‘Drumhouse’ heads challenge for Competitors of the VSCC Lakeland Trial this weekend

Thursday 03 November 2016

This weekend sees the next round of the Club’s Winter Trials season with yet another capacity entry of 100 Pre-war cars heading north to Cumbria for the annual Lakeland Trial, again based at the warm surroundings of the Wheatsheaf Inn in Low Lorton this Saturday 5 November.
The day’s line-up of 14 sections is of course headed by the famous ‘Drumhouse’ section at Honister Slate Mine, an annual highlight for the Club – the long, steep quarry road leading up the side of 2,126ft Fleetwith Pike is often regarded the ultimate test of our Pre-war machinery, with its tortuous hairpin bends and rocky terrain.

Spectators are welcome to come and watch the action at ‘Drumhouse’ at the Honister Slate Mine from 9.00am to 3.30pm, where there will be plenty of public parking for a small fee to the venue and catering facilities on site.

There are a number of significant changes to this year’s event, to comply with the restrictions set out by the local Forestry Commission. To that end, we have had to restrict Spectator access to ‘Drumhouse’ only, with no further access at any other locations on the day, with the required safety management in place at this venue.

The organising team continue to work tirelessly to ensure our Lakeland Trial goes ahead each year so please support us and help maintain our good relationship with the local community and Forestry so the future of the event is assured!
