Roger Holmes Trial 17th March 2024

The 202 Roger Holmes Trial  will be held on Sunday 17th March at its usual Harlton venue .
(CB23 1HA)

The regulations linked below and the entries are now open using the form below.

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 will be repeated at least 3 times through the day.

The entrants are to be divided into 4 classes of vehicle:

Class A is especially designed to cater for ordinary modern road-going cars, essentially unmodified, which means you can enter using your ‘shopping’ car. Hybrid and electric vehicles can be used in this class.

Classes B, C and D are for mass-produced cars of any age and some modifications are allowed. They don’t need to be road legal.

Class E is for limited production cars and one-off ‘specials’.

The scoring system used in Trials means that entries in any class have an equal chance of the overall win. 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.
