Sporting Trials, also known as mud plugging, are a development of Production Car Trials (PCT's), and differ by virtue of both terrain used and the highly specialised nature of the cars. The vehicles are purpose-made two-seaters with rear-wheel drive and use standard road tyres. The venues used offer a more arduous terrain than those used by PCTs, the sections climbed by Sporting Trials cars are often too steep or slippy even to walk up. The object in Sporting Trials is to drive the car through a section marked by a series of 13 gates, without either touching the posts or stopping forward motion. The difficulty appears when you consider that these sections are laid out over some very difficult and hilly terrain..........
