What is a Car Trial?

Car Trials (formally known as PCT's) are without doubt one of the cheapest forms of motorsport and many of todays top drivers more than likely started their careers trying to drive up a muddy bank. To compete a standard car is all that is needed and Car Trials can be started at the age of 15.

The aim is to drive the car between markers over a fixed course, this will often be a slippery field, you must achieve this without striking the marker posts or stopping.

Courses are generally marked out with penalty points ranging from 12 to 0, if you make it through to the end of the course you don't incur any penalties. Several tests will be laid out and the overall winner is the competitor with the smallest number of marks.

Competitors are split into classes, such as engine over driven wheels etc and championship points are awarded on class position, not the overall position. So whatever car you have, your in with a chance.

So as long as you are a member of a member club of the ASWMC, you will be eligible to register for our championship.
