MGCC: Midland Centre, Taster Trial in Bromsgrove, Sunday 30th April
On Sunday, April 30th, 2017 at East Lodge Farm, near Bromsgrove, the Midland Centre will run a single-venue Taster Trial on private land. The objective is to involve newcomers, youngsters and adults who might have heard about trials but haven’t taken it any further yet. Also, it is an opportunity for experienced drivers to bring their boys and girls and to help on the day. The MSA acknowledges that clubs need to be able to attract new faces and on a one-off annual basis will issue a permit that allows non-club members, that is members of the public, to take part in a taster event whilst being covered by the MSA public liability insurance. It will be a production car event, which means that standard road cars are both eligible and suitable. We typically see Rover25, MGFs and Citroen Saxo among other small cars competing at the Autumn Trial; all are competent, handy vehicles. The course will be grass and mud, essentially non-damaging. For more information please visit www.mg-cars.org.uk/mgccmidlandcentre.
The format will include an explanation of the different types of trial, the classes, how to prepare a vehicle, completing paperwork, driving instruction, driving practice and some good takeaways as a reminder of the event, and if you’ve enjoyed the experience we hope you’ll join in again.
