MSA Trainers Specialist Officials
This is the oldest form of motor sport, which gave rise to hillclimbs, sprints, rallies and autotests.
The competitive element in a trial is the ability to climb gradients of varying difficulty. Each trial has several observed sections on private ground. The organisers try to prevent cars completing (or ‘cleaning’) each section.
There is no timing - the distance covered without stopping determines the winner.
There are three different types of trial, each requiring different vehicles and skills.
