Purbeck Stages - Woolbridge Motor Club - Saturday 23rd May 2015

Woolbridge Motor Club have been asked to run a special stage on the Purbeck Stages (forest stage rally) based within Bovington Camp near Wool .

In the past we have put on a good turnout of Marshals for Rallye Sunseeker so it would be good if we could do the same for this event.

A great deal of help will be required to run this stage due to the new safety requirements now required by the MSA.

Signing on will be about 9.00 am and the event will finish by approx 4.00 pm.

If you can help please contact me ASAP

Woolbridge Car Trials - Your ideas and thoughts are wanted.

I wanted to write to you to create some discussion about the 2015/16 trials championship and as a previous triallist, I would like to hear your input.

As you may know I have joined the WMC board with a mandate to help promote and grow the car trials in WMC. (As well as autotests)

One of the first things we have gained board authority for, is to create a sub committee to look after car trials. I will lead this sub committee but I am looking for some support and input from all of our trials competitors and officials.

This need not be as part of the subcommittee, but could be as an e mail correspondent to ensure we get feedback from as many competitors as possible.

I realise not all competitors have the time or inclination to attend meetings and become embroiled in the politics or bureaucracy- but we really do want your input.

Full details of the consultation is available here.

Dorset Team will drive for Charity in 2015 Monte Carlo or Bust Rally

 Woolbridge Motor Club members, Bob Blackstock from Bridport and Dave Hiscock from Charlton Marshall are taking part in June in the Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally to raise money for two charities. The team will burn rubber over 1,000 miles and three days from Namur in Belgium to Monte Carlo via Germany, Switzerland and Italy.

 Their team,  “Good Ol’ Boys – Dukes of Dorset” were challenged to source a car for less than £300. Bob had a twenty-three year old Toyota Celica GT4 languishing in his garage, having been laid up two years ago after failing the MoT. They  decided to spend their £300 putting it back on the road and, with 170,000 miles on the clock, it rolled out in January, ready to be decked out like the General Lee from the eighties Dukes of Hazard TV series.

 The Boys will be raising money for Blandford Historic Cupola Project and Multiple Sclerosis Research.

Bob and Dave are hoping that local small businesses will support their effort and aid them in raising money for their charities; £100 will buy a sticker on the car, or to make a donation no matter how small go to:

www.justgiving.com/bob-monte-carlo-rally  or www.cupolaproject.org.uk

Donations will not be used to subsidise their running costs on the event. (1p per mile = £10 to finish)

Bob and Dave have been involved in rallying for over thirty years, having met in the deserts of Qatar when organising an International rally there in 1983. Dave completed the Monte Carlo Rallye Historique in 2002 with Clive Edwards in a Lancia Fulvia, with Bob shadowing them in a back-up management car.

 The Monte Carlo or Bust Rally takes place between 4th and 7th June and more information can be found on the event website at www.montecarloorbustrally.com

Exeter Trial 2015 - Woolbridge Marshalling Team at Normans Hump - The Fifth Gear

TV film crews would like to thank every single marshal they came across.   Everyone went out of their way to make their lives easy, helping with parking their vehicles, picking out the best spots and ensuring they were safe.   The marshals were absolutely fantastic.   The TV crews want the marshals to know how much they appreciated their help.   

Our understanding is that the 2015 Exeter Trial will feature in a series of 3 Fifth Gear programmes, a 6 minute slot in each programme, which will go out in March on the History Channel to be repeated in the summer on Channel 5.

The most missed codeboard was H, located on the triangle north of Cornford Bridge at 194 / 690123. From Bishops Caundle you approach the cross roads from the east, but to get the NW approach to the junction at the bridge you have to go straight acoss the cross roads then turn left.

 I know I like to make things difficult for the experts, but an error in their herringbone was perhaps going a bit too far! Apologies for that.
