The CCRMIT Presidents Trial was held on 9 December.
The “Presidents Trial” was a commonly used name for trials – in 1978, there were three “Presidents Trials” on the rally calendar. The others were organised by SEAC on 10 June and WDCC on 11 November.
The CCRMIT Presidents Trial has a long history dating back to 1957. During the 1970s it developed into an open drivers event that was often the last event of the season.
