Databases updated (again)

I have just completed, and published, updates to the Trials Events Database and Trials Sections Database. The Events Database now lists over 1400 events, and the Sections Database now lists over 1700 event/section combinations, with my normal caveat that both are still very much work-in-progress. You can go straight to the latest printouts from these links:

Since the last update (on 1st July), and in addition to the seven events listed here, I am now up-to-date with all the information that I currently hold for the:

Exmoor, Northern, and Ilkley/Yorkshire Dales Trials.

The Exmoor Clouds is next on my list for action.

 

Databases updated

I have just completed, and published, major updates to the Trials Events Database and Trials Sections Database. The Events Database now lists over 1400 events, and the Sections Database now lists over 1600 event/section combinations, with my normal caveat that both are still very much work-in-progress. You can go straight to the latest printouts from these links:

I am now up-to-date with all the information that I currently hold for the seven trials listed below (so if you know any more, or have any corrections, please Contact Me via the email address in the right-hand column):

Allen, Clee Hills, Cotswold Clouds, Kimber, Kyrle, Mechanics, and Torbay.

I will be steadily working-through the other ACTC ‘One Day’ trials over the next month or so, then moving on to the three MCC trials, and finally returning to tidy-up the sections for the ‘Historic’ events.

Databases updated

I have just published updates to both the Trials Events Database and the Trials Sections Database. The Events Database now lists over 1400 events, and the Sections Database nearly 1500 event/section combinations, with my normal caveat that both are still very much work-in-progress.

Although only a small number of new event/section combinations have been added to the Sections Database since the last update, there is a lot of previously ‘unknown’ information now added to those sections which are shown. Certainly, anyone working to a previous version should download the latest version.

Trials Events Database

As many of you will know, ACTC Chairman Dave Haizelden and ACTC Website Supremo James Shallcross have been updating the Events section of the ACTC Website to include one-page-per-year going right back to the start of the ACTC Championship in 1984, and earlier. Each page lists the dates, where known, of both the Championship and non-Championship events, and the intention is to publish as many of the Results Sheets as can be dug-out of competitors’ garages, lofts, and storage boxes.

The Coronavirus Lockdown has provided a good excuse for competitors to spend their time doing that digging-out and the number of Results Sheets available on the ACTC Website is now truly remarkable.

As well as providing Dave and James with a lot of the dates, and some of the results sheets, I have been working on a parallel exercise and can now publish my Trials Events Database. As ever, this is work-in-progress and I will be republishing the printout on a regular basis.

I have also updated, and republished, all the events pages on this website – see the pull-down menu under ‘The When’ above – but I have had to remove the spreadsheets which listed which sections were used for which year of each event. I have added so much information to these spreadsheets over the last few months that they have become far too large for sensible publication. As an example, the spreadsheets for each of the three MCC events now list 100+ sections over 100+ years – that’s a big spreadsheet!

Trials Sections Database

I have made some minor changes to the Trials Sections Database page and published an updated printout from the Database – all 32 pages and 1150+ sections of it. Those familiar with this ridiculously ambitious project will notice few changes to the published data, although this is now displayed in a new format. I still have a LOT of information to add, and there are still a large number of inconsistencies to be ironed-out but, step-by-step, is slowly getting-there.

Update 6 September 2019 09:00:

Minor updates to both page and printout.
