  1. THE TONG TRIAL GP IS POSTPONED UNTIL JULY 2021 DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 PANDEMIC we had an option to try run in October but we have taken the decision start again next year in July at tong with a 2 day event , . thank you to our sponsors and the trade who backed the event and to the spectators who bought tickets , TICKET REFUNDS WILL COMENCE FROM 7 JUNE Stay safe and we will see you next year john kerwin Dirtbike Action
  2. Hello all , anyone wanting to observe at Tong for the British Trial GP over the weekend of the 10/11/12 July could they please get in touch with john kerwin either by e mail krwnmt@aol.com or by phone/text 07557665647
  3. Homologation of the venue took place last Tuesday in preparation for this years British Trial GP when Josep Punti of the FIM met the organising team on site . this years event is a 3 day event , qualifying and practice on Friday 10 July , with 2 full days of trial competition on Saturday 11 July and Sunday 12 July . There will be a host of other activities running along side the Trial GP Friday evening there will be a Twinshock trial , Saturday evening the largest gathering of Oset competitors as the youngster get there chance to compete in a special round of the Oset cup, commitment from the trade has been fantastic , with Wulfsport and Oset sharing the event title , we will have a least one Trials try out area from inch perfect trials , a big trade village with bikes and goodies on sale . Now is your chance to purchase discounted tickets and book camping , there is up to 25% off tickets go to www.worldtrial2020.com as save £££ we have a limited number of VIP tickets for sale which offers VIP parking adjacent to the podium and final section , marquee with café and private viewing area of the final section ,
  4. we could have brought the world trial back to tong for 2019 but the 1 day format is not viable in this country unless a very generous sponsor would like to make a large contribution to the costs , the trial this year is being run on last years format requires a 10.000 euro payment to the FIM 5000 euro solidarity fund and 5000 timing and podium that's before you start with the other costs, which on a one day event would be impossible to cover. hopefully a 2020 GB trial will be 2 days and we can return to sustainability .
  5. 2 adults 2 kids can come and watch the best trials riders in the world for 50 quid for a day if you buy your tickets before may, parking is free , most of you need a big reality check the cost of the trial is massive and unlike Europe where the local government will pick up the cost , nothing is given in this country by local government , all we get from local government is advice how to spend more money on road traffic management to the site etc, the trial costs 50k ish to run plus all the time and meetings . The reality is because trials is so cheap to enter everything has to be based on that , meanwhile in the real world entry fee's for mountain bike events are £40 quid or more , even running races are much more than trials 50 QUID FOR 2 ADULTs AND 2 KIDS IS A MEGA DEAL AND AROUND THE SAME PRICE AS 2 ADULTS AND 2 KIDS RIDING A TRIAL
  6. we have looked far an wide for another venue but its very hard to meet the standards required from the FIM trial work book , I live minutes from pateley and It won't work, the bikes are barely legal these days and meeting the health and safety requirements would be a nightmare, even the BEC events have dropped any road work after the police issued fines and points at lossiemouth back in april, unless some great sponsor comes along and wants to chuck in 40k only a closed venue can provide a world trial in the uk
