Cotswold Clouds Classic Trial
This year’s event will follow its successful format with many traditional and favourite trials hills. Enthusiasts have competed to climb many of our sections for years, with the earliest reference to The Nailsworth Ladder dating back to 1913, when a W.J. Brunel won a cigarette box for being the first competitor to reach the top riding his Douglas motorcycle. Other sections continue to challenge and please with Crooked Mustard, Merve Swerve, Ham Mill, Wicked Juniper, Highwood and Bull Banks also present.
The nature of the event in conjunction with the work that is carried out to sections ensures that it is well suited to all classes of car, and that damage to any vehicle is likely to be averted.
Our start venue is SKF is just off Junction13 of the M5. The finish is at our club Headquarters, The Crown Inn at Minchinhampton where B&B and hot meals are being provided.
This event is popular on the trialling calendar and has a reputation of being oversubscribed. So, if you wish to compete in this event then please apply as soon as possible and we will do everything possible to ensure you have a run.
