The JP Corry Slemish Cup Trial- 26th October


 Slemish Mountain, Broughshane


The off road motorcycle section of the Mid Antrim Motor Club Ltd will be promoting their Slemish Cup trial around the slopes of the famous County Antrim mountain near Broughshane on Saturday 26th October starting at 11am from the mountain car park. We are delighted to announce that The J.P.Corry Group, The Complete Builders Suppliers, are to continue with their sponsorship of the event this year. We are deeply indebted to the J.P.Corry Group for this support, coming especially in these difficult economic times. We are also very grateful to Ballymena Borough Council who assists the event with the use of the mountain car park and toilet facilities. The event would not be possible without the cooperation of all the landowners at Slemish who always support the club by allowing the use of their lands. The club are deeply indebted to all the landowners for all their help and cooperation.

Well folks some of the team were at Saturday’s trial venue this afternoon marking out the sections. They look really good and hopefully work out well for all levels, we really have put a lot of effort into ‘getting it right’ for the riders! The carpark field was in fact fine and yes lots of rain but the course will be spot on. Remember if you have not ridden a trial before and you want to have a go, bring your bike & gear, we will get you started and if you fancy a go at the trial we really have made sure your C line is perfect for getting started. To the A & B riders John will sort you into grades and the sections should be very enjoyable. We are also starting you in groups at different sections on the first lap to keep things flowing..  check some pictures I took from today! ps click on the photos to go into the gallery, you can see the sections better 🙂
