Cross Country Vehicle Trial

CCVs are a more difficult event and competition vehicles are to a different specification to RTVs. This includes having a full roll cage fitted that must be to strict specifications, plus they must be fitted with a fire extinguisher and spill kit. To compete at ALRC events all CCV vehicles must have a current ALRC log book, issued by a log book scrutineer who will check that the vehicle complies with the regulations required. A list of these scrutineers can be found at www.alrc.co.uk/lbs.htm

Again, CCV trials consist of a number of sections made up of pairs of sticks or canes, known as ‘gates’, defining the route. This involves precision driving, where competitors attempt to navigate their vehicle through a dozen gates without touching any of them or stopping. Please note that one ‘shunt’ ie. one reverse manoeuvre, is allowed for long wheel based vehicle per section. If the section is completed without stopping or touching a cane, the driver gets a ‘clear’ which is zero points. This is not a timed event, and winner is the driver who scores the lowest points.

Severe ground conditions is likely to be used for CCVs, running the risk of roll overs!

Trophies are awarded in classes according to various eligibility categories, dependent on vehicle length, engine type and size, and what degree of modification has been made to the vehicle.

Drivers must be a full or second member of a club and hold a current driving licence, plus CCVs can be driven by those aged 15 and over, or those with no driving licence, if they have competed in four or more RTVs (young and unqualified drivers will have their driving experience recorded in a log book that will be issued at their first event). These drivers must be a full or second member of a club, be accompanied by a passenger who holds a full driving licence who has experience in off road driving, is a member of a MSA registered club, and moves the vehicle between sections.

A family member of 14 years and over can sit in a CCV, and details of membership types can be found under the Membership tab.

CCVs cost £25 when pre booked, and £35 if paid on the day.
