The Winter Trial 2017 Let's go East
We start on January 22 - 2017 at the traditional Chateau st Gerlach near Maastricht and the finish will be on Friday, January 27 near Salzburg in Austria.
The first recce took place in June. Bart and Mark have found new roads for you to discover, new hotels to experience and new lunches to enjoy. You will explore territories wich are not visited by tourist nor by business men and we cross borders at remote and hidden crossings.
It promisses to be yet another great adventure on wich you will be able to embark.
Even though The Winter Trial is an event driven under snowy conditions (hopefully) and therefore possibly tough enough for most of you, it is also a very sociable event where you will meet old friends and certainly will make some new friends in the late hours at the bar.
Mark and Timo are set to do the 2nd and final recce of the route in December. More news after that!
What is new in 2017 ?
1. In the last Winter Trial we where pleased to see a slowly growing group of younger participants. This is great for our sport, because the great names from the fifties and sixties are unfortunately fading away.
2. After three years in the Scandinavian countries the Winter Trial is looking for new "old" territory. So we will go east. The territory will consist of Germany - Czech Republic - Austria, but the official route will remain secret until 3 weeks before the start.
3. As always the route will consist of some 30 regularity sections, half a dozen tests plus two night loops for the Trial class.
