Triple D Motosport Astley Cup Trial
Sunday 17th June 2012
This is a open trial which will now start at Cartmel Racecourse, but run some of the original route. This is the first time here for this event and we hope to use the best of the land we used for the old Sammy Miller round as well as the good bits of the Astley that was when it started from Witherslack. The first rider is away at 10-00am. This is a PRE ENTRY event with entries closing on Monday 11th June or when full, entry limit is 120. The route will be one lap of about 35 sections, with a mixture of Rocks, Streams and Mud. There will be 3 courses Hard, Green and Easy, a legal fuel can maybe required. The entry will open in May for this very popular event, don't be disappointed, enter as soon as the regs are available to avoid disappointment. Martha will be in attendance all day with his usual hot and cold food and refreshment service. Secretary: Margaret Brown 16 Hayfell Rise Kendal Cumbria LA9 7JP 07798 763606.
