Description
Enjoyed our inaugural PH Sporting Tour last year? In 2019 we've three more! Last year, we launched our very first PistonHeads Sporting Tour, taking more than 100 cars around the Suffolk countryside with two timed tests at a private venue. The Motorsport UK-approved event was a hit and we were overwhelmed with your response and feedback, so we're back for more action. 2019 will see three Sporting Tours taking place up and down the country with the timed tests at MSV circuits. Your feedback from last year has honed the format and we're excited to announce our provisional calendar for this year: Sporting Tour South (Kent), tests at Brands Hatch, 13th April Sporting Tour North (Derbyshire), tests at Oulton Park, 6th July Sporting Tour Midlands (Warwickshire), tests at Donington Park, 28th September For anyone that missed it last year, just what is a Sporting Tour? Brought together with GT Motorsports Club, the rally experts behind the Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton, our tour is a type of rally commonly referred to as a 'touring assembly'. Our events are authorised and permitted by Motorsport UK. The one-day events will tour beautiful country roads, with lunch and timed tests based at the MSV circuits highlighted above. Each competitor will have a start time, but as most of the driving takes place on public roads, there will be no other timing involved other than the tests. You'll make your way to check points, where marshals will stamp your route book before setting off on the next stage of the rally. Your co-driver will need to brush up on their map reading skills, as you'll navigate the route with a Tulip Road Book with no satnav in sight. The book plots out the distances, directions and junctions you need to navigate throughout the route, making for a refreshing change from the need for technology. Seasoned motorsport competitors are welcome but this event is perfect for novices who want to take their first step onto the ladder. For those of you who joined us in October, we've listened to your requests; the road sections are longer with less smaller roads, and excitingly we're laying on some bigger auto tests at MSV circuits. This has resulted in a slightly higher entry cost of £180 per car, but we're confident it'll be worth it. Register your interest here with GT Motorsports Club to get exclusive pre-sale access to book ahead of general sale. Entries for the PistonHeads Sporting Tour South will open in early February and will be available on a first come, first served basis. We look forward to seeing you there!

Insurance ​ You will need to check your policy to see what level of cover your insurer provides. The road driving element is a non-timed and non-competitive format and is officially classed as a 'touring assembly'. You're essentially following a route at your own pace and not competing with anyone. ​ The timed tests on the private venue are very unlikely to be covered by your standard road insurance as these are on private land and would be deemed competitive. We are able to offer third party cover for road use through a specialist insurer, JELF, which you can opt for on the entry form. Please note this does not cover private land usage for the auto tests.
