Highland Classic gets its own website

The Highland Classic Two-Day Trial, the flagship event of the Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club Ltd has now launched it’s own bespoke website.

This will enable the event to promote it’s identity and release valuable web-space on the IDMCC Ltd’s club website, to enable it to promote it’s ‘TEAM INVERNESS‘ brand which encompasses the Inverness & District and Inverness Trials Clubs.

The new website is live and already has attracted a lot of hits in its first day of operations.

The site contains a lot of useful information for the riders, observers and officials and will enable the use of online facilities without using up valuable club resources.

Classic Trial Mag Results Service

Classic Trial Magazine who have been a Trial Partner of the Highland Classic Two-Day Trial for a number of years have agreed to support the 2021 event Results Service by supplying the club with computer equipment to allow Event Secretary, Mieke de Vos and Assistant Secretary, Geoff Davison get the results tabulated electronically at the event.

This year, we will not be using punch cards at the annual Highland Classic, but observer’s sheets to cut down on the handling element and still get results up on the master score sheets during the trial.

They will be using an Excel spreadsheet to input the scores from each section at the event which takes place at Alvie Estate on 12/13 June this year and the system has already been tested this week using computer equipment supplied by Classic Trial Magazine, using ‘dummy’ scores and it works really well.

Highland Classic Update 2021

Highland Classic 2021 – Fantic Edition – Update:

The Team Inverness committee met on Monday 25th January and on the agenda was the Highland Classic 2021.

At present we plan to run the trial on 12/13th June and we now have the FIME registration number via the ACU.

The committee decided to fix the date by which we would have to make a final decision as to whether or not to run the trial, the date chosen is Friday, April 30th which is 6 weeks prior to the event.

This should give enough notice for entrants to cancel any accommodation or travel arrangements.

At present we are currently exploring options with regard to catering on site and WC facilities for the event.

All this with regard to health, safety and welfare and of course Covid regulations.

For safety reasons, Punch cards will not be used this year, instead, each observer will use a observer’s sheet covering all 200 entrants. This limits the observer/rider contact and will reduce any queuing at sections considerably.

As a direct consequence, we may not have our usual awards ceremony or results available at the end of the trial, but we are looking into options at this time.

We may have to reduce the contents of entrants welcome packs this year as a higher percentage of the entry fee will be used to providing facilities this year, due in part to Covid-19.

All entrants who have secured an entry will continue to be updated by e-mail.

We are now inviting those who are willing to observe at this year’s Two-Day to make contact the club representatives, Jimmy Jenkins (07798904066) or Nigel Robertson (07743854206).

HC2DT 2020 – Information on Entries

Highland Classic Two Day Trial 2020 – The Fantic Edition: ~

Entries will open on Saturday 1st February 2020 and are limited to 160 entrants. Entry Form and Regulations will be available as a pdf download from the IDMCC website on the Highland Classic page and on facebook.

Since 2014 we have usually been oversubscribed and we run the entry system on a First Come, First Entered basis, no ballot.


We also have a reserve entry list made up of those entries recieved when the allocation has been filled and we find that between 10-15% usually drop their entry before the event due to circumstances outwith the entrants control.


There will be a box in the entry form to tick to let us know that an entrant wishes to be on the reserve list if their entry  has been received after the allocation is full.
