From Jonathan Neale Its the start of the 2020 season with Monklands Sporting Car Club’s first Production Car Trial on Sunday 1 March at Forrestburn. I hope to find you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the season ahead!
A notable change from Motorsport UK HQ this year. All entrants and passengers now need to be registered with MSUK to be able to compete. The good news is that it’s free but you will need to go to the following link to make the necessary application:
If you haven’t done the necessary before the event then don’t worry. You can fill out the necessary paperwork on the day – it just means we will have more paperwork to fill in so I would be grateful if the majority could do the needful ahead of the first event.
Another notable change is my email address. It is now email@example.com so please can you update your address book as I will not receive emails sent to the old email address.
Entries by email are preferred but by post is fine too. If you have trouble filling in the Entry Form which you can download here then just drop me an email with your name, car type and class entered and you can fill in the form on the day. Payment can be done on the day as well. I do not have access to social media I’m afraid. As always, if you are available to marshal then I would be very grateful for your support. Just let me know if you are intending to attend so I can make sure lunch is available for you.
Otherwise, I hope it will be business as usual – good weather (I’m working on that), great lunch and fun on the hills.
The results of the PCT are now online here or here. My thanks go as always to the marshals for standing out in the rain and pushing cars stuck in the mud. My thanks also to Marion and Derek for keeping us fed and watered. That’s it for 2019 so have a good festive season and get ready to rumble next year.
Thanks to the efforts of John Crae and George Dow, we have some images from the Production Car Trial held at Forrestburn on Sunday 3 November 2019.
A great big thanks to all the marshalls who had to endure some pretty awful weather today, allowing us to take to the hills for the first of the end of season Production Car Trials today. Also to Marion for taking on the scoring, etc and Shonah feeding us all with her barbecue skills.
Looking forward to seeing you all on November 3rd for our final season event. Here is a photo-set courtesy of George Dow.
Here is a small collection of images from the Production Car Trial held at Forrestburn on Sunday 25 March 2019. Photos from George Dow. Oh and the results of the Trial are now available here. It was a rather wet and blustery day so many thanks to the drivers and marshals for braving the weather.
The first competitive event of the 2019 season got underway at Forrestburn on Sunday 24 February in beautiful conditions. The Production Car Trial was well attended. We have a video of the event from Scott Clements.
We don’t have a report on the day yet but more text or images and here are the results. Meanwhile here is a photo gallery of the event. Pics courtesy of Jamie and Shonah Gibbon (images suffixed 01-19). And then a smaller set of high-quality images from George Dow now included (images suffixed 20-27) and Trish and Donald MacDonald (images suffixed 28-39).
Jonathan Neale here – I hope you are all fighting fit and raring to go for the 2019 season. Please download the regulations for the production car trial which is to be held on Sunday 24 February at Forrestburn. If you would like to enter then there are a variety of ways of doing that:
Print the form, fill it in and scan or photo it and send to me via email
Print the form, fill it in and send to me via post
Unfortunately, I cannot accept entries via social media
Payment can be made by cash or cheque on the day.
After the brilliant turn out of marshals last November, I would like to welcome you all back this month. Let me know if you intend to attend so that we can ensure lunch is supplied for everyone. I look forward to seeing you all on the 24 February.
