Sad to report that Tony Armstrong passed away recently at the age of 92. Many of our members won’t know Tony, although he had attended a few events recently with son Simon. Tony was a life member who competed for many years in trials latterly on a Gaunt Jawa.
He was also a long standing committee member and served as Club Captain for many years. Our thoughts are with Simon and Allison at this time.
Anthony Armstrong’s Funeral
Service is at Stonefall Crematorium on Thursday 16th December 2021 at 11am
Wetherby Road, Harrogate, HG3 1DE

When accidents occur, everything comes under microscopic scrutiny particularly from a Health and Safety perspective.
Fortunately for the trials community, the sport has to date enjoyed a ‘light touch’ attitude largely due to the absence of speed as a component in competition so serious accidents are thankfully rare. Nonetheless rules do apply and the Horsforth Club (and hopefully all clubs) will be doing our best to comply with our obligations and ensure the safety of riders, officials and the public. You might therefore experience some changes to signage, procedures etc and we respectfully suggest that everyone who attends a trial abides by the rules, signage, requests or instructions from officials and listens to the pre event briefings.
WARNING TO THE PUBLIC
MOTORSPORT CAN BE DANGEROUS
Despite the organisers taking all reasonable precautions, accidents can happen
Please comply with all instructions from officials and notices
and remain in permitted areas only
Bringing along an observer is like getting a free entry; £15 (£20 in winter if the weather is bad) is given to each observer to go towards their expenses of getting to the event etc

Where are our Trials? Just about everything you need to know about a trial (including the results afterwards) can be found by clicking on that specific ‘Event’ including a map of the location. There’s a bit more info on the locations (and maybe even the nearest postcode and/or What3Words) in ‘Locations’ which is revealed when you mouse over the ‘Info’ tab.
RESULTS:- we always try to get the results up on the relevant ‘Event‘ page on here and there is a shortcut to them by clicking on the results message in the ‘recent events’ section just on the right (or below if you are reading this on a phone).
They are also either on, or there is a link to them at www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials as soon as they are available (usually on the night of the trial unless something prevents it) so remember to have a look there – or if you are on facebook, ‘like’ our page and the results will come to you!
We also like to support TrialsCentral so the events and results can usually be found on there too.
Quickest way for recent events is to click on the result line on the right here (or below if you are reading this on a phone) in ‘Recent Events‘. For historical results just go the the relevant ‘Event’.
