find, you should write this into the corresponding box on the card.

This event is open to all types of 4×4, however a full driving licence must be held by the driver.

Treasure Hunts are a great day out for everyone, as it allows a bit more freedom over the ground than Trials., and is generally a lot muddier, however speed should be kept to 10mph MAXIMUM and seatbelts must be worn at all times.

Cost – £30 per vehicle

Time – 09.30 signing on and scrutineering
10.00 ready to go hunting.

Lunch – Bring your own packed lunch and warm drink

Finish – We generally finish mid-afternoon depending on weather and light conditions.

Directions – ML8 5HQ is the nearest postcode, situated on the B7011, which is accessed from either the A71 or A73. Orange arrows will be situated on the B7011 at the site entrance – please make sure sure to close any gates after you have entered the site. OS Grid Ref is: NS 80950 51868.

Motorsport Restart Looks Promising

It seems like an eternity since I last wrote to let you know about an event…

 

At last night’s committee meeting, it was decided now was the right time to look at restarting our events.

There have already been quite a few events over the border, and although the announcement today on easing of travel restrictions brings good news, it is as yet unclear whether this will mean we can gather for an organised event such as motorsport.

So, with all the will in the world, and as soon as we have approval from both Motorsport UK and the Scottish Executive, we will confirm more details.

 

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY (PROVISIONAL)

Sunday 16th May – TRIAL (RTV) – Central Belt.

  • Our first event back, easing us all in gently to a trial – (RTV Trials)
  • FULL LICENCE HOLDERS ONLY can drive at this event.
  • We’re sure you will love this site!!!

 

Following on from that, we plan to run a Treasure Hunt, on a date in June to be confirmed.

 

 

Hopefully, we will see you soon!

E.G.M

Thursday 14th January 2020 @ 19.30hrs, we will be holding a virtual E.G.M.

*Note this is an E.G.M rather than an A.G.M*

To specifically allow us to update and modify our Memorandum and Articles of Association, as well as our Rules & Conditions of Club Membership.

All current members should have received a joining link via e-mail.

If you’ve not received a link, and are eligible to join the meeting and vote, then please get in touch with us at scotorc@gmail.com
