Car Club Midnight Rally

Car Club Midnight Rally

The Club's biggest event of the year, a 7 hour rally beginning at midnight, will be held on Saturday 7 August.

While the event has been designed with 2-man crews in mind, it will nevertheless put even a 4-man crew to the test. The emphasis has been shifted from timekeeping and this usually means the navigation becomes more complex; the "Midnight" is no exception to this rule. However, it will not be simply an intellectual exercise - far from it!

The first requirement is of the driver - the rally will be of average pace in some sections, quick in others, and flat out in the Special Stage. The Special Stage itself is optional and demands front seat crew to have seat belts.

Secondly the navigator - a variety of forms of running instructions will be used, and these will incorporate some completely new ideas. No instructions which are designed to confuse or deceive the competitors will be used.

Thirdly the timekeeper - if you are not already late, and you are on course, he will mean you lose even less points. However whether or not you win the event depends not so much on him as on the other two.

A meal break is provided (1 hour) during the night.

This should be the most interesting event the Club has yet seen. For all enquiries ring 783-910 evenings. See advertisements S.U.B. for further details.
