A third national lockdown has triggered numerous requests from historic rally competitors and motor sport enthusiasts alike for another popular, yet challenging HERO-ERA Virtual Table Top Rally Championship. Instantly responding to the call, the winning and experienced team of Elise and Seren Whyte have put their creative minds together to produce yet another challenging three weeks of map plotting guaranteed to brighten a grim January.
As one champion driver said in his appeal; “Another lockdown!! We are sitting here trying to plan how we get through the next seven weeks, are you planning another Table Top Rally? I hope so, we need your help! Regards. Anxious of Wensleydale”
Help will also continue for the struggling hospitality industry who are now under even more pressure for survival. Due to the kindness of competitors and officials, HERO-ERA have just made a five thousand pound donation to charity partners Hospitality Action raised from previous VTTR’s, so any profit from this latest series will also go to the same worthy cause. So far through HERO2HELP, £25,100 has been raised for the NHS, StarterMotor and Hospitality Action.
Starting on Monday 11th January at 10.00 am, there will be three weeks of challenging plotting. Each week, Monday to Friday at 10.00 am, a new challenge will be released. Entrants can work out the answer for that week but must enter it online before the end of Sunday.
Winners will be picked out at random from all the correct entries with prizes for the overall HERO-ERA Virtual Table Top Rally Champion.
You will be provided with all you need to take part, a printer and pencil will be useful but they are not essential. As ever, the VTTRC can help keep navigational skills honed just as much as providing great entertainment during lockdown, but what it will also provide is good value. The entry fee is just £18 for three weeks, so competitors are advised to get their entries in fast!
The Whyte sisters who have also been successfully running their own regular forum based Navigational Webinars, promise they will keep you both drivers and navigators on their virtual toes;
Elise “ A new year brings a new kind of table top with a few different challenges, not seen before in 2020. Of course, still practicing those tricky plotting instructions but with an extra twist. Perfect to chase the January Lockdown Blues away!”
Seren; “We really enjoy the challenge of putting together these routes for you to explore the UK from the comfort of your own home, please help us to support the hospitality industry by taking part. We are on hand for help and advice throughout so give it a go!.”
