Taster Events are entry-level competitions designed to encourage first-time participation in Motorsport. MSA-registered clubs are permitted to run one such event per year in each discipline for the public and non-club members.

Taster Events can be organised for any of the following disciplines, as per General Regulation D4.5, and will be run at Clubmans permit status.

  • 12 Car Rallies
  • Navigational Scatters
  • Sporting Trials
  • Car Trials
  • AutoSOLO
  • Autotests
  • Production Car Autotests
  • Cross Country Trials (Untimed)
  • Cross Country Tyro Trials
  • Classic Reliability Trials
  • A Veteran Car Rally (Or Run) (R.17.3)
  • Navigational Rallies limited to 20 cars not being part of a championship

To apply for a Taster Event, please apply online and add the words 'Taster Event' to the Event Description/Title of Event. If the event is part of a dual permit, then the Taster Event must be included in the Supplementary Regulations and in the title of the application, such as ‘Autotest - To include Taster Event’.

All competitors must sign on and will be deemed to be a member of the Club for the day. Supplementary Regulations need not be submitted with the application.

If you are interested in running a Taster Event, please contact your local Regional Development Officer (RDO) who will be happy to help.
