The Manx Trials Club organises and promotes motorcycle trials in the Isle of Man for solo and sidecar machines for all abilities, with the emphasis being on the enjoyment of the sport. Events are held throughout the year for modern and classic twinshock machinery.
We are reliant on the continued generosity of landowners for providing access to the fantastic trials areas we have on the island and wish to express our thanks to them along with our loyal observers who regularly give up their time.
Our premier event is the Manx International Classic Trial which has become a key element of the Festival of Motorcycling and attracts riders from all over the world to ride our classic sections and enjoy the beautiful scenery of our island.
CHANGE OF START/SIGN-ON LOCATION
Our next event will be the third round of the 2019 Azzy Paints Twinshock series and will be one of our popular runaround events starting from David Crowe Plant Hire Yard on Good Friday April 19th. Signing on will be at 9.30am for a 10.00am start. Entrance to the start/sign on will be signposted from the Eairy Dam to Stoney Mountain Plantation road.
Please do not park on the Stoney Mountain Quarry entrance road as the Quarry will be open and working.
The route is a relatively short loop but will include use of public highways and therefore children & youth riders not holding a valid licence will not be able to enter.
There will be the usual hard and easy routes with classes for Pre 65, Twinshock & Air Cooled Mono machines and a guest class for modern bikes.
Following difficulties with observer boards during recent years the Event Committee have again decided to utilise the punch card system for recording riders scores as used for last year’s event.
To ensure this does not cause delays to the flow of riders through each section we are looking to position an Observer’s Assistant at the end of each Section to punch the rider’s card to record the score advised by the Observer.
Should anyone wish to help in this capacity or as an Official Observer and get involved with this International Event, and who could spare a few hours on either or both days of the Trial, could they contact our Chief Marshal Ian Gribble by e-mail email@example.com
Everyone is welcome - No previous experience or in-depth knowledge of trials scoring is required.
