NotesThe HERO Summer Trial provides all the elements of the longer and tougher events, but has less impact on the working week.

The first few events were based in Worcester and were a resounding success. Continuing HERO`s theme of finding new challenges, the event moved to Goodwood for 2011 & 2012 and then moved to South Wales for 2014 - missing 2013 due to the merger of the CRA & HERO. HERO`s Summer Trial

As well as the competitive element of the Summer Trial, there is a tour section for those who wish to join in the excitement and social side of the event. This is purely a tour, your vehicle needs no special preparation to take part.

The Summer Trial is the perfect way to start your adventure into historic rallying! The event is aimed at those new to rallying, it can also be used as a great way to shake down your car for longer events or introduce your partner or a family member to the sport. The format of the event is designed so less impact is placed on your work commitments, a prologue takes part on Friday afternoon, this is generally straightforward and eases you into the Summer Trial. Saturday is a full day`s rallying, Sunday, as a rule, generally finishes in the early afternoon, a prize giving and buffet lunch then allows you to be back at work on the Monday.
