We must be very spoilt / lucky here, I wouldn't drive 5 miles for that. 

I seem to remember enjoying the occasional six lapper in the NE Centre in the Seventies.  Is my memory playing tricks?

That will have been the Little Bear time and observation trial. Can't think of any other six lap trials in north east unless you mean north east Scotland?

Pickering DMC Trials are still six laps of 11 sections generally....................it's an endurance feat, especially when the flags are pulled at 2.30pm and start time is 11am !!

No, the NE Centre and I never did the Little Bear.  Might have been at Woodburn (west of the A68).

It's a European trials thread and we are discussing trials in Northumberland but I'm interested 😁. I think it might have been ridsdale perhaps ? Not the best course just rocky outcrop, quite a short lap. Monkridge farm near otterburn isn't far away but that's east of a68 and was a cracking trial but only four laps. It was run by Bedlington clubs land and their schoolboy series used to be two trials per day morning then separate course in the afternoon. Happy days
