Roger Holmes Trial 20th Jan 2019

The Roger Holmes Trial is held on the third Sunday in January at Harlton near Cambridge. It is a round of the AMSC Trials Challenge and ASEMC Car Trial Championship.

The trial has a format of a set of 5 tests marked out by canes  on the hill with a mixture of bends and slopes to test the driver’s ability to keep going within the course and without losing forward motion.  This requires a variety of subtle techniques and some not subtle. The tests are repeated usually 5 times through the day.

There are 4 classes of vehicle that can enter.  Class 1 is especially designed to cater for ordinary road cars, essentially unmodified, which means you can enter using your ‘shopping’ car.  The scoring system means that these entries have as much chance of the overall win as do ‘specials’ in other classes.

This is a great way to get cheaply, safely and quickly into competing in motorsport. Young drivers from 14 years old can enter as long as they have a suitably qualified adult with them.

The 2018 Roger Holmes Trial was unfortunately cancelled due to excessive rain that had made the hill too slippery to use safely. We are sorry to all of you who had intended to compete, marshal or otherwise enjoy the event. It returns on 20 January 2019.

The Regulations and Entry Forms are below.  The entry form will submit your entry directly to the Entries Secretary.  However, below this form is a downloadable pdf should you wish to complete the entry offline.

If you are not entering we would really appreciate you help in marshaling on the event.
