Quoted from yorkshire_spam
I think it's a bit of a shame that the list of checkpoints has been given without location information, so all the experienced teams now know where they are going, but us first timers won't be able to start looking at the route properly until after the drivers meeting.

As a first timer I'd have liked as long as possible to prepare in advance.


You're not missing a great deal and I think Tim has always worried about non-registered cars taking part if too much is made available to the mass public. You'll already have an idea of where you're going even if you're new and that's a huge advantage. The only extra info you'll find out from the road book is its near enough exact location (some require spotting a CT banner for the correct car park - Sugarloaf) and the times you'll be getting there if everything is going well. One thing I absolutely hate about the 10CR is not knowing anything until the exact last minute, the RBRR really has the edge on it there.


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

Ferny - for me a great thing about the 10CR is not knowing the route in any detail beforehand.

I would prefer "this is the start, these are the overnights and this is the finish". Maybe even no route just guidance to some great roads to be found in the countries you may visit.

But then I am probably in a minority

I'm with you Martin, the start the finish and a rough idea of the countries would do me. I remain amazed at all the fuss and bad feeling floating about at the onset of the previous

That is no good for the people who have warrents out for their arrest from previous 10CR's.
