TRIALGP GREAT BRITAIN – THAT FREE FRIDAY FEELING
With the ACU having now taken over as the local organiser of next weekend’s – 8 / 9th July – TrialGP Great Britain at Tong – Bradford, they are delighted to announce that free admission will be given to all ACU licence holders – both competitors and officials – when they show their membership card at the entrance.
Since agreeing to run the event just over two weeks ago much work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure that the TrialGP remained at the original venue which is a mecca for all off-road fans and will provide easy access to all of the fifteen sections. The ACU Directors have been keen to ensure all members have the opportunity to watch this event first hand at minimal cost.
The action takes place over two days with the official practice starting at 11am on the Saturday followed by the new qualification at 3pm, which to date has been a real highlight at the previous four events. In addition, around sixty riders of the future will compete in the Oset Trial on a separate compact course within the confines of the Trial area.
Of course, the big day is Sunday when all of the World’s top riders, including the incredible Toni Bou – Repsol Honda along with a good crop of British challengers, will demonstrate their skills over fifteen spectacular sections from 9am onwards with an early finish time of around 3.30pm. The course has been designed for all spectators to be able to visit all sections with a dedicated path away from the Trial route for ease and safety.
ACU Chairman John Collins stated, “It is rewarding for the Directors, who have considered many options ahead of this decision, to be in a position where our members can reap some benefits and receive the opportunity to see all of the World’s best riders in action at no cost to themselves. The system is simple, members will just need to show their photographic membership card at the point of entry and they will be allowed in free of charge whilst non-members will have to pay the normal admission prices”.
Members who wish to camp will need to pay the standard camping fee, but a packed glossy programme will be available to all who attend. ACU licence holders who have already purchased advance tickets will be refunded after the event. The ACU respectfully asks for your patience during this process.
