Press Trial and charity auction

By Web editor, 23 June 2013
Press trial was competitive

The press trial competitors have had their first go round the Newark course, with the predictable thrills and spills. There will be a charity trial auction this evening in the Cedric Ford Pavilion...

Classic Dirt Bike editor Tim Britton piloted a sidecar around the ¼ mile trial arena. Competing, too, was extreme mountain bike rider Danny Butler (an ex trial champ, no less) and stunt rider Steve Colley. The second half of the press trial is tomorrow, with an early start at 9am (sign on at 8am).

After the event there will be a charity trials auction in the Cedric Ford Pavillion at 6pm, then Steve Plater will be talking to the assembled stars on stage at 7am and after that we have live band The Limit taking over from 9pm until midnight. We hope to see you tomorrow.
