Summer Trial 2021

Telford

 

The Perfect Introductory Event

4th to 6th June 2021

The Summer Trial will once again be based in Telford. This gives us excellent access to the wide variety of roads and scenery that Mid and North Wales has to offer but will have a twist to take in some new roads and test venues.

The format of the Summer Trial is designed to minimise the impact on work or other real-life commitments. The event is aimed at those new to rallying, it can also be used as a great way to shake down your car for longer events or as a straightforward no-nonsense introduction to the sport for your partner or other family members.

A prologue takes place on Friday afternoon, this is very straightforward and is designed to ease you into the event. Saturday ups the ante with a full day’s classic motorsport which aims to return to our Telford base at a reasonable time to allow refreshment and a catch up with likeminded people on the days activities (if social distancing rules allow).

Sunday’s competition is scheduled to increase the intensity a little while remaining in the classification of a HERO ‘Green’ event.

The rally comes to a close early on Sunday afternoon with prize giving and a buffet lunch, so you will have time to return at a reasonable hour in readiness for work on Monday.

Navigation will be by straightforward simple instructions. You should expect complexity to increase a little over the weekend to complement the increased skills you will develop during the event. Several driving Tests also form part of the schedule and these will take place on private land where you will be able to enjoy your car at its best.

Why Enter?

The Summer Trial continues to be one of the UK’s favourite events attracting crews from all over Europe, so early entry is advised to avoid disappointment. For 2020, we will again run the Master’s class for the more experienced crews, but navigation is aimed fairly and squarely at newcomers and the less experienced. While Masters will be able to fight for top honours in their class, they will not be eligible for the overall results.

Between 11:30 and 12:30 there will be a chance for novice and newcomer crews to take part in a training session prior to the first leg. 13:31 will see the first car leave the start and head off into North Wales for a relatively easy afternoon to get you into the swing of things.

Leg Two - Gathering Momentum

The better you do on Leg One will determine how early you have to wake up with the overnight leader leaving at 08:00 for a full days competition. Driving Tests and Regularities will take you across the border on a circular route around mid-Wales visiting a number of classic roads and beauty spots. The day concludes with a return to Telford where crews can swap stories and enjoy the buffet before the final day.

Leg Three - Full Swing to The End

A more compact Leg with the intensity increasing towards the conclusion. Around 13:00 the first car will be passing under the arch back at Telford followed by a well-deserved drink where the pressure will build wondering where you have finished in the final standings. The top three will be invited to spray the champagne under the arch before the buffet lunch and awards are presented in good time allowing you enough time to return home that evening.

Vehicle Information

  • All cars will be eligible for overall awards unless the crew are deemed to be ‘Masters’
  • The cars will be split into classes, and may be based on age, cc and body Type
