The Isle of Wight Motorcycle Club is proud to announce the 2016 Wight Two DayTrial – will take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of April 2016. The first WightOpen trial was held way back in 1947. Last year saw the return to the original format– that included roadwork.
The Wight Two Day has attracted some very well-known names over the years, most notably, Sammy Miller, who took the title no less than seven times. Sammy remainsthe rider with most wins spanning from his first title in 1967 to his last win in 1977.Home grown, Becky Cook, the only winning female rider to date, won the title in 2008. Becky went on to take successive British & European trials Championships.
The Club took the decision to reintroduce road work last year, (for some riders) in preparation for next year, which will be the 50th, Golden Anniversary Trial. The Club thought it important to celebrate this milestone (that very few Club’s will have achieved) just as it began, back ‘on the road’. We are looking forward to a bumper entry in 2017. There will of course be the usual all ‘off road trial’ that will run in tandem alongside those riders opting to include roadwork.
Red Funnel Ferries are once again supporting our trial, kindly, offering discounted return ferry fares for those travelling from the mainland. Full details are available from the Club’s website: www.iowmcc.co.uk
We look forward to welcoming you to the Isle of Wight later in mid-April for what promises to be a great weekend.
