A classic trial is a low-key, track based motorsport
event designed for road going classic cars. A classic trial
is a time trial not a race. In a classic trial each driver pre-selects
his or her lap time and during the trial seeks to exactly achieve
that time. Classic Trials are run under MotorSport New Zealand
Regularity Trial Regulations.
Regularity Trials were first run in the UK in the 1950's and
were brought to New Zealand by TACCOC in the mid 1990ís. TACCOC
formulated the Regularity Trial Regulations section of the Motorsport
New Zealand Handbook and introduced the event at the Whenuapai
Wings and Wheels meetings. TACCOC have been running Regularity
Trials and more lately Classic Trials since the events introduction.
The TACCOC concept of quality classic cars competing in an introductory
level, but competitive Motorsport event for the enjoyment of
the driver and the viewing public remains the core principle
behind Classic Trials.
The Classic Trial Register was formed in 2002 and has been
running the Classic Trial Championship since the beginning of
2003. The Classic Trial Championship is sponsored by Apparelmaster.
