SPONSORS REQUIRED FOR 2020
2020 SSTC Championship Sponsorship Opportunity
After many years of loyal support sadly Trade Tyres Guildford & Crest Nicholson Regeneration are unable to continue their sponsorship for next year. We greatly appreciate their past support & thank them sincerely for all they have done for the Club.
Two great opportunities now exist for new 2020 Club sponsors.
Sponsors will have a Championship run in their name with publicity on the Club website, Facebook Page & TMX reports.
If you are interested in sponsoring one of our Championships please can you let Nigel or Watty know. (It won’t break the bank & the kids will greatly appreciate it as it goes towards the cost of the trophies !).
Please note the earlier start time for the trial due to it getting dark early
Signing on in the hall only unless prior arrangements have been made with Shelley Smithard the event secretary
Limited parking on school site this year but you can park at trumps mill as people will be there setting out and to keep an eye on the vehicles
FIRST GEAR TRIALS CENTRE CLOSURE
As you may have heard First Gear Trials will be closing its gates due to land being redeveloped, a great shame as yet another piece of land goes.
Andy has always supported us as a club and has asked if we could advertise his 4 OSET 20 ECO'S that he has for sale, if interested look on the for sale page of this website.

Camping Weekend 2019
What another great weekend at the SSTC Camping Weekend. I think it is safe to say that lots of fun was had by all and it will be bigger and better next year with hopefully less rain and mud!
Sadly, the club has to have a little moan. It was brought to our attention that there had been some litter left in the woods at Sethern. Beer cans, bottles, sweet wrappers and polystyrene cups, which is totally unacceptable. Not only harmful to the wildlife but generally disrespectful to Roy & Lynne. Land for trials is becoming increasingly more difficult to come by, so we must make sure we look after the land/owners that we do have otherwise these events will not be possible. Local members of the club went to Sethern on Monday evening to do a litter pick.
On another note, the brick wall around the fire pit was damaged as a result of people riding over it. SSTC will have to carry out the repairs to the wall as a result of this.
Please respect and look after the land we use and then we can continue to have these great events.

FIM European Trial Championship
Saturday 20thApril saw Round 1 of the FIM European Trials Championship held at Metzeler Off-Road Park, Pietramurata, Italy. Joe Snelling entered the Youth International Class & finished 15thout of 25 entries, only 12 marks off 9thposition, being the only UK entrant. The trial was challenging with loose rocky ground but Joe with his minder, Richard Harbud, put on a great effort.
The following few days saw Joe practising at Oasi Verdi in Prestine in Northern Italy before heading to Monza Race Circuit for Round 2 of the Championship on Saturday 27thApril. Again Joe was the only UK entrant from a field of 27 entries on a manmade course where he finished 19th.
The whole experience was amazing with a strong ACU Squad competing in all Classes including Women International, Women Championship, Youth International, Youth Championship, Junior Cup, International 1, International 2 & European Championship.
The ACU Squad consisted of Alicia Robinson, Gabby Whitham, Joe Snelling, Harry Turner, Harry Hemmingway, Jack Dance, Brett Harbud, Owen Chestnut, Jack Peace & Dan Peace.
Rounds Three & Four of the Championship are being held in Ancelle, France & Brezova, Czechoslovakia on the weekends of 10th& 17thAugust – bring it on !
