Will we receive backup and support on the route?

 

You need to remember; this is a challenge
event with NO technical support teams in massive
transporters to help you along. This is NOT Formula 1!!!

You are on your own, but due to the nature of the event, you
will never be left behind……….. (We Hope)

 

 

Where do we stand legally?

 

There are obviously rules to abide by and you must always
carry certain documentation with you such as a valid driving license.

 

Registration for the event, every team member will sign an
agreement to accept the rules and regulations set down by the organisers and a
disclaimer which will indemnify the organisers of any legal recourse.

As with many motoring events, this is standard procedure.

 

Please be aware of the rules of the road in each of the
counties that we visit.

Other costs to factor into the rally.

 

·      Cost of your chosen vehicle (if not
already owned)

·      Vehicle Insurance

·      Optional Breakdown Cover

·      Fuel

·      Food and Drink

·      MOST IMPORTANTLY – DRINK TOKENS

 

Prizes at the end of the rally

 

There will be a prize pot of money set aside (amount TBC) and
will be split between the following,

 

·      Best decorated vehicle (1st,
2nd & 3rd)

·      Spirit of the event award (One only)

 

We actively encourage EVERYONE taking part to decorate
their vehicle as this is huge part of the event, some people may go a bit
overboard and some may just put a few stickers or flags on the car……. Both ends
of the scale are ok with us.

 

Fancy Dress is always fun and encouraged, the Wackier the
better. (not mandatory).
