For the first running of the event in 2008, it was organised jointly with Bristol Pegasus Motor Club.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e1¾ laps of the Castle Combe circuit equates to a competitive run of 3.3 miles; it was then, and probably still is, the longest sprint course in the country. It has been a qualifying round of the British Sprint Championship from the start, and thus attracts the biggest, fastest, most spectacular sprinters in the UK!\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIts March date means that for many it is the first sprint of the season, and reliability issues have occasionally led to some running delays, which haven’t been helped by the unpredictable nature of the weather.

What is “classic” about classic trials is the format, which has its roots back in the 1930s. To put it simply, in a trial you have to drive your car up a number of narrow, steep, muddy slopes and try to avoid getting stuck. There are penalties if you fail, and the winner is the competitor with the lowest score at the end of the day. There is a route of 70-100 miles on the public highway to get from one slope, or ‘section’, to the next, and any timing is used to keep the whole event on some sort of schedule rather than as a way of penalising competitors. Many of the observed sections, on which one’s performance is determined, are the same ones that were used 80-odd years ago, and they are still as challenging as they were then.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eYou’ll find much more about Classic Trials on the informative Association of Classic Trials Clubs website, including how to get started in the sport.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFirst run in its current form in 1946, The Allen continues to attract a full entry for the 75-mile drive around the Mendip countryside every November, taking in such classic sections as Big Uplands, John Walker, Toghill, Travers and Burledge. It takes its place alongside other established Classic Reliability Trials in the annual calendar, and has twice won the national Trial of the Year award.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIt is a tour de force for the organising team who each year give weeks of their time planning the route, preparing the sections, conducting an enormous PR exercise, and recruiting and delivering equipment to the 100-plus marshals, without whom the event simply would not happen.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThese days the Allen starts and finishes at The Bull at Hinton, roughly 5-minutes south of the M4 junction-18, between Bristol and Bath. \u003ca href=\"http://youtu.be/NkwXPaOPRZ8?list=UUilvxmZMacIjhLtuR7-9JYQ\" rel=\"nofollow\"\u003eHere’s a video record of the first-time experience of two club members in 2013.\u003c/a\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eApart from the eponymous trophy for the winner, the Best Performance by a Bristol MC member is rewarded by the Gilbert Best Memorial Trophy, named in honour of a staunch club member and successful triallist in the 1940s and 50s.\u003c/p\u003e","VenueName":null,"VenueMapLocation":"The Bull,
