Remembering the correct route around the course and then getting round as quickly as possible is not as easy as it sounds, but when it all comes together it’s great. Love it! – James Thompson, Lamplugh
- Competitors only need a club membership card to enter and the entry fee tends to be £10.
- Young drivers can compete, again subject to certain conditions.
- Autotests take place on either grass or tarmac surfaces.
- Usually run on Sundays and Monday evenings at various West Cumbria locations.
Autotests are similar to autosolos. The object is that the organiser lays out a course of cones, and the competitors have to complete this course in the fastest time possible without incident. Penalties occur if you hit any of the cones setting out the course. Reverse gear is used on occasions.
