The VSCC are returning to the Lake District this Saturday for the 50th Annual Lakeland Trial. The picturesque and now designated World Heritage Site will play host to just over 100 Vintage & Pre-war cars as they battle their way up 12 hill sections which include Long Crag, Grizedale and the ever challenging Drumhouse, to name but a few. VSCC Headquarters are based out of the Wheatsheaf Inn in Low Lorton.
Last year saw joint winners Peter Kite and Edward Williams share The Bridge Hotel Trophy after a victory score of 298 points each. Both are returning this year for a chance to retain the Trophy. Joining them are Bryan Gill in his 1928 Lea-Francis Spence Special and Richard Clark in his 1937 HRG 1, both cars competed in the very first Lakeland Trial 50 years ago.
Although trialling is not a spectator sport, public viewing is available at Drumhouse, Honister Slate Mine where a café is also available at the top of Honister Pass a venue that the VSCC has used since the very first Lakeland Trial.
