Middle England club goes long distance

Thanks to their ever-present energy and enthusiasm, the Middle England Classic Vehicle Club are expanding their programme of events for 2019.

Pleased with the feedback that their Durham Dales LDT had received, last year they also ran a bike-only LDT and, thanks to its success, the MECVC are adding a third long distance trial. All three will count towards their new annual LDT championship with all entrants automatically included. Each round will use some different sections.

It’s not all about bike control and reliability – beautiful scenery also plays a large part!

The dates arranged so far are The Durham Dales LDT on March 10, starting near Stanhope, and the MECVC Bike-Only on July 14, again starting in Weardale. The date for the third event hasn’t been set yet, but will probably be in October.
