Hero Challenge Three 2020 will be based in the Taunton area and will be predominantly aimed at novice and intermediate crews, although there will be a master’s class for the more experienced competitors.
The event will be made up of a mixture of Tests and Regularities designed to be enjoyable for all levels of experience, with navigation kept simple. Crews will be supplied with an easy to read Routebook with no plotting required. This should be a fun, competitive day out, traversing the quieter roads of the beautiful Somerset & Devon countryside. We will also be visiting some interesting & enjoyable Test venues.

*Itinerary Subject to Change
A master will be defined by both crew members in the seat they have entered the event who have finished first overall on a HERO green or blue standard event or any ERA event, in the top three of a red or black event (including Rally of the Tests in the overall positions including non-eligible cars), received the Gold medal on Le Jog or in the top three of a HRCR National B Road Rally in the last 3 years.
