The VSCC Cotswold Trial was held last weekend at Prescott Hill in England and we have some wonderful photos from Stefan Marjoram, along with two very good videos (below) filmed by Janet Wright. Both give you a very good feel for this very unique British form of vintage motor sports which the whole family can join in on. The Janet Wright films are in parts I and II below and capture the action on the hill.
From information about Trialing with the VSCC: Trials are one of the oldest forms of motor sport and these “grass roots” events have paved the way for the birth of Hill climbs, sprints, rallies and driving tests. In essence, competing cars must climb sections of varying gradient and difficulty, being marked from 1 to 25 depending on how far you get. Each trial will typically have between 8 – 14 sections for a one day, and 14 – 18 for a two day trial. All the VSCC’s Trials are Production Car Trials, which broadly speaking means that most road going cars will be suitable (depending more on whether the owner want to cover his pride and joy in mud!).
