Historic Sporting Trials Association
Many Historic Sports Car Club members have historic Trials cars in which they enjoy competing. The primary aim of the Historic Sporting Trials movement is to provide suitable events, organised by MSUK recognised clubs, in which the sporting trial cars of the 1960’s and middle 1970’s can compete. The observed sections are designed to suit the earlier Historic Class cars equipped with fiddle brakes.
Many competitors have already registered with Purple Lap but if you are one that has not, please do so as soon as possible. Once registered entries to our trials are so much easier – let me know if you want help.
Saturday 15th May 2021
The Midland Trials Car Club will run a historic sporting trial at Long Compton in Warwickshire on Saturday 15th May 2021. We had a provisional date of 8th May, but the racing calendar has changed and the new date of 15th May will allow more of our racing members to enter.

The MSUK Historic Sporting Trials Formula requires the cars should be similar to the cars used in period and defines specific requirements of vehicles which are eligible to compete in Historic Sporting Trials.
Motorsport UK has recently changed the licensing requirements for all competitors on Trials and other non-speed events and applications are now being accepted for these new licences. These Competition Licences are free, mandatory and issued by our governing body.
You can apply online here https://rsclubman.motorsportuk.org/ and we recommend you and your passengers do so immediately.
