Never done one of our events and are not sure what to expect?

 First of all, bring your sense of humor our group is here for a good time and a lot of laughs will be had over the weekend. The cars, it really doesn’t matter what you bring. We have had Ladas, Falcons, Chev trucks, Dodge Vipers, Escorts, Evo, Wrx, and an assortment of BMW people who have even brought Utes when their main car didn’t make the start.

No matter what you’re in you have fun the weekend is about points, not speed.   You get points by following the crazy and sometimes light-detailed instructions that will guide you through the weekend. Take a funny photo work out the sequence of the green letterboxes or find the hidden photos we have taken earlier. All in the name of fun

Saturday evening we have a group dinner, where we hand out some prizes and have a good catch-up.

Sunday evening we have the final prize giving and send you off into the world.
