On Sunday 28th October, Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC are hosting ‘The Hallamshire Trial’ which is the final round of the ACU Normandale Masters Championship.
Originally this trial was due to be a resurrection of the Peak Trial which has been a round of the ACU Solo, Sidecar and Novogar (now S3) championships but the club have encountered land access issues at the last minute forcing the tough decision of whether to cancel or not.
The enthusiastic bunch at S&H don’t give up that easily though and after some stress and many phone calls and emails to landowners, Richard and Mark Timperley have managed to create a completely brand new 2 lap road based trial which is now centred in the small village of Barlow which is approximately 3 miles from Chesterfield and lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park so offers easy access for everybody.
The route is being finalised as you read this and it is looking like a 5 or so mile lap with 20 traditional sections so causes no fuelling issues as the last sections are at the start. Some sections may be familiar to some riders but the majority will be new and the potential for this trial going forward is massive as land is becoming available to us.
The usual Normandale classes are all catered for and there will also be a Clubman A & B class and Expert route for any non-championship riders.
The start venue offers a hard standing car park, on site café which will be serving food all day and permanent toilet facilities.
The start time is a bright and breezy 9:00 am for the first riders to ensure the best is made of the daylight available. The clocks go back the night before so everybody gets an extra hour in bed anyway!
Entries are now open via the ACU Online Entry system and close at midnight on 22/10/18. Please direct any further enquiries to Richard Timperley on 07545 468341 or via email: email@example.com

There’s a couple of roads closed in the general area of the trial tomorrow. The Buxton Congleton road and Bryons Lane in Macclesfield. So please give yourself a little more time to get to the trial. The closure of the Buxton Congleton road will only affect those coming from Buxton and the Byrons Lane diversions is easy to follow . The venue will be signed from the Buxton Congleton road but with orange arrows not our normal sign . Some toe rag nicked the sign at the last trial
