Mutton Lancers Trial 29th October
Well it was a wet one but hopefully everyone enjoyed it. Big thanks to all the observers and everyone else who made it happen. There should have been some pictures available here but sadly a camera malfunction means that it will have to wait til next year. In the meantime more importantly we have the results available from Here, or under the Events page. How did you do?
Barham Charity Trial 30th July
A good turnout of riders who all seemed to enjoy the day, resulted in a good sum raised for the Hospice. Over £500 was raised in all for a very worthwhile cause. In the meantime the provisional results can be found here.
A big thank you to everyone who attended and in particular to all observers and "course clearers and setter uppers" and naturally to the landowner. Without these people the event wouldn't be possible.
Road Ride out
So a bit of a disappointing turnout on the day - some unable to make the ride who had planned to do so due to personal circumstances - but those that did make it enjoyed a pleasant ride around the roads and ended up with fish & chips on Ramsgate sea front. Lets hope if another is organised in the future more members can make it!

October 2022
Mutton Lancers Trial
The weather wasn't so kind for this one! Around 66 riders enjoyed (hopefully!) the day. The steady rain early on did make the going a bit greasy but most were saying that there was still grip to be found.  Along with a good variety of sections to challenge everyone.

Sadly the slightly inclement weather played havoc with my picture taking this time so excuse the mistiness/blurry on some. (Note to self must get some lens protection for the next one!)
There's also some more images on the Gallery page
Thanks as always to all the observers, land owners and club members that set up the course.
Lord of Lydden
Held over 21st and 22nd October it pretty much is the last big road race meeting in the South East and never fails to throw up some great racing. Sunday saw a deluge of rain first thing but then weather improved, the track dried out and some great racing in all classes from FAB 50/70cc youth, scooters, classic sidecars plus the usual solo and sidecar classes made a great day out. Shame I couldn't find a programme to put some names to pictures but maybe next time.

Fancy a good read?

We all like a good read don't we? But what to read? Well we have a whole range of books available from Biographies to Encyclopedias. All (well most!) are based on bikes or cars. They are all used but in good condition. 

Click on the book icon below to see what there is and if you fancy one just e-mail with what you'd pay and which book of course, if it's reasonable then the book will be yours. Remember though that we will need to charge postage on any that we post out, but you can always arrange to pick up at the monthly club meeting.

How much do you want to offer - well that's up to you, but the books in Group C are that bit rarer so we will reserve the right to turn down silly offers!!


The good bit is that 50% of the proceeds of any sale will come to the club while the other 50% will go to a Dementia charity.

So what are you waiting for

A great days racing on the Sunday with Barham members Dave Mears and Derrick Keyes flying the flag in the 350 and upright classes respectively. Weather was kind and a good crowd enjoyed some good action.

And now for something completely different!
These days we're all use to having our digital cameras and smartphones, able to take super sharp images and videos at the drop of a hat but in the days before the smartphone it was a little different to say the least!
