The famous Beamish Trophy Trial is now organised by South Durham Vintage Motorcycle Club who took over from us in 2008.
The trial covers nearly 100 miles of Northern Dales in Durham, Cumbria and Northumberland and is a road-based event which has a number of off-road sections. It is a quite unique event and is almost unparalleled in this country. Entrants can cover all of the route and sections on road going machines, although there are many off-road machines entered.
The regulations and entry forms are usually made available from late-Feb and enquiries can be made to the event organiser on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every entrant receives a badge. A date bar is also awarded to every starter.
The start and finish is at The New Board Inn, Hilltop, Esh, County Durham. The organisers are indebted to the management for allowing the use of their excellent facilities.
Entrants come from all over Britain, with some travelling great distances to participate. England, Wales, Scotland are well represented but we still await our first entrant from Ireland.
There are over twenty class awards available. Entrants knowledge of motoring history and highway code is tested along the route.
