Truro Speed Academy 2020

Truro and District Motor Club are delighted to announce that registration is now open for this year’s Speed Academy. The academy covers both the Speed disciplines of Sprint and Hill climbs, at four very different venues.

We would like to extend our thanks to Camel Vale Motor Club and Newquay Auto Club for offering the use of their venues at Castle, Lostwithiel and Treloy at the discounted entry fee, and for their continued support of the Academy.

Following on from the successes of previous year’s, we will again offer a total of TWELVE events at a discounted entry fee.

The regulations and registration form for the academy can be found in Word format here and as a PDF here.

Please return your completed form to the Academy Registrar at the address on the document or email to tregrehan@trurodmc.co.uk

Morgan owners club navigational scatter taster

The Morgan owners club are running a navigational scatter taster event on Sunday 29th March 2020.  Event is being run by Roger and Shirley Hoskin, it is a day time event of about 80 miles and open in the main for classic cars, but others will be permitted to enter if places exist.  As a taster event the organisers give some help at the start to novices and even supply a map.

It is called a 16 point challenge, meaning that there are 16 control points to locate.  The control are given as six figure map references, most are only in part form and by solving and plotting further map references and clues you locate other information to further control points.  All very good fun.

This is a good introduction to rallying and has a fairly relaxed, but competitive feel to it with help from Roger Hoskin to those who have not done similar types of events in the past.  There is also no need to join the Morgan owners club either.

The regulations and entry are here

Truro and District Motor Club Awards Dinner

Our annual Awards Dinner was held on February 1st, at the Legacy Hotel Victoria in Newquay. Our Motorsport friends gathered to celebrate the 2019 season, and to receive the class awards from our events and the Club awards for outstanding service in the past year.

We were also delighted to make two cheque presentations. The first was to Westcountry Rescue, of proceeds raised from the Williams Crawford Porsche Go-Kart Challenge. The money has gone towards their new rescue unit and the equipment needed to keep Motorsport events as safe as possible throughout the Westcountry and beyond, and we were delighted to contribute to this vital work.

The second presentation was made to Childrens Hospice South West, our chosen charity for 2019. The money came from our Tregrehan Hill Climb in June, as well as the Tombola that we had on the night. The work of this Charity can never be underestimated, and the support they give to families in Cornwall and beyond is vital.

The pictures below were taken on the night by Amy Ewer, and we would like to thank her for capturing the evening on our behalf.
