Beamish Trophy Trial 2020


We are indeed living through ‘interesting times’. Everywhere we look events are being cancelled and our movements are becoming more curtailed.

The 48th Beamish Trophy Trial is planned to run on Sunday 20th September 2020.  With the speed at which events are moving, that is quite a long way ahead.  My purpose in writing is to let you know that at this point in time we hope that the situation has improved such that the event can go ahead. We are continuing to obtain the necessary permissions and permits but at the same time we are constantly reviewing the Coronavirus situation.

We intend to hold to our existing timetable and will therefore be contacting entrants by 24th April to confirm entries. However we will not be asking for entry fees at this time as the last thing we want to do is to have to make 150 repayments. (Treasurer Smith might have recourse to expletives were I to ask him) Instead, at such time as we can definitely confirm that the Trial is going ahead, probably by the end of August, we will contact you again requesting entry fees.

I hope this is all clear but if you do have any queries don’t hesitate to get in touch.

In the meantime I wish good health to you and your nearest and dearest.

Tom Norman
