A little about Origine RS this year at our new venue for 2017..!
For this years ORS Show, we’re trying something a little different.. We hope you’ll like it..!! Along with all the great selection of Alpine, Renaultsport and Classic cars on show with the Meguiars Show and Shine, for the first time, we shall be holding an Autotest! All of which will be held at the site of the historic Brooklands circuit and museum at Weybridge.
Gates open at 10:00am, and the event will close at 5.00pm
You’ll need to purchase a ticket through the Origine RS shop to be eligible for show parking and to take part in the Autotest. All other cars will have to park in the public car park.
“Whats an Autotest?”
An Autotest is an incredibly accessible introduction to motorsport. You will be timed over three short courses including the test hill and newly restored start finish straight at Brooklands. Penalties will be incurred for hitting cones and failing to stop in the required location. You will have up to three attempts at each course or “Test”.
NB These tests will be “All forward” with simple layouts. There will be no reversing and no requirement for handbrake turns.
You don’t need an MSA licence just a regular driving licence and membership of an affiliated club (which will be included as part of your entry fee if required).
There is no noise testing and because Autotests are lower-speed events you don’t need any special safety gear such as overalls and gloves, which makes this one of the most readily accessible motor sport disciplines. Even a helmet is not usually mandatory but if you have one we would always recommend that you wear it.
There will be some basic scrutineering of your car just to make sure it is safe to participate. For example checking that the battery is secure.
Trophies will be awarded for places in each class according to the number of entrants.
Whilst they may be lower speed, Autotests are still highly competitive and leave thousands of competitors all over the country smiling.
Test Hill Fun Runs
For those of you not brave enough to enter the Autotests (go on you know you want to!) there will be a limited number of fun runs up the hill in the afternoon. Places must be pre-booked and are subject to availability. Passengers are allowed on the test hill for these demonstration (fun) runs only. There will be no timing allowed on the fun runs.

Look forward to seeing you there..!
