Evening Autotest Series
The TWMC evening autotest series is a low key series where having fun is first and foremost. The series is very popular with four evening events and a Sunday afternoon final. The final is followed by a ‘bring your own’ picnic.
Please note that the entry fees are as follows: Juniors, 14 years of age up to and including 16 year olds = £10.00 Drivers, 17 years to 20 years = £20.00 Adults (21 years and over)= £25.00
Autotests are all about car control. The challenge is to negotiate as quickly as possible a memorised, low-speed course without hitting any marker cones. The entry is divided into classes according to each car’s size and technical specification (front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, length of car and engine size).
You must be at least 16 years old to compete Because Autotests are low-speed events you don’t need special safety gear such as helmets or overalls.
Technical regulations for Autotests are found in section M of the Motorsport UK Yearbook.
In order to compete or passenger in any Autotest a valid Motorsport UK competition licence is now required. For the competitor/passenger just doing CLUB LEVEL AUTOTESTS the new RS Clubman licence, which will be free of charge, is required. If you compete, but don’t currently hold a licence you will need to apply for this.
The RS Clubman licence can be applied for online and aims to encourage more grass roots participation, as well as ensuring all Motorsport UK event competitors are covered by a comprehensive insurance. Additionally, licence holders will have access to Motorsport UK’s Member Benefits Programme that includes the new upgraded personal accident cover.
The application is very straightforward and only takes a couple of minutes to complete. Follow this link: https://www.motorsportuk.org/get-started/2020-rs-clubman-licence/and apply online.
