Amandas final meeting was down in cider drinking country! With a 5 hour drive to get there you do want to have a good day.
So exploding your clutch through the casing isn’t ideal, but with fine work from her pit crew (Tim!) The clutch was reassembled and the remnants of the casing stitched back together using Duct tape she finished the meeting and the season with a running bike and put in a best time of 16.648 secs with a speed of 82.79mph
Want to have a go at 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 drop us a mail by clicking here and give us your contact details, we’ll get back to you to as quickly as we can.
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!
Are you competing under the Barham banner?

So please if your competing and have a couple of pictures of said action, please send a copy to us at email@example.com, with name, and what the event was and date. (Can be past or present) -
The next Adult & Youth Practice date will be announced soon.
All members welcome Contact Barham and District MCC Training officer Tim Taylor on 07725988775 or Mark Ridge for further details.

As always a big thank you to the landowners for allowing us the use of the ground for all our events
Barham Club Practice
Note that for all future trials the links on this site will take you to the ACU online entry page rather than a printable entry
So our last Combine Trial had a low turnout and a couple of weeks previously the turn out was even lower for that Combine Trial. Are the lower numbers due to other events being on at the same time, the thought of turning out if the weather is bad? We’d really like to hear your views -
On a similar note while there are many members who enjoy riding in these events why is it that it’s always the same few who turn out to get sections ready, and ensure that there is an event for all to enjoy. Remember one day these guys and gals may decide that they’ve had enough!
So why not come along and get involved with your local club.

Folkestone Charity Trial
Mutton Lancers Trial
Some great weather for the day bought 60+ riders out to the Mutton Lancers Trial. Sections were as always tricky with some proving trickier than others. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the day.
Thanks to all the observers as always as well as the land owners for allowing us to use it and all those who give up their time freely to clear out sections etc. It is greatly appreciated.
Finally a thank you to BRM Catering for coming along and providing refreshments
THE RESULTS ARE AVAILABLE NOW UNDER “EVENTS” TAB

Folkestone Charity Trial
We (Folkestone Trials Club) have kind permission from the landowners at Bigbury Woods to run a Charity/Fun trial on Sunday 5th Jan 2020.
Many will have seen the news reports about the tragic death of Gavin Horley's son William in 2018 from a Tramadol overdose, and the Trial will help raise funds for a charity which has been set up in William's name at the City Boxing Amateur Boxing Club in Canterbury, that will allow underprivileged young people who lack the funds to pursue the sport to take part in it.
We will run the trial under the AMCA with *entry on the day*, and being a fun event there will be no observers or awards, but riders can of course mark each other if they chose.
We will provide food and a BBQ within the entry fee -
By keeping the fee low, we hope that riders can make an additional charity donation on the day if they wish. Folkestone Club will also donate.
Car parking will be from the Bigbury Road, and due to limited parking space this Trial is open ONLY to current members of Folkestone and Barham clubs. (Or to a very few that the landowners might chose to invite).
A summary of this will be published on our website and as an 'event' on our public Facebook page. That helps us determine likely numbers, not least for the BBQ food.
(Being an AMCA event, this will not appear in the TSM).
