As you may have all noticed, there has been a lot of nothing in the public domain of late regarding the 2021 Brighton Speed Trials (scheduled for Sat 4th September).

Some info has recently made it to the web, so here are the links to both the Brighton and Hove Motor Club (B&HMC), and the Sprint Section of the Vintage Motorcycle Club (VMCC) which are probably the best place to find the most up to date info.

Wednesday 18 August.

The news is the 2021 Speed Trials will be running on Saturday 4th September, however it will be doing so without the motorcycles due to safety concerns following an ACU track inspection, the findings of which prevented them from issuing a Track Certificate or Permit this year.

Further information relating to the bikes can be found here on the VMCC Sprint Section facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/vmccsprint/


Here's wishing the Brighton and Hove Motor Club a fast, safe and successful 2021 Brighton Speed Trials.

Well done to the Brighton and Hove Motor Club for staging the event at such notice!

To run a motorsport event, there's a lot of behind-the-scenes folk who deserve thanks, and, as always, there are the band of marshalls who deserve gratitude too, as without them, we wouldn't have these events.

Here're some internet links to the Frosts-sponsored 2021 Brighton Speed Trials.
