2021 Event Results :

Many thanks to the 24 teams / 72 drivers & their passengers / co-drivers, support teams & nominated marshals & all the additional marshals & officials from MROC & other Clubs that all made this year's event a great success !
We had individual participants from at least 20 different Clubs - which was amazing after having to miss the last 2 years trials due to COVID !

We hope all those that attended enjoyed themselves - even if the days were a little intensive.

Apart from some "tidying up" activities, the MROC organising team led by Liz Welch are taking a well earned rest for a while - lol.

Results are now in !

Big thanks to our Chief Scorekeeper & Results Compiler Tim Kemp.

Overall Team results & individual Section scores by Driver are now available on the Results page of this website here.

Well done to overall winners Colin Roberts, Allan Roberts & Geoff Cooper of Breckland Land Rover Club on 117 points,
just beating previous winners Ben Parkes , Neal Mellish & Dave Naylor - who were on 118 points - Very close !

We're collecting photos & videos of the event via our Facebook page.

COVID-19 Modifications

COVID still exists & generates some changes to how the trial / trial organization will operate. Ms UK also have various rules in place to assist risk management that we must comply with.

REMINDER: Do not attend the event if you have or recently have had any COVID symptoms or recently FAILED a COVID test.

All drivers & most passengers / Co-drivers & marshals / officials have already “Signed-On”.
On arrival you'll be just checked in against the relevant Entry List
.

Passengers or Officials / Marshals who haven't Signed-On yet must now do so on arrival at the Eastnor site (More info. below).

Camping / Caravan plot payments will still be via cash on arrival (Pre-booking NOT required). However to eliminate multiple handling of cash, we WON’T be providing “change” – so please come prepared with the correct money (Cost info. below in Facilities).

On arrival at the site a lead person for each caravan / camping plot will need to provide their name, contact phone no., vehicle reg. & quantity of people overnighting on the plot.

Although Government restrictions may have reduced significantly by the time of the trial, we expect all visitors to comply with all restrictions which are in place & maintain sensible social distancing or use PPE such as masks if appropriate.

Spectators:

SPECTATORS ARE NOW PERMITTED - in-line with the updated Ms UK guidelines for UK events.
However, for everyone's b
enefit, we strongly suggest sensible social distancing is still maintained & eg Face Masks used where reasonable social distancing can't be kept to.

For those who've not been to Eastnor before, please note that the trials sections can be upto 1 mile from the nearest permitted parking, so if you can't get a lift in when the trial starts - eg with competitors or marshals you know, it can be a long walk in & out ! Sections can be typically 400m apart (some a lot more) - so be prepared to take everything in with you that you'll need for the day !
We can not permit spectators cars nearer the trials sections due to lack of parking space & the large quantity of competitor vehicles we need to move around the woods without delays.

Facilities :

Camping is available on site in the Eastnor Deer Park (Tents, Caravans, Motorhomes etc all welcome).
No pre-booking is required. Cost is £15 per night per plot. We will take details & payment on arrival on site.
Staying on site beyond the Sunday is possible with additional payment (It's a very nice location !)

We will have catering (evening meals), drinking water & toilet facilities available in the camping area together with a marquee to allow socialising under cover. There will be a bar on site Friday & Saturday evenings !!
The site has an Elsan emptying point available.

Catering will be provided by the well known Boundary Bangers ! Menu details below.
Breakfasts will be available in the Sheep Field before the trial starts on both Saturday & Sunday. Make sure you have enough time, there might be a queue - lol.
The bar will by Bar 7 Events (as enjoyed by many at the last few Major's events !).
Toilets will be available on the campsite & up at the Sheep Field (Trial start & finish location)

Some extra food details from Boundary Bangers :
