Due to the on going Covid 19 situation and our area being under Tier 4 restrictions for the foreseeable future we have regrettably decided to cancel the Roger Holmes Trial due to run on 24th January.
We do not intend to reschedule the event but expect to run it again on 23rd January 2022.
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 A is especially designed to cater for ordinary road cars, essentially unmodified, which means you can enter using your ‘shopping’ car. Please read the Supplementary Regulations for further information.
For 2021 we could have accepted entries in Class A for Hybrid and electric vehicles with no more than two driven wheels as long the vehicles are unmodified major manufacturers cars.
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 from the same household with them.
