Event Description

Introductory difficulty

The September event will start from The Tally Ho Hotel, Bicester which will also be our rally HQ. The event will be made up of a mixture of regularities, link sections and more tests than HERO challenge one.

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 was 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 experienced 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.
