After a year away we returned to the Cotswold Clouds to a snowy and very wintry scene in Dursley, Stroud and surroundings. Crooked Mustard took up its usual slot as first hill for the odd numbered cars and proved to be as entertaining as normal. Very few crews cleared the hill with many going no further than the ledge at post 7 to post 5. We then moved on to the Badgers Wood complex and took in the picture perfect Gerry’s test, which had a stop start to the class 7 & 8 cars. With a decent covering of snow it proved to be a superb days motorsport. Read More »


cotswoldclouds17-109Another weekend and another trial seems to be the way 2017 is going. We returned to the Cotswold Clouds for the 3rd time and took in Crooked Mustard and Badger’s Wood. Dean Partington (DP Wasp) made up for his disappointment on the Clee Hills by taking victory, with a score of just 11 points, (only losing marks on 2 hills). Aaron Haizelden was 2nd overall in his class 5 Reliant Scimitar SS. Joint 3rd overall were Duncan Stephens (class 7) and Craig Allen (class 4).

cotswoldclouds16 (93)Three trials in 2016 already, this is getting serious! We paid a visit to Dursley & Stroud for our first visit to the Cotswold Clouds in 3 years. A bumper field and decent crowds were entertained by the 80+ crews on Crooked Mustard, with the best part of 10 crews making it up the challenging section. Merv’s Swerve proved harder and Dan Partington & Sam Phillips (DP Wasp) were one of the only crews to clear both sections we watched. Another great day trialing. Read More »

clouds13 (112)For the 2nd year in a row we have taken in a trial in the early season. With Clee Hills being cancelled we instead headed down to Stroud & Dursley for the Cotswold Clouds. We watched on the wonderful named Crooked Mustard and Merv’s Swerve, both of which were challenging for all the crews, (in fact only one crew cleared Merv’s Swerve). As is the way with trials it all comes down to who has the fewest penalty points and with just 22 points, John White (Beetle), took overall victory and class 4. Joint 2nd with 25 points each were Keith Sanders (Scimitar) in class 5 and Carl Talbot in class 8 and the only the crew to clear Merv’s Swerve. Read More »
