We hope that you find the website easy to use.
We’ve put most information under the buttons on the left. But if you’re looking for an entry form for the latest Barham Trial, the riders list or results from the last event then use the buttons directly below
Fancy being an observer?
Would you like to have a go at observing, or helping to at one of our Trials?
You don’t need to be a club member but if you’d like to have a go and help make the days possible, simply click on the link and complete the short form.
If you’ve never done it before don’t worry, we can team you up with an experienced observer to show you the ropes and make sure you’re comfortable with the rules.
We can’t guarantee that there would always be a section available to observe but you would be contacted before an event to see if you’d like to observe. Go on you know you want to!

Cause for thought?
As many of you know motorcycle theft is reaching epedemic proportions -
Did you know that in the 12 months to March 2017 over 16000 motorcycles were stolen from London alone?
Thieves are now using cheap tracking devices which they attach to the bike and can then trace it at their leisure. So it would be easy for any ne’er do well to deploy the same technology on your van/trailer while it’s unattended -
Next Barham Club Meeting will be 19/04/2018
At The Black Robin Valley Road Kingston CT4 6HS
Committee start 7:30, General meet 8:00pm onwards
UPDATE Buffet & Awards Presentation January 12th 2018
Quite some time was spent at the last committee meeting discussing the buffet (or lack of it!) And what needs to be done to address the problem in the future.
So firstly apologies to those who were short changed on the food front.
Moving forward we are already planning for Xmas 2018 and there are several ideas being looked at, to ensure that there is plenty of space and food for everyone.
It is likely that we will be looking at a larger venue possibly more central so that it’s easier for everyone to reach.
With a membership of over 100 we should be able to arrange something that many more people would enjoy coming to…so watch this space for further updates.If you have a suggestion that you’d like to submit, such as alternative venue, food, entertainment etc then please feel free to mail the suggestion to email@example.com.
After all this is YOUR club

Monday April 16th A date for your diary?
So what’s it all about? Well club member Eddie Mears is giving a talk to the local Barham Historical Society at 7:30 at the Barham Village Hall. The talk is on the history of our club.
As one of the oldest clubs in the South East there are plenty of stories of interest in there.
So why not pop along on Monday night to give Eddie some support and quite possibly learn a little bit more about the history of Barham Motorcycle Club.

Get Well Soon
Some of you may already know, but for those of you who don’t our club Youth Officer and committee stalwart Tim Taylor recently suffered a heart attack. We all wish him well and hope he makes a speedy recovery. We also send our best wishes to his family, Amanda, Ben and Ronny at this testing time.
Phil Hughes Combine Trial
Well after a night of rain it was certainly a bit on the greasy and slippy side but hopefully everyone enjoyed the day. A big thank you as always to the observers for giving up their time and to the landowner for the use of the ground. The marks have been counted and provisional results are now available from the”Results” button
