We currently organise around 29 trials every year, with competitive classes for all types of British bikes from pre-unit rigid and girders to unit twins. Our trials feature eased clubman/rigid routes to suit all standards of rider where appropriate.
A further 'Gentleman's Route' is to be introduced for 2022 on a white flagged route to be called Class W in both the Championship and Pre-unit events. The sections will be designed for beginners and senior riders looking for easier sections and a less taxing day's riding.
A series run over 10 rounds with competitive classes for both unit and pre-unit machines,
There are 4 routes. Premier (hardest) for classes A, D, E, F, G and S. - Intermediate (medium) for class i -
Clubman (easier) for B, C, J, K, K/S, T, V and the new Class W. Classes of vehicles are set out on the 'Rules' page.

The Captain's Trial
Staged entirely on private land on the historic Castle Carr Estate, a former hunting estate with a faux castle and water gardens. The terrain offers a superb mixture of steep wooded hill sides, rocky gullies and stream sections spread across a wide area.
