What is Autotesting?
Autotest events consist of a number of short courses or “tests” made up usually of traffic cones. Competitors are given a defined route, which they complete against the clock, using forward and reverse gears. Time penalties are given for collisions with bollards or failing to complete the course correctly.
What type of car?
Nothing special, in fact any car that is deemed safe by the organisers. There are people out there competing in cars they have bought for as little as 25 pounds.
Autotesting is “grass roots” motorsport. Entry fees are cheap, events are held on private property, no special licence is required at inter-club level, no special car is needed. This type of motorsport is without any doubt, the best and safest way to learn car control, and a great introduction to other forms of motorsport.
