  1. The Airedale & Pennine Motor Car Club Ltd are promoting the Yorkshire Dales Classic Trial on the 7th May. Starting and finishing in Pateley Bridge the long distance trial caters for cars and motorcycles and utilises some famous old venues in the Dales, like Watergate, used in the early days of the Scott trial. The event attracts enthusiasts from the whole of Britain much in the way of the old Exeter and Lands End trials in years gone by. Attached are regs and entry forms in pdf format as well as a Map of the route. The photograph is of Celia Walton, winner of her class last year, photographed by Barry Robinson A4 Map 2017 revised.pdf YDCT2017 Entry Form MOTORCYCLES.pdf YDCT2017 Entry Form CARS.pdf YDCT2017 Regs MOTORCYCLES.pdf YDCT2017 Regs CARS.pdf

  3. Several contacts recently have queried the fact that I am constantly improving the scope of ORRe by introducing additional features on as many of the classic offroad motorcycle sports as I can gain permission from the copyright holders to use their photographs - even though I have held copies of the images in my archive for many years. The main query stems from fear that I am 'diluting' the content of their favourite trials coverage by including the classic scrambling, racing, hillclimbs, grass track, sprints, long distance trials, etc. This is definitely not the case because the prime reason that I opted for the digital format is that the cost limitations of paper, printing and postage are vanquished at a stroke, so I don't need advertising to support those costs, but more importantly when the magazine started it was typically fifty pages, these days it is tending towards a regular hundred to hundred and ten pages........... But more than that, rather than suffer the cost risks of reprinting the books that I published, I am now serialising them all in the magazine, but not just a digital copy of the printed versions, but I am including a lot of extra photographs that were taken at the time, but not included because of the price - so the digital version of, for example, 'Lochaber Rich Mixture' is close to twice the size of the printed version....... Enjoy.
  4. There is a fully illustrated feature on long track racing in the next issue of our digital magazine. To whet potential apppetites here is a long track image, never published before, of Brian Bagshaw from Flint, racing his Weslake at Nun Monkton (York Stadium) in 1986.

  9. Hi John, Noticed your earlier comment about the glove and wondered why, so delved through the pile of negatives in the archive and found this shot - don't know whether it was earlier or later in the event - but checked some more shots of Tony and found he did normally wear gloves on both hands. Enjoy
