Auto Solo & Auto Tests
AutoSolo in the United Kingdom is a form of Motorsport-based around the principles of autotesting, the main differences being that the tests are run in a forward direction only and are usually slightly faster and more open than traditional Autotests. Courses are usually larger than those for Autotesting, and as the courses are laid out to run in one direction
Autotesting involves a series of tests, generally around traffic cones, to measure precision driving skill. The tests often include stopping with the front and rear wheels straddling a line, and always end stopping in a garage (usually marked out with cones). Sections of each test are usually completed in reverse. Cars involved can be standard road cars or ones specially built for autotest. In either case, the sport is cheap, with entries to events usually costing between £8 and £25. Autotests can take place on either grass or hard surface. Grass Autotests are popular for club events as they are more gentle on tyres and transmissions. Many Clubs run their Grass autotests without any reversing. Championship Autotests in the UK are normally on a hard surface.
A 12-car rally is a type of car rally, often run by motor clubs as a simple and strictly amateur form of the sport. 12-car rallies are run to Navigational Rally rules, which are based on navigational skills rather than speed, and with usually a notable social element too. In the United Kingdom, the rules for 12-cars are governed by the Motor Sports Association UK (MSA) and are as follows: Maximum of 12 competing vehicles per event (hence the name) Generally only standard road cars permitted, not fully prepared cars (this is at the discretion of the organising club, but is widely upheld) Maximum 30 mph average speed only "Plot 'n' bash" navigation only No timing to the second permitted, only to the previous minute "PR" (public relations) work as necessary if the route affects residential areas, this is as for a road rally but the requirements are not quite as strict. Police to be informed of the event, though route information does not need to be submitted and approved Route authorisation must be granted from the MSA's local representative.
