The Derek Merson Exmoor Clouds Classic Trial

Our next major event is the Exmoor Clouds Clasic Trial on Sunday 15th October. This will be the 46th running of this popular event, open to both cars and motorcycles. A round of both the ACTC trials championship and the REIS ASWMC Classic Trials championship. This year the event starts and finishes once again at the Rest & Be Thankful at Wheddon Cross, with new sections included in the 70 mile route over Exmoor.

Regulations are available now


The Organising Committee of the Somerset Stages Rally have decided to have a "Year Out" in 2018, which would have been our 40th running of the Somerset Stages Rally.
After considerable discussions we have reluctantly come to this decision. The factors creating this are mainly due to the very much reduced entry level for our 2017 Event. The reduced entry level trend is occurring generally across all gravel events for reasons well known by all concerned. However, the organising costs are continuing to rise each year, jeopardising the financial side of the Rally. Click here for Press Release


Regulations are now available for The Exmoor Targa Rally on 7th October, orgainised by Tavern Motor Club with support from Burnham-on-Sea and Minehead Motor Clubs.

Lyn Valley Classic

Sun11th June 2017

Lynton - Lynmouth

On the 11th June we ran a Classic Tour, starting from Raleghs Cross Inn ,approx 50 cars and one lorry entered and after a scenic route finished in Lynton where the main street was closed to through traffic and the Minehead Motor Club Tour joined the Lyn Valley Classic display. Cars were escorted to Lynmouth to park on the front. There was live music and entertainment around the town and green, which all added up to a very enjoyable day out. Here we show a few photos from the start of the event at Raleghs Cross
