Richard Waterhouse needs a passenger.

Richard is looking for a passenger - initially for the 2 day trial at Biggar.

He could really do with someone to passenger on a more regular basis. It would be pity if the lack of a passenger jeopardised his involvement in the sport.

Contact Richard direct on 0113 255 8257 or

If any non-member sees this and might be interested in becoming involved in the sport please use the contact form on the front page of the website.

Perseid Meteor ShowerGeneral Banter

Not only is it the Practice Day-Team Trial Event this Sunday (12th August) it is also the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. The weather this weekend looks like it might be ideal for trialling but it could be too cloudy for meteor spotting. So, it might be worth having a look on Friday and/or Saturday nights if you are putting the cat out/on the late shift/borrowing lead from the church roof.
If you are interested there's a map and a bit of bumf if you click on the icon below.

Do forget to enter for Practice Day - much lower chance of getting arrested than lurking about at night.

Hi everyone,
The Cumbria Classic Weekend Motor show is taking place on the 18th & 19th of August 2018 at Dalemain House, between Penrith & Pooley Bridge.

We were looking to get a Club stand together for the Sunday show.
If there is anyone interested please get in touch with me or Mark Milne.

We are missing the club banner can anybody shed any light on its whereabouts please.

It would be nice to get a few cars there, as its been a while since the NPTTC had a good representation at a car show.

Please let us know if you fancy it.

2018 Driver Classes & Amended RulesTechnical Matters

Posted by Colin Campbell Fri, February 02, 2018 23:59:40

2018 Driver Classes

The Driver Classes for the 2018 Season were agreed at the Committee meeting on 27 January and are reproduced in the PDF below.
A combination of last season's average scores and finishing places was used in determining the classes, as the average scores alone produced a number of obvious anomalies. The Club's Championship rules have therefore been amended to incorporate the improved methodology.

Any drivers wishing to appeal their classification may appeal to the Committee within 21 days.
Appeals should be made in writing to the Club Secretary and state the grounds of appeal.

Amended Club & Championship Rules

A copy of the full Club and Championship Rules, incorporating the amendments referred to above and which were approved by the Committee on 27 January, is attached below:
