In keeping with what has now become tradition, after two years exploring Shropshire and its neighbouring counties the Summer Trial moves to a new location for 2022. Our new base in the Grantham area will give us great access to some of the best roads and venues that are available in the interesting and often unexplored county of Lincolnshire. The fact that Lincolnshire is the second largest county in England and that it is predominantly farmland, bodes well for an entertaining event that should enable crews to enjoy uncluttered roads and scenic byways.
By limiting the amount of time spent away from home, the Summer Trial allows crews to enjoy a multi day event while minimising the impact on work and other real-life commitments. In 2022 our timetable will see things reverting to the original and popular format that will enable most crews to travel to the start on the Friday morning and depart for home early on Sunday afternoon. Navigation is straightforward and many chose the event to introduce other family members or colleagues to the sport; others like to take part in order to shake down their cars in preparation for our longer duration events but an enjoyable time is in stall for everyone.

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 2022, 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.
Leg 1 will provide the less experienced crews with the opportunity to settle into the event with one or two tests and non taxing regularities as we loop out and around the local area.
Leg 2 represents the ‘meat’ of the event as we venture further afield into new territory taking in the best venues and sampling the unique countryside and roads that Lincolnshire has to offer.
We conclude proceedings with the final leg which will once again loops out into more new territory before returning to our base for lunch and an awards presentation allowing everyone to head home in the early afternoon.
The Definition of Master’s Class – A master will be defined by both crew members in the seat they have entered the event who have finished first overall on a HERO green or blue standard event, in the top three of a red or black event (including Rally of the Tests in the overall positions including non-eligible cars), received a Gold medal on Le Jog or in the top three of a HRCR National B Road Rally in the last 3 years.
Rooms will be available at an additional cost for Crews that wish to arrive a day early or stay another night after the event. Further details will be available closer to the event.
