Long distance in the Dales

The Middle England Classic Vehicle Club’s Durham Dales Long Distance Trial was run on March 15 and, with that timing, proved to be one of the last events before the big coronavirus shutdown.

It was run in good weather and the rivers had subsided to a reasonable level, allowing the whole entry to enjoy a good day’s fun.

While currently there are no events being run, the organisers hope that there can be two more bike-only LDTs this year, both on a Saturday – July 18 and October 10.

Being realistic, it may not be possible for the July one to be run, so all entries received for it will automatically be carried over to October, by which time everyone is hopeful that the crisis will be over…

So be sure to put both dates in your diaries; you may get two events but there should be one at the very least.

Regulations (with an entry form) for the July event are available from the club’s website (at www.mecvc.org.uk) and Facebook page (search for M-ECVC Middle England Classic Vehicle Club), or email Graham Lampkin at [email protected] – you can be confident and send it in sooner rather than later.

If you have any concerns, look at the positive comments that entrants put on the Facebook page about the March event, and there are plenty of pictures as well!
