Testing trail Passenger age?
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:13:49 pm »
Is there a minimum age for the passenger on the testing trial, my daughter is off on a scout camp so I thought it would be a great chance to do some father son motor sport!

Heís 6 so will be in a proper seat belted in etc.

Minimum age for passengers is 14 in an open car, and 12 in a saloon.
You can bring your son in the back of the car as an additional passenger:-
T4.1.6 ......any child under 12 years of age or 135cm in height must be seated using an approved 'child restraint'.

Is that open car rule applicable to Trials sidecars?

Nope, that is the MSA rule for Cars.
ACU rules apply for Sidecars.   This means that sidecar passengers have to be 16.
However, the organisers can apply to the ACU to allow a passenger of 14 to run.
So if you are planning to ride with a 14 year old, enter, then let the organisers know so that application can be made.
