PRESS RELEASE from the Sporting Car Trials Committee
The Sporting Car Trials Committee have just received approval to issue 1 day junior clubman competition licences to applicants aged between 10 and 14, subject to the applicants passing the attached evaluation test of competency. An analysis indicates that there are approximately 10 parties who are interested in and eligible for the test.
The first such evaluation test has been arranged for 11am on Saturday 30/8/2014 at Gallows Hill, Newcastle, Co Wicklow by kind permission of Mr. King. (Leave M11 at Junction 13 for Newcastle and take the R772 for approx 1km towards Newcastle and look for an arrow on your left for the gate into the venue). Regulations for this event will be posted on the MEC website at the beginning of August.
Applicants must be accompanied at all times in their trials car by their parent or guardian who must hold a valid competition licence. Due to the probable difference in size between the regular adult driver and the junior applicant, it may be necessary to make temporary adjustments to the pedals, seat, seat belt etc. Two trials drivers, Tony Wilson (087-2577368) and Paul Needham (086-8577808) are available to provide advice and assistance. There will be a safety check before commencing the evaluation test to ensure the applicant is a good fit and can comfortably operate the controls.
For more information contact the phone numbers or web sites on page 3 of the evaluation test form.
