Now re-named as the HERO Challenge, the 2017 event will be based around the famous airfield near Bicester, Oxfordshire - but may include new and exciting venues building on the feedback received after last year's event.
The Clubman category is ideal for those looking to step up from touring type events, newcomers to the sport or simply those who prefer tulip style navigation. The National B section is aimed at the more seasoned competitor or those who prefer traditional navigation methods.
The HERO Challenge is totally different to many other traditional historic regularity rallies as it runs as a dual-permit event that allows two events to follow a very similar route – yet allows an approach that gives two very different styles of navigation and approach to be used.
The HERO Challenge has formed a part of the HRCR Clubmans Championship throughout most of its existence, the formula of a series of centrally located driving tests interspersed with regularity sections has been appealing since its inception. The National B Section is aimed at crews with more experience or those who relish the challenge of traditional navigation skills and techniques.
For those who have limited time available or prefer an event where straight forward navigation is used the HERO Challenge is an ideal way to begin your adventure into historic regularity rallying. The HERO Challenge Clubman Section has been a firm favourite on the calendar since its inception in 2010 due to the straight – forward navigation and flowing driving tests, it is perfect for those who prefer tulip road book style navigation or who are newcomers / novices to historic regularity rallying.
