Info

Update: Yes, we know the scoring methods are loaded towards more frequent rides rather than fastest but this is what we have for this year (Just think yourselves lucky Roger Holland hasn't had time to join yet this year!)

Facebook - there is a closed group frequented by some of the combatants. Try this link. NB: You do not 'have' to join this group, we will try to keep you up to speed on this public page where information about the championship should be found. (ed.)

Following discussion at the AGM concerning the awards at the Sporting Review Dinner which were predominantly trials orientated I am organising a club championship with awards for Enduro and Rally competitors.

Get Involved - For this first year points will be awarded to any West Glos (Paid up!) members entered rider at 10 points for 1st club finisher down to 1 point for 10th or any lower finisher, double points for 2 day events. Claims to me supported by results. If it all goes well Ill use the events represented in the points claims as a basis for a championship with nominated events in 2018. Points can be claimed from 1st Jan 2017 to 31st Dec 2017. Any questions and Id be pleased to answer. Cheers, Rod. (email: rodmonmouth@hotmail.co.uk)


Rod's Nod (of approval)

Points now updated after Bovington Dorset Enduro. Denver now close to Mick W at the top. Anthony only 1 minute behind Denver after a first run out on the Fantic Casa 250. Pete third and first points for Guy.

Points updated after Hafren Rally on 5th Nov. It was close between our riders: Micky W. 44:06, Denver 44:51, Mike A., 45:58. And Micky easily won the Rally Class but a Star entry pushed the others down in Rally Lite 1 Class.

It was a tough couple of days in The Isle of Man for 5 West Glos riders: only two classified finishers, Micky Wells and Vess. Confusion over back to back tests meant a DNF after a good ride for Ian Wixon, whilst Kev Jones and Rod Jones just ran out of time. All agreed that the good bits of the route are some of the best trails in the UK. Results.

Vess definitely still smiling at the finish and piling on 18 points.

Mike Wells celebrating a good safe finish for another maximum points.

Rod and Kev also have something to smile about... knowing they don't have to ride another gruelling day 2 - Phew! Pictured here after a clean up at end of day 1.
