The Farnborough Motor Club provide a Grass Autotest. It’s your opportunity to have a go at motorsport in your own car.
Autotesting offers an easy start in the sport. You can compete in your everyday road car and require no previous knowledge, training, special safety equipment or even a Competition Licence. Entry fees for these types of event are very reasonable.
The events are on either tarmac or grass with the course laid out with cones. Competitors follow a set route that involves maneuvering both forward and in reverse. A diagram of the course is provided so you don’t get too lost!
The test is timed with the quickest time wining. If a driver hits a cone or takes the wrong route, they pick up a 10 second penalty for every mistake. So both speed and accuracy are the name of the game.
If you’d like a gentler introduction to AutoTesting, they’ll be passenger rides in one of our cars, find out how it feels from inside the car.
The Taster Autotest costs £15.00 for 4 goes at the test. Passenger rides will be £5.00 for 2 laps of the course.
The fastest time of the day, set by a member of the public, will win a year’s free membership of Farnborough District Motor Club. This’ll enable them to come and sample some of the great range of motorsport events in the UK.
