Signing on and scrutineering are going to be held at the campsite the night before and at a car park very close to the trials site from 9.15 Sunday morning.

All vehicles will be entering the site at 10am in convoy (if you're late you won't get in). Once on site there will be no vehicles leaving or entering the site before the trial has finished (apart from emergency vehicles which we aren't going to need!!!!) so bring everything you need for the day.

The reason for this is we have to travel through a couple of fields containing a variety of livestock so don't want any mishaps with gates etc...
The car park for scrutineering is approx 10 mins drive from the petrol station in Helmsley and is at SE 613 886 or YO62 5HH. Map showing the meeting point here...
