The trial will start at 9.15 am from The Lanes Hotel, West Coker, Dorset, 2miles to the west of Yeovil on the A30(MR 194 518137) and finish at the end of the last section Hell Ladder Lane (MR 183/647320)  in the late afternoon. The Lanes Hotel is also the venue for our annual informal diner. We have negotiated a very good deal with the hotel for the whole weekend, which includes bed and breakfast for the Friday and Saturday nights and dinner for Saturday night. Please book your accommodation and meals direct with the hotel. Details will be found on the entry form. We also hope that, as usual, local members, family and friends and competitors not staying at the hotel will join us for the Saturday dinner in which case please book your dinners through the entry form.

The trial includes mostly familiar sections and as ever, the route will take you along approximately 80 miles of charming rural lanes with splendid views.  The sections and the special tests provide that competitive spice beloved of all true MG drivers, yet remain suitable for all cars whether concours or “well used”.  In addition to classes for all types of MG and similar pre-war sports cars, there is a class,  with its own award, for non-MG’s. As this year is the 90th Anniversary of the M type Midget (the first of a long line of MG Midget Sports Cars) we have decided to award a special one-off trophy to the best performance to the driver of an MG M type Midget.

As last year we have striven to provide a route that is non-damaging for all cars. We believe that we have been able to provide an event similar to that enjoyed by the competitors in the first “Kimber Trial” in 1937. Then Clubmen drove to the event in their everyday cars, mainly MG Midgets and expected them to still be available for work on Monday morning.

On the morning of Sunday 14th April there will be a Gymkhana at Rocke’s Barn, Butleigh, the home of Barry Foster and Hamish McNinch. There is ample room for parking trailers.  However please note that this event will only take place providing there are a minimum of ten paid up entries by the closing date of entries.

We look forward to seeing you, preferably as a competitor, but failing that as a Marshal. Any offers for marshalling will be greatly appreciated. Please contact Bruce Weston on 01963 440941 or e-mail:



                2) ENSURE YOU COMPLY WITH THE INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS (appendix 2 page 405 in the Motorsport UK yearbook.


 ALL COMPETITORS who sign on are covered by Lockton MIS Motorsport for third party RTA cover for this event, irrespective of whether they already have this cover included in their normal insurance for using the car on the road.
