AUTOTESTS & AUTOSOLOS
SE Centre Autotest
Challenge, for the Magic Midge Trophy, is awarded for the best
performance over the Centre's annual events.
Inter-Centre California Cup Autotests are run at Silverstone
during the M.G.C.C. International Weekend. As well as individual
awards, there are team prizes for the best Register performance
as well as the major prize of the California Cup itself.
Weald Motor Club run a series of summer
autotests on grass to which we are usually invited.
A new variation of Autotesting is the
event - a bit faster than our usual events, and no reversing. We usually
receive invitations to
Farnborough District MC's
spring, summer and autumn events which appear on our
users! Jeremy Bayne-Powell has produced an amusing video
guide to Autotesting, based on our NESCOT event.

Centres also run Autotests at which you will be very welcome.

Works and South
RALLIES AND TREASURE HUNTS
are invited to a number of rallies each year. The very popular Regis Rally,
run by Bognor Regis MC, is one in which M.G.s usually
do very well. It is primarily a navigational road rally for
historic cars but includes a few special autotest-like stages on the
way. A bit more serious than our scatter rallies, but just as much fun.
Blackpalfrey Motor Club run a series of '12 car' regularity runs
throughout the year to which MGCC members are invited. These provide a
good introduction to navigational rallying.
SE Centre Valentines Treasure Hunt and Spring Naviscat (scatter
rally) are held
in February and March respectively. Always well supported, these
light-hearted events are very popular with members. Essentially a tour
round the countryside seeking out clues to solve before meeting up for a
friendly lunch in a local hostelry. Another Naviscat is in
October, while the Gribble Natter organise a popular Treasure Hunt in
December each year.

If you enjoy Naviscats, don't forget
that other centres organise them too. Check the web sites, such as the
PRODUCTION CAR TRIALS
Always popular, these events
have historically provided the chance
to be competitive in a standard road car on non-damaging grassland.
SE Centre has recently been unable to find a venue for our events. We
receive invitations to several other clubs' trials each season, in particular those
organised by the
Maidstone & Mid Kent Motor Club and
District MC, although the terrain for these is often a bit rougher
than our preferred grassland. Contact
Reynolds for details.
Centres, such as the Midlands
West, offer a series of
events for those who like this sort of challenge.
SE Centre no longer runs any sprint or hillclimb events
itself, but several of our members compete in the
Speed Championship each year, usually bringing home a few class awards
- 2012 saw Marc Hanson (MGF) and Howard Harman (P-type) succeeding.

And remember that MGCC
membership allows you to enter many speed events without necessarily contending
for a championship. Contact our Competitions
Secretary for details of these invitations.
The Club is extremely active in this
aspect of the sport, and many South East Centre members participate at
circuits all over the country in several keenly contested championships.
