Autotests are all about car control. The challenge is to negotiate as quickly as possible a memorised, low-speed course without hitting any markers.
Drivers compete on courses – usually on tarmac or grass areas such as car parks or smooth fields – marked out by plastic pylons or cones. They tackle a number of tests, with two attempts at each. The driver with the lowest accumulated time is the winner, although penalties are incurred for hitting cones, failing to stop on a line, or for taking the wrong route.
Cars tackle an uphill course one-by-one, with the quickest time dictating the winner. Competitors are given practice runs before the competition starts, and you’ll get a minimum of two competitive runs, with your best time counting in the final results. The good thing is that if you make a mistake first time out, you still have a chance of making amends on later runs.
Stage Rallies take place in the forests, single venue hard surface and Closed Roads and comprise loops of competitive sections, or stages, with the winner being the crew (driver and co-driver) that completes them all in the lowest aggregate time. The co-drivers read route direction notes issued by the organisers on both the stages and the linking road sections to ensure the car is heading the right way.
For Road Rallies on the public highway the emphasis is as much on navigation as driving skill. The navigator, who uses Ordnance Survey maps to direct the driver around the route, must be very careful with timing – it’s just as bad if you check in too early as it is to check in too late at a time control.
There are several different forms of road-rallying such as Targa Rallies, Touring Assemblies with no timing, Economy Runs, Historic Rallies for classic cars and more competitive night events, where the emphasis is on good navigation and time-keeping. Lots of well-known rally co-drivers cut their teeth in Britain’s road-rally scene
prints are typically held on racing circuits, as well as disused airfields, and with venues spread right across the country you won’t have to travel too far to have a go yourself.
Competitors are given practice runs before the competition proper starts. Usually you will get two runs against the clock, with your best time counting in the final results. The best part about Sprinting is that if you get your first run wrong you still have a chance of making amends on the second run.
Trials are all about finding grip in order to progress as far as possible along a course laid out on a hill side. There are three main types of Trials: Car Trials, Sporting Trials and Classic Trials.
Car Trials are for the driver who wants to compete in a road car. It’s a great place to start and, as a passenger is required, it can be a team effort.
Sporting Trials are the same principle but the cars are designed especially for the purpose. The highly developed cars can climb amazing gradients, and with an active passenger tend to be spectacular and very exciting.
Classic Trials are the original form of Trials. The cars tend to date from as early the 1930s but there is an increasing number of more modern cars taking part. What makes this branch different is that the competitive sections are longer and events are run at multiple venues so road mileage is involved.
