Middle England’s trials review

Looking back on a good first year of their championship, in spite of cancelling an event, the Middle England Classic Vehicle Club is keener than ever.

Congratulations to the class winners:

Class A (Rigids) Steve Kingston 8pts
Class B (Twinshocks) Andy Hesketh 6pts
Class C (Monoshocks) Lee Abbott 8pts


The championship will be limited to MECVC events only for 2020.

The volunteer marshals/observers will be encouraged to commit to the events.

Instead of a free meal they will be given £10 towards their expenses if they do one section in the morning, moving on to another in the afternoon.


A great day out watching and marking the entrants in the fresh air of Weardale, Cumbria and Northumbria – who can resist?

In the past the club have also provided the entrants with a free meal.

‘Steady as she goes’ is the drill for water crossings.

Next year the club will instead try to organise refreshments and a meal to be available as an option for them to buy when they enter. This will give the entrants more choice and reduce the entry fee.


A further reduction will be the charity donation. This again will not be in the entrance fee but an option on the entry form.
