Following two successful years in Oswestry, A Novice Trial moves to a new home for 2021. Our new base in Bicester will provide a fantastic location for the training elements as well as great roads for the practical side. The format of A Novice Trial is designed to explain and demonstrate the skills required for classic car rallying in a fun and informative way. The event is aimed at those new to rallying, or as an introduction to the sport for your partner or other family members.
The event begins on the Friday evening with a seminar covering the basics. Saturday will alternate practical and theory to cement the new found skills. Culminating on Sunday with a mini rally so test those new found skills and show you exactly what to expect on your next adventure with HERO-ERA. The action concludes early on Sunday afternoon with prize giving and a buffet lunch so you’ll have time to return at a reasonable hour in readiness for work on Monday. You will leave with all the tools necessary to tackle a HERO-ERA Blue or Green Event, such as the Summer Trial or HERO Challenge, ensuring that you not only enjoy the event but also give you a chance to work up the leaderboard.

The Rally element of A Novice Trial will take us North from Bicester to enjoy two regularities before a coffee halt at the picturesque Red Lion in Helidon. The route back to the HERO-ERA Headquarters will be a little more challenging with two more regularities, one of which will be map based. With expert tuition the day before this will not be as daunting as it may sound and with three tests on-site to round up the competition, you will get a good feel for the enjoyment that this type of rallying has to offer. A buffet lunch will be provided as crews swap details of the trials and achievements of the morning.
