Welcome to the ACTC website

On this site, you should be able to access all the information needed to begin in our sport, or to participate as an organiser, marshal or simply as a spectator.

You will see from our calendar that our member clubs hold events throughout the country, so no matter where you are located, there will hopefully be a trial near you.

If you are looking to participate for the first time, you will find that while a lot of members like the competitive element, everyone likes to see newcomers to the sport and will take the time to help with advice whenever possible.

Although as an association we run our annual championship, you are in no way obligated to compete when registering. Many of our members join in order to keep up-to-date with what events are taking place and to receive our excellent
quarterly magazine, “Restart”.

We have eight different classes, catering for all manner of vehicles. These range from modern front wheel drive saloons, to purpose built trials specials. We welcome sports cars, conventional saloon cars, rear engine cars, kit cars and of course pre-1941 cars. So no matter what you prefer to drive there is almost certainly a class which will suit.

Our Pouncy League for the motorcycle competitors is well established and continues to gain momentum. Here you will find events suitable for trail bikes, sidecar outfits and classic motorcycles of the type ridden in the ISDT events of the fifties and sixties.

Alongside our championship trophies, we also have a number of discretionary awards, giving everyone the opportunity to take home some silverware regardless of the competitiveness of the car, bike, rider or driver. Even the hardworking navigators have their own league to compete in, allowing their efforts to be rewarded alongside the drivers.

We look forward to seeing you somewhere on the hills!
