I'm trying to establish when the Altcar trials were held, for my information and someone else who has been looking in to this. We have established the following:-
14th August 1948
23rd July 1949
22nd July 1950
12th May 1951 - Waterloo and DMC Speed Trials held (see https://forums.autos.../#entry8301708)
28th July 1951 - appears to be a motorcycle only meeting
10th May 1952
26th July 1952
There are some hints that other dates were used:
October 1950 - reported in Autosport in the 20th October edition that a car and bike meeting was held
1951 - reported in Autosport in the 14th December edition that a car and motorcycle meeting was held
A post in https://forums.autos...r/#entry2653640 also states that Claude Tipper won at Altcar in 1950 in a Monaco-Norton F3, but no date given.
Does anyone know of any further dates, or have access to local newspapers which may give reports? Any further details on these events would be gratefully received!
