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 complete an Organising Permit Application form, which can be found here.

The ‘Title of Event’ box should be completed with the discipline name, followed by ‘Taster 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’.

Taster Event permits cannot be applied for online but may be emailed to simon.fowler@msauk.org. 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.
