Welcome to the website of

 Devonport & District Motor Cycle Club!

 ***** PLEASE NOTE: THAT FROM 06 SEPTEMBER 2016 ALL NOTIFICATION OF EVENTS, RESULTS, ETC WILL BE VIA FACEBOOK *******

*** SEARCH FOR DEVONPORT TRIALS CLUB ***

This move will allow all of us to communicate easier with each other and keep more up to date with events

As before we intend to run 6 trials through the year and our trial dates will be found in the South Western Centre fixture list with entry forms in the monthly gazette as well as being advertised in TMX and on this website

We are  affiliated to the ACU which means you can now obtain your licence through us if you wish. No need to fill in a form and queue up at a trial to get your membership and licence code just go on the ACU licence page and where it gives you the option for the renewal code OR renewing/joining club membership take the latter and click on Devonport & District Motorcycle Club, The club membership is 5.00 and once you have done this you will automatically get a renewal code for your licence. Any problems give Simon a call. 

For 2016 onwards we have two new exciting venues : at Preston Combe nr. Moreleigh and high up on Dartmoor at Beardown Farm, Two Bridges. The Beardown venue needs a lot of preparatory work; cutting out , etc. and we won't see the full extent of the possibilities until that is carried out.

Also from 2016 we plan to include a class for trail bikes running on the (green) easy route which will also be included n the Aggregate series. We are conscious that in the past we have had a reputation for hard trials which may have deterred novices and newcomers so intend to make the easy (white) route "user friendly" and so encourage more people to enjoy our wonderful sport. Please note the Championship trial at Merrivale will not have a trail bike class and the routes will be of championship standard.

We are conscious that the trials community is not getting any younger and so will offer an over 60 class in the Aggregate series run on the white route.

AGGREGATE SERIES

We have a number of magnificent perpetual trophies, a legacy of the club's long history, and rather than leave them unused in a cupboard we have decided to  offer them to the winners of an annual aggregate series. The classes will be as follows :

    Over 60 riding easy route           -  to be allocated

    Trail bikes riding easy route       -  to be allocated

     Over 50 riding 50/50 route          - Veteran Shield

     Sportsman riding 50/50 route    - The Pike Cup

     Novice riding easy route            - BSA Cup

     Clubman riding clubman route  - Ariel Cup

     Pre 65 riding easy route            - Triumph Cup

     Twinshock riding easy route     - Glanfield Lawrence Trophy

     Most improved youth and club member of the year will be awarded trophies at the discretion of the committee

Aggregate points will be awarded at all events except the Championship trial

We are allowing riders to miss one trial. Riders that compete in all our trials will have their lowest result discounted and points will be awarded down to

10th place.

The above cups were sponsored by manufacturers and dealers and are a part of the DDMC's history, some of them date back to the 50s so are well worth competing for.
