GENERAL        TYRO


What Events do we do.....?

Try Your Rover Offroad (TYRO) Trial

What is a TYRO trial?

To compete in the TYRO Trial you need to be A member of an ALRC Club. It is ideal for all the family to take part in and the non damaging sections can be driven in any Land Rover from Series I, to Freelander or Range Rover Sport. By club agreement, 14 year old unlicensed drivers are able to drive in a TYRO. If you want a bit of fun at no risk to the vehicle other than a quick wash this is the event for you. 

How does the event work?
Each event will consist of a number of sections. Each section is made up from gates formed by two canes. The gates are numbered in a descending order from 12 to 1. The driver starts from the 12 gate and then follows a defined path from gate to gate without stopping or touching any of the canes. If the vehicle stops the driver gets penalty points which corresponds to the value of the next gate. If the vehicle touches a cane then the penalty value is the same as that gate number.

The winner is the person who after driving all of the sections has the lowest number of penalty points. Dead easy!!! 
Prior to turning up for scrutineering please ensure your vehicle complies with the ALRC RTV Regulations

You will also need to read Leicestershire and Rutland Land Rover Club Supplementary Regulation that apply to these events. 




Road Tax Vehicle (RTV) Trial

What is an RTV trial?

RTV events require a road taxed vehicle - taxed, insured and have a MOT certificate.
Please feel free to contact any member of the committee to clarify any details you are unsure of.

Tyres can be standard road tyres, although on the muddier sites you will prefer something a bit more aggressive, although a set of all-terrain middling pattern may be adequate. We try and lay events out to be non-damaging, although, of course, accidents can happen.


You will be scrutineered to make sure nothing is hanging off or about to fall off. The scrutineer has a check list which he goes through. 

If you haven't tried it and would like to, come along to one of the events. If you want to watch first and see how its done, there are plenty of people who will give you some advice. If you are a member full or social you may be able to passenger a current drive to get the experience and tips from the passenger seat. You can always have an experience drive to be your navigator to assist you on your first trial.

Cross Country Vehicle Trial (CCV) Trial

What is a Cross Country Vehicle trial?

CCVT stands for Cross Country Vehicle Trial. This event is similar to the RTV but the courses are far more demanding on both the driver and the vehicle. Most of the CCVT vehicles are not road registered and all must follow strict rules laid down by the Association of Rover Clubs. 

The main alteration to a standard vehicle would be the addition of a roll cage which is required due to the nature of the competition. Tyres tend to be aggressive mud patterns with Mud Pluggers and Diamonds both being popular choices.
Your CCVT vehicle must have a ALRC log book and the roll cage tagged. The log book is not the same as a road vehicle log book it is issued by the ALRC by a scrutineer and the vehicle is check periodically as per ALRC regulations.
