The Committee has reconsidered the position regarding club trials and the club championship for 2021.
It was a unanimous decision of the committee to restart the 2021 Club Championship with Round 1 on 30th May 2021 at Alvie Estate.
There has been a lot of disruption regarding the Scottish Championship rounds this year and other clubs have been trying to put events on following the easing of Covid regulations and preclusions in Scotland.
However, we have to do what is best for our members and to this end we have now planned a 5 round championship of observed trials. If these dates clash with other clubs, then our members have to decide where they want to compete.
Here are the dates and venues:
30.05.2021 – Alvie Estate
20.06.2021 – Tomchrasky
15.08.2021 – Ballindalloch
19.09.2021 – Tomchrasky
31.10.2021 – Cannich
Entry forms are available on the page:

All Club Championship trials for 2021 will be organised by Inverness Trials Club (a trading style of Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club Ltd)
The club is ready!
Unfortunately we were forced to cancel the Club Championship trial on Sunday 11th April, but we have everything in hand to start the championship in late May.
The new championship rider’s numbers have arrived ready for you!
In the hope of the sport being kickstarted back to life next month (April) the IDMCC Ltd committee have decided to do things a little differently this year when it comes to the Club Championship, which didn’t happen in 2020 due to Covid.
Firstly, all club trials will now be ‘pre-entry’ by online form, there is a specific webpage for this – HERE – and it’s quite simple to use, many have already used our pre-entry system already. Don’t just turn up and ask for an entry on the day, you will probably be handed an Observer’s sheet instead. No pre-entry – No ride!
Secondly, we have suspended the use of punch cards in favour of observer’s sheets for 2021 at Club Championship rounds and our national trials.
Thirdly, we have decided that only sections at a club championship trial which has an observer marking scores, will count to the overall score on the day and thus will determine who scores championship points in their respective class. An observer may be asked to score at a suitable ‘double’ section where it is possible to do so.
The more observers that are available, the more likely of having a fair trial!
Last but not least, we will be issuing our club competitors with re-useable plastic riding numbers, which you will keep for the 2021 season. You will keep the same number throughout the season. Keep your number plate safe as replacement plates will be chargeable! These numbers are currently being allocated in advance of Round 1, when your entry is received, you can view the numbers – HERE.
So, the 2021 IDMCC Ltd Championship begins on Sunday 11th April at Cannich – ENTER HERE.
The committee have decided to abandon punch cards for the forseeable future due to Covid precautions.
We have gone ahead and purchased observer’s sheets from our usual supplier of marking equipment and these cover up to 100 riders over a maximum of five laps.
Printed on waterproof paper, they can be scored with a pen or pencil and are handed back at the end of the trial by the observer.
The Club Championship will be run over 4 rounds with observed sections only counting towards the results.
To overcome the age old problem of not having enough observers, sections that are not staffed with an observer will not count towards the trials scoring.
This way we can cover the events with the observers available. Remember you should offer to observe at one round during the series, the more observers we can muster, the more sections will count in every event towards the overall championship.
As necessary, the club committee have been meeting by Zoom call and so far it has been successful in keeping club business going.
We will have to consider postponing the AGM planned for 5th April due to accommodation issues, so we hope to have the AGM by the end of May at the latest.
Club trials resume with the Club/Company Championship opener at Cannich on Sunday, 11th April, remember it is no longer turn up and ride, there is an entry form to be completed, payment at signing on by contactless payment system.
