Sporting Trials Explained Briefly

Sporting trials is the ultimate development of 2 wheel drive car trials and is unique as motor sports go. Like most trials, it's not about speed.

The aim of a trial is to drive as far as you can over a laid out section without stopping. Each section is marked with poles to form a twisty route up a slippery hillside, sometimes sections will be so slippery and steep that you are unable to walk up them.

To help each driver there is a passenger in the car who moves their weight around to get the best possible traction on each wheel.

The further on a driver gets up a section the lower the score. The driver with the lowest score of the day is the winner.

There is a championship for both drivers and passengers.
