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.

Monty Peters Historic Sporting Trial Regs 11-12-2021

I suggest you enter ASAP as this is always a popular event. Please use Purple Lap.

Due to the current Covid issues we are considering the catering arrangements – those who have been before will be aware of the considerable fug that can build up in the meeting room when everybody is there and the log burner going full blast, as for social distancing!!!! 

Ian Wright has said that competitors can leave their trailers overnight on Friday.  Offers of help with marshalling would be greatly appreciated.

As always, we are looking for marshals to be a vital part of the trial. 

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.

If you wish to apply using a paper form you can download the form and return by post to Motorsport UK here https://www.motorsportuk.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/03_CLUBMAN_FORM.pdf .

If you hold a licence for Sprints, Hill Climbs or Racing this will be valid for non-speed events.
