The Arbuthnot Trophy Trial

The Auto-Cycle Union’s Arbuthnot Trophy Trial is being held whilst this number is in the press. One of the most sporting events in the motor cycling calendar, the Arbuthnot Trial is held annually in memory of Admiral Sir A. K. Arbuthnot, for many years a keen motor cyclist, who was killed at the Battle of Jutland.

It is confined to naval officers and midshipmen on the active list, although there has been some movement to extend its scope to officers in the Royal Naval Reserve and to Naval ratings. This year the Trial is being held amongst the Surrey Hills, with headquarters at the Burford Bridge Hotel. It is a two day event.
