British Solo Championship - Weston Trophy Trial Print E-mail

For the first time, Witley MCC has hosted a round of the British Trials Championship.

This landmark occasion took place on Sunday 22nd March at Butser Limeworks near Petersfield, scene of the British round of the World Championship in 1988 when Steve Saunders famously rode to victory.

A challenging course of 12 sections, to be ridden three times, had been laid out for the occasion by Clerk of the Course Neil Bowker, assisted as usual by Terry Tidbury but also by Steve Saunders himself.

The weather was kind, so the potential for this venue to turn into something more suitable for ice speedway was averted! However, inevitably the level of difficulty of this national event did leave some of the Expert support class struggling and this was demonstrated by some painful incidents, a few long faces and 16 retirements from a field of 82 starters. Sections 5 and 8 in particular took almost a full house of marks off the elite class, and although each was conquered, it was only with the liberal use of feet. The Youth A riders also found the going hard for the 125s.

Vines Evening Print E-mail

Witley MCC were among the club and trade organisations invited to take part in an open Evening at Vines BMW in Slyfield Green, Guildford on 21st January.

A number of clubs including Odiham MCC and various trade stands took part. Witley’s appearance was coordinated by Bernard and Diana, with members including Graham Ingall, Graham Ford, Derek Prior and Laurie & Jane Richards also in attendance.

Our presence included the regular display panels and various literature and giveaways. More importantly, a good turnout of members meant that we were able to get involved in conversation with other visitors and promote the Club in a very positive light – and still have time to check out the other exhibitors and eat hot dogs and pretzels! the whole event was seen as a worthwhile way to keep the Club’s profile in the limelight and maintain our longstanding relationship with Vines.
