LNCMC October News

Welcome to the October news, all of a sudden the weather seems to have changed from a sunny September to blustery wet October, but many people will not be too unhappy with that with various trials looming upon us it will make the hills a little more interesting. We recently held the David Ayers sporting trial and thanks to Mike Wevill for the report below.
 
DAVID AYERS SPORTING CAR TRIAL at Marshgate, Camelford.
 
Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club held a MSA and BTRDA National Championship Trial at Marshgate on 16 September as part of the Cornish Trials weekend.
 
Competitors came from as far afield as Yorkshire and Kent. Whilst the entry was relatively low it did include two former British champions.
There was a mixture of grass and woodland over 21 hills on steep but firm dryish ground.
 
Low scores were the order of the day on a closely contested event.
Eventual winner was John Fack who managed to beat his twin brother Jerome by just 1-point double driving the same car.
 
Local man Alan Murton was close behind to manage a superb joint third place. Alan’s performance was even more impressive given that he had to work on the car until midnight the night before having to rebuild the front end which had been wrecked in the previous day’s trial. M W
 
Our next event is the Tamar Classic Road Trial, entries are already coming in and with a re-vamped route and start venue it has all the promise of a very good event. Signing on will be at Tresmeer Village Hall where the hall volunteers will have arrived at 6.00 am to prepare breakfast for all the competitors, so eat well, but please make sure you thank them, or they will be blaming me for a loss of sleep and grumpy customers. The event requires a large amount of marshals and it would be really appreciated if any volunteers could phone Mike Wevill 01566 784451 It would help to make his life just a little easier.( I would have enclosed his e mail address but he can never remember it).
 
On the 27th of December we hold our Ron Beer Sporting Trial at Harrowbarrow near Callington, it will give you a chance to get out in the fresh air and blow away the Christmas cobwebs, again marshals needed please.
 
I recently passengered for the first time on a Sporting Trial, I was Mike Wevill’s passenger on the Robin Alexander Trial, a very enjoyable day although at my age I have to admit to not being quite as adept at rolling around the car in strange positions which included getting far too close to Mike, neither he or I have mentioned anything of it since.
 
To all intents and purposes I have the Dellow ready for the long haul to Derbyshire for the MCC Edinburgh Trial this weekend, I always look forward to this event with the beautiful Derbyshire countryside and to be able to spend some time with my granddaughter who is lucky enough to live in the heart of the Peak district.
 
This newsletter is for you people out there, so feel free to contribute even if it is just for a sale or want it helps to fill the page. Keep an eye out for a certain black Ford Pop, the ex Caudle / Turner machine is in new hands and they promise to get it out on the hills and not just polish it.
