Production Car Trials [PCT's] are held off-road, on maily grassy hillsides, driver and passenger skillfully persuade their production car to climb non-stop uphill in a series of tests - emerging from the top of the test being the objective. Successful crews will apply well honed techniques, to amaze the lay onlooker and all without the benifit or expense of a specialist car.

To add to the challenges, all cars have to use normal "summer type" tyres - winter, M&S or allweather tyres are not permitted. Many competiting cars in car trials are in day-to-day use, be it the family car or one used in other motor sport disciplines - or both!
