LONG DISTANCE TRIALS AND RALLIES - DIRECTORY OF EVENTS - for motorcycles



??? against a date represents the 2011 or 2012 past date - am awaiting 2012 0r 2013 date - if you know it, please tell me. Many thanks.

For further information about ACTC clubs and the ACTC Motorcycle Championship events - see http://www.actc.org.uk/

LDTs - as a rule of thumb these are suitable for smaller (around 250cc) singles with low gearing, reasonable torque but, essentially, a good lock to be able to manoeuvre in tight sections. Also a good idea to pick a lightish model (as you are likely to be picking it up out of the mud regularly if you ride like me!). If you are the competitive type, look at last year's results and see what bikes finished in the top 20 of the event you are interested in.

Rallies - quite a different kettle of fish. Much depends on the individual event but, most importantly, the weather! I haven't been able to do any of the rallies so if anyone can advise which ones are suitable for bigger bikes then I am happy to add the information.
