The event will comprise orienteering to find punches set out around the site (punch card attached to vehicle) with winch self recovery as required and two compulsory untimed special sections to make the event more interesting should the land not lend itself to the required difficulty.

Start positions will be allocated by the Clerk of the Course on the day.  There are no requirements for practice but the entrant should make the Clerk of the Course aware if they consider themselves to be novice drivers.

The minimum number of competitors is five and the maximum is twenty five.  Entries will be opened on publication of these regulations and closed on the day of the event.  If insufficient entries have been received by the close of pre-entry the organisers reserve the right to cancel or postpone the event.

The entry fee will be 80 per vehicle and a competition licence (IOPD or MSA) will be required for both Driver and Crew.  Day Membership for drivers and crew will be available for a fee of 10 per person. Any entries may be refused at the absolute discretion of the Clerk of the Course. IOPD completion licences may be purchased on line or on the day (15/year or 5/event) and will be issued on the day of the event.

Competitors may pre-enter the event or pay on the day but must fill in an entry form.  Whether you pre-enter or not, we ask that all competitors download and print their paper entry forms prior to the event – this will save time filling them out on the day.
