Hi all,
We're the "beginners" in the event!
I have some newby questions..
Where is the start point and when do we get the route map?
Cheers
Tim


Hi Tim,
Yes as Stuart says, the start location is in the regulations which you can download from this thread further up. As you don't have a map the map reference given is of no use so use the postcode given instead. If you need a specific location now, let me know and I'll email you a screenshot, as I'd rather not put the location here on a public forum.  A week before the event, I will send the Final  Instructions to all entrants by email. These include everything you need to know to compete in the event on the day. As beginners, you will be given a map at the start with the route already marked on it, and all you need to do is to follow the route on the road, writing down each code board you pass, which shows that you have driven the correct route. Novices and experts have it quite a bit harder than this as they have to work out the route themselves from navigation clues provided.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions once you have read the finals, then just let me know.

Rgds, Mike

Colin Wake/Michelle Wake - TR6 - Novice

The entry is now full, but still open for reserves. Experience of previous events shows that somebody will almost certainly drop out before the day, or break down getting there, so still send an entry if you would still like to enter.  If a place does not become available I would be very happy for you to use a marked map and run as a closing car, picking up the code boards on the way round for me. And you'd get your entry fee back. See?... there is such a thing as a free lunch.

Where does it say on the regs that I have to sit there and say nothing?

My work load has been hectic over the last few weeks, ive had the application filled out ready to send, i just havent had the chance, is it worth me sending it down to you for the reserve list?

If you could let me know and ill get into the post tomorrow morning along with a cheque.

Be gutted if we cant compete as it means we will loose points, my own fault though so no worries of not.

Cheers Nathan

I guess if I'm going to do this I need to finally sort that coolant leak on the Lemon. Can't quite work out where it's coming from either which is most annoying...

Hi Nathan - History of this event shows that nearly every time, somebody drops out with a few days to go or breaks down on the way there in the morning of the event. Or both. If you are 1st reserve, you stand a relatively good chance of getting in at the last minute, although nothing is certain of course.  Only you can make the decision whether it is worth the risk of travelling down and not getting a run.

Why not send an entry anyway, and I will keep you posted of the current position right up to the night before. If still no withdrawals, on the morning you can decide whether to travel to Essex or not. I can return your entry fee if you decide not to chance it.

Also, you could run as the closing car, going round the course behind the others picking up the code boards for me, using a marked map. You'd get your entry fee back and get marshalling points awarded.  Not everyone's cup of tea, I'll admit, but it might be okay for you if you are just looking for a run out and getting some points.

Hope this may help.

Cheers - Mike

PS - you could sneak into Jon's workshop on the 18th with some tools and "help" him find his leak?

Just don't go near the radiator when finding the leak - had enough headaches on RBRR with that sodding thing. Probably the most expensive single component on the whole car!
