Trials form the staple of the All Wheel Drive Club calendar with an event taking place somewhere in the country almost every weekend.

There are different trials classes to suit every type of 4x4 vehicle each running over terrain suitable for that particular class of vehicle whether it be Standard or highly Modified.

If you want to put your driving skills and your 4x4 to the test then Trials will provide the means to do it. Drivers from the age of 13 are catered for in Tyro Trials which often run alongside the other classes over more appropriate terrain.
