Arbuthnot Long Distance Trial Centenary

03/09/2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Trial for pre-1975 motorcycles or outfits, covering about 80 miles both off & on road in the beautiful Wilts & Dorset countryside, much of it only accessible once a year.

The Arbuthnot Trial is held in recognition of Sir Robert Keith Arbuthnot (1864 – 1916). He was a Rear Admiral in the Royal Navy. An enthusiastic member of the Motor Cycling Club, he kept his motorbike in his day cabin and engaged in long distance endurance races. In 1908, he came third in the single-cylinder class of the Isle of Man TT, and an annual rally in the Isle of Man and a TT trophy for service members are named after him.

The first rider starts at 9 am from The Barford Inn, Barford St Martin.

Helpers always welcome.

Entry via ACU website.
