The Cross Country Pathway

TYRO TRIAL

Tyro – meaning a beginner – events provide an excellent starting point if you would like to try your road going vehicle out off-road. These events are aimed at young drivers or novice drivers in newer vehicles, where gentle sections are taxing enough to get to grips with the vehicle without inflicting damage.

The event comprises of multiple sections. Each section usually has 12 pairs of markers or gates. Competitors attempt to drive between the gates without stopping or hitting a gate. Each pair of gates decreases in value from 12 to 1. The object is to get as far round the section as possible, ultimately receiving ‘0’ for an error free drive.

The sections are set out across open ground with the intention of testing driver and vehicle without the risk of damage. Varying terrain is used to test the drivers ability. This type of event gives a good introduction to the trials system of gates and scoring that is employed in Cross Country Vehicle events.

CROSS COUNTRY VEHICLE TRIAL

A cross country vehicle trial, or CCV trial for short, involves driving your 4×4 vehicle through a challenging offroad course. There are 2 sub-disciplines within this, depending on whether your vehicle is Road Taxed or not.  Similar to TYRO, The goal is to complete the course without stopping or hitting a marker. The driver with the lowest score wins. In some classes & competitions an approved roll cage may be required as the ground is significantly more demanding, and the competition sections are laid out to be much more technical and difficult than a TYRO.
