December 2020 autotest cancelled

From Robert Newlove:

With there being no let up in the corona situation, and the likely hood of our area being in Tier3 after the lockdown, I have decided not to run the December Autotest. The next date scheduled is the New Year Autotest on the 3rd of January. I shall look at this a bit nearer the date.

NHMC Club Autotests

From Robert Newlove:

I have been looking into starting the club Autotests again, under the new Covid Regulations.

I was hoping to run an event in October or November, but after looking at the various events that are planned, I am going to try our next scheduled date of 6th December.

Hopefully at Reader’s Yard (although the venue is currently for sale!)

There will be no physical paperwork, hopefully everything will be done electronically, also NO SPECTATORS

I need to know how many entries I can expect, as there is quite a lot involved in running an event, I need to know if it is to be worthwhile.

Also, looking to the future we are going to need to find some new venues.

Please let me know if you are going to be entering.

Maple Garage Autotest (22 March 2020) postponed

From Robert Newlove:

In accordance with instructions from Boris, I have decided to postpone the Maple Garage Autotest until the crisis is over. We may have it in the sun!.

Most of our marshals ( and some of our competitors)  are getting on a bit, so I think it is best to err on the side of caution.

February Autotest -16 Feb 2020 – CANCELLED

From Robert Newlove:

Seeing as the weather forecast has not improved and 50 mph winds and rain  forecast, I have decided to postpone the Autotest planned for Sunday .

I will try and arrange another date.

New Year Autotest – 5 January 2020

From Robert Newlove:

Regulations  for the it@Spectrum New Year Autotest are available. Thanks to Ken for sponsoring the event.

Two Things to Note

Motorsport UK have put an additional £5.0 onto the per capita fee, so now we pay £11.50 to the Motorsport UK for each entry. As a result we have increased the entry fee to £15 from £12, the club will subsidise the rest.


Anyone entering an Autotest will need a competition Licence, the minimum is the Clubman RS licence which is free. You can apply on line for this, or by post, I will have some forms available on the day. If you hold another licence already such as a rally Licence, you will have to renew it before the 5th January.

I will also need some marshals, so let me know if you can help.
