Are you interested in Sporting Trials?

If so there are 3 ways to become involved.

1. Come along and spectate - with the proviso that you let us know you're coming.

2. Come along and take part by marshalling or passengering. This would be wonderful. Again, we need to know if this is your plan so we can make the necessary arrangements.

3. Come along to a 'Taster' Day where you would be able to drive a trials car in competition conditions alongside an experienced driver.

Our Club events take place in the Penrith - Kendal region.

If you think you might be interested message us using the form at the bottom of this page.

About Sporting Trials

S.C.T. or Sporting Car Trials is a very simple form of motor sport. It consists of a driving test with no constraints on time or speed, all that is required is to score as few penalty points as possible. The course is laid out into different “sections” which are demarcated by 12 gates which in turn are numbered from 12 to 1. The driver attempts each section and has to try and drive through the section and neither stop nor hit any of the gates, to do so would incur the score of that particular gate.

 

The cars are controlled by a conventional steering wheel generally with a knob on the wheel as steering is a one handed affair, and two “fiddle brakes” which are independent brakes attached to the rear driving wheels, these allow the driver to control wheel spin and to allow the car to turn almost within its own length. The driver is assisted by a passenger who uses his body weight to stabilize the car.

 

The car’s construction is governed by the rules in the MSA blue book and mainly consist of engine size and placement and seating position and wheelbase and track. Also all cars must carry a functioning spare wheel.

 

All cars use standard 165x80x15 R type radials intended for road use and have a differential which is “free and uninterrupted".

 

SCT is possibly one of the cheapest form of “specialist” motor sport and allows home built cars and professionally constructed cars to compete at the same level. One of the joys of this sport is that it is possible to compete in a car built 30 years ago and win against brand new machinery. The rules have had no changes in that time which would give the newer car any major advantage.

 

If you wish to attend any of our competitions we would be very pleased to see you there, simply use the maps to find the venue, most competitions start around 10:30 hrs.
