PISTON SLAP                                               JULY 2020


First of all I hope everyone kept well during these strange times. Our trials organisers have decided to take advantage of the recent easing of ACU restrictions.



This trial will be held at Browns Farm, Powerstock. There are still numerous restrictions. First of all entries must be made online via the ACU entry system. NO ENTRIES WILL BE TAKEN AT THE START.

General rules can be seen on the ACU website. Anyone having problems can phone Paul Rogers on 07714 276333 for guidance. Supplementary Regulations will be on the club Facebook and website in due course, please read them fully and understand the Covid safety measures in place.

There are also changes in the running of the event. Riders will be paired off and ride in groups of six to observe their opposite number via the punch card system. You will be given your own punch for the day (This can be zip tied to your handlebars and a simple pouch made from gaffer tape stuck on behind your number board). There should be no spectators but family members of youth riders will be the exception. Social Distancing should be practiced as much as possible. Final instructions will be emailed to riders nearer the day. Remember this is a closed to club trial so you must enter as a Bridport & Weymouth member. Entry closes at 21:00hrs on Thursday 14th August or when it’s full.

Do not come if unwell or you or anyone else in your household have any of the Covid symptoms.


There are three possible routes to get to the start. Competitors from the Yeovil area should use the long established route off A356 Maiden Newton - Crewkerne road about four miles from Maiden Newton ( where the radio station used to be ) and follow the Powerstock signs. Those coming from Dorchester direction can stay on the A35 for about three miles beyond the bypass ( Monkeys Jump roundabout ) and turn right onto the old Roman Road ( where the pallets are stacked) then go straight on to Eggardon Hill, then straight on again, sign post Unfit for HGVs and follow the road to Powerstock village. Once in the centre of the village turn left down the hill past the school ( Postcode DT6 3TD ) to the T junction. ( marked from there ). Riders coming from the West. Take the Beaminster road off Bridport bypass, A3066, to the outskirts of the town. About 100 yards beyond Gore Cross roundabout turn right ( Townsend Way ) and again follow the Powerstock signs. You will get to the course, on the right, before you get to the village. All these routes are along narrow roads so please drive with care.

Start time is 11.00am and all the usual classes will be catered for.    

Entries open online Sat 25th July at 8 00pm.

I hope you all have an enjoyable day.



We hope to run our Open trial at our usual venue, North Poorton Farm on the above date provided Covid regulations remain unchanged, or even improved, keep fingers crossed.
