Barham Combine Trial 14th April
14th April 2024
Barham Combine Trial
Well what do you know - it was dry and sunny! A great entry, all hopefully enjoyed the day.
A varied range of sections hopefully challenged many. As a spectator Section 12's final tree seemed to catch a few out!

So I finally manged to get that new camera and this was the first time out and what do you know the pics came out okay!

There's also some more images on the Gallery page under the Phil Hughes Trial

Thanks as always to all the observers, land owners and club members that set up the course.
Road Ride out
So a bit of a disappointing turnout on the day - some unable to make the ride who had planned to do so due to personal circumstances - but those that did make it enjoyed a pleasant ride around the roads and ended up with fish & chips on Ramsgate sea front. Lets hope if another is organised in the future more members can make it!

Lord of Lydden
Held over 21st and 22nd October it pretty much is the last big road race meeting in the South East and never fails to throw up some great racing. Sunday saw a deluge of rain first thing but then weather improved, the track dried out and some great racing in all classes from FAB 50/70cc youth, scooters, classic sidecars plus the usual solo and sidecar classes made a great day out. Shame I couldn't find a programme to put some names to pictures but maybe next time.

Fancy a good read?

We all like a good read don't we? But what to read? Well we have a whole range of books available from Biographies to Encyclopedias. All (well most!) are based on bikes or cars. They are all used but in good condition. 

Click on the book icon below to see what there is and if you fancy one just e-mail with what you'd pay and which book of course, if it's reasonable then the book will be yours. Remember though that we will need to charge postage on any that we post out, but you can always arrange to pick up at the monthly club meeting.

How much do you want to offer - well that's up to you, but the books in Group C are that bit rarer so we will reserve the right to turn down silly offers!!

The good bit is that 50% of the proceeds of any sale will come to the club while the other 50% will go to a Dementia charity.

So what are you waiting for

Frittenden Flyer
Held at the Sandhurst Bridge Farm, Frittenden Sept 25th
A great days racing on the Sunday with Barham members Dave Mears and Derrick Keyes flying the flag in the 350 and upright classes respectively. Weather was kind and a good crowd enjoyed some good action. If you haven't been to grasstrack before - it's fast and it's furious and how many events can you go to where you get 50 races in a single afternoon!

And now for something completely different!
These days we're all use to having our digital cameras and smartphones, able to take super sharp images and videos at the drop of a hat but in the days before the smartphone it was a little different to say the least!
