The UK round of the FIM World Tri­als Cham­pi­onship moves to York­shire, at Park­wood Off-road Cen­tre for 2016. The venue is si­t­u­ated be­tween Leeds and Brad­ford. York­shire has a strong tri­als tra­di­tion, and it’s many years since an out­door world cham­pi­onship trial was held in the north­ern county.

Event di­rec­tor John Ker­win said, “The trial needed a move, and this venue fits the bill tick­ing all the boxes for a WTC round. Sec­tion de­signer Gra­ham Jarvis has made many vis­its to the venue and has de­signed twelve new fan­tas­tic haz­ards. Work has al­ready started on the con­struc­tion of the haz­ards which will be a mix­ture of nat­u­ral streams, gul­lies and banks en­hanced with ad­di­tional rocks, as we did with Pen­rith; it’s all about the vi­sion and turn­ing it into re­al­ity”.

The York­shire world trial at Park­wood will take place in July, start­ing with the first visit to the UK of a round of the very pop­u­lar ladies’ WTC headed by the de­fend­ing cham­pion Great Bri­tain’s Emma Bris­tow on 15th July, and fol­lowed by the men’s on 17th & 18th mak­ing it a su­perb fes­ti­val of tri­als.
