Wonderfully silly mud-plugging Historic Sporting Trials 2020 Calendar.


Once upon a time covered by the BBC and commentated by 'Pants on Fire' Murray Walker.....

If anyone is interested in watching (or even marshalling) some seriously daft antics of the 1950's inspiration of the Seven in gangly 16inch-wheel mode with drivers and their bouncy passengers trying to negotiate trees, hills, ditches and any other form of geological mess here's a list of their dates and venues for this year. Come along, smile, shake your head and go away thinking... "Loonies". 

 Either that or go away thinking " Now, how can I convert/upgrade my Seven into a Trials Car"...!         Dikko.

    Motorsport UK and the new RS Clubman Licence    

From 2020 all drivers and passengers in trials will have to have a Motorsport UK licence.

As our events are run under a Clubman permit all competitors will need an RS Clubman licence (unless they hold and can produce a current higher status Interclub, National or International Motorsport UK licence). The RS Clubman licence is available to all competitors FREE OF CHARGE.

You can read all about it at www.motorsportuk.org/Competitors/Competition-Licences/   If you follow the links www.motorsportuk.org/get-started/2020-rs-clubman-licence you will be able to apply for the RS Clubman licence online

   Passengers must be a member of the organising club or invited club

This is a new requirement imposed by Motorsport UK. The Midland Trials Car Club will offer an annual passenger membership of £2  which will allow passengers to take part in any of our trials throughout the year. MTCC are organising our Sywell Trial on Sunday the 9th February and they have included a section on the entry form to allow passengers to join the club.

If you are into getting cold and muddy, look up ACTC Classic Trials.

Or the MCC - thats the Motorcycling Club.  Their Exeter trial has just run.  Lands End and Edinburgh ones coming up.  I'm quite pleased to have a Gold, a Silver and a Bronze from those events in 2009 - I'm hoping to go back try for three Golds in one year sometime . . .
