Event Description

The March event returns to the Vale Golf Club, Pershore as rally HQ. The first HERO challenge of 2019 will be mainly Regularity based with only a couple of Tests.

The green (Introductory) Events are designed to be enjoyable and fun, a good day out. They have a competitive element but the navigation should not be taxing, although, at times, may be challenging.

The HERO Challenge One – March will be the first HERO event in 2019 to run a Masters Class, which will also be introduced on other Green Events where the difficulty of the navigation is not designed for the expert or experienced crews

The Class has been created for novice and beginner events to allow these crews to be in a position to challenge for overall and Class honors whilst at the same time not preventing the more experience crews, who wish to shake down their cars or just come along and enjoy the social side of the event, to still compete for the honor of being the best overall Master.
