What is a…
NAVIGATIONAL SCATTER :
An event held on the public highway. A test of navigational and driving skills where competitors visit 75% of specified references in any order they wish. Held on winter evenings lasting about 2 hours.
A test of driving skill held on a sealed surface such as a car park. The competition consists of driving through and around cones, garages and slaloms timed to the second. Held on summer evenings or Sunday afternoons.
Like an Autotest but with the emphasis on accuracy as opposed to time.
GRASS AUTOTEST :
Like an Autotest but held on a grass surface, so slower and slipperier.
PRODUCTION CAR TRIAL(PCT) :
A competition of driving skill involving trying to drive a car up a sloping twisting course to reach the top. The further up you can take the car the less penalties you attract. Usually held on Sundays.
ROAD RALLY :
Held on the public highway (regulated by the MSA and with routes approved by the appropriate agencies). A rally of approx. fifty cars competing on all classes of roads starting on a Saturday night and finishing around dawn on Sunday.
STAGE RALLY :
Held on private property such as Forestry Commission land or disused airfields. There are many types of event but you will need a specially prepared car to take part.
A speed trial against the clock on racetracks and disused airfields. Classes for everything from standard “shopping” cars to full blown racing cars.
Basically a sprint that goes uphill! Uses the same classes of car as sprints.
Where you can help to run an event, maybe a stage start or finish, and learn what mistakes not to make.
TABLETOP RALLY :
A Chance to hone your navigational skills and mental agility as if on a road rally, but without leaving the comfort of the pub. Held on Club Nights.
BAR QUIZ :
Answer questions on topics, generally but not always Motorsport related. The Club also competes in an annual inter-club challenge.
PHOTO QUIZ :
Like a Bar Quiz but with questions based on photographs.
