Miller Ranch Trials was developed as an alternative series to what was presently available in Upstate NY. With rising costs and limited time it seemed riders were having a harder time committing to a Championship Series. At MRT we do a 3 event series every year. This consists of a Spring, Summer, and Fall event.
Since we use the Gate Method of scoring, total accrued points for the season decide year end ranking. Whether you ride 1 event or all 3, accrued points count toward the year end. As such, the more events attended the higher your overall score.
The other advantage to the Gate Scoring is we are able to put on events appealing to both Modern and Vintage Motorcycles. While the classes are separate the sections remain the same. Since you pick the gates you ride there is no forcing riders into places they should not be. The better rider you are the more gates you will have to try in order to set yourself apart from the pack.
In essence Miller Ranch Trials was put together to offer a family friendly and fun alternative to what was presently available.

MRT Changes and Information
To make scoring go a little faster there will now be just 2 classes. You either ride Modern or Vintage. No sub classes within Vintage any longer.
The second change is that you can no longer ride backwards through any gate. This has created confusion in the past so now it should take away any question about what happens when you ride a gate backwards. The result will be a ZERO for the section.
For 2014 I regret to inform you all that the entrance fee will be $20.00. I held off as long as possible but had to do it in order to keep things going.
2013 Rule Change:
A modification to the classes will be tested for the 2013 season. In an effort to get more old iron out of the garages we will add a class to the Vintage Series. This class will be designated Late Model and include any Drum Brake, Air Cooled, Mono Shock motorcycle. In turn we will drop the Air Cooled Mono Shock Class from the Modern Series.
