HERO Challenge Two – September 2020



A One Day Event

5th September 2020

The second of three HERO Challenges of 2020 will be based in the Preston 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 some simple plotting required on the Regularity sections.  This should be a fun and competitive day out exploring north Lancashire and some of its hidden roads, made famous from a bygone era of rallying. The Tests on the event will be split between two venues each with their own demanding characteristics.

Entries for the Master Class will only become available from 1st July 2020 and will be subject to how many entries remain

  • The cars will be split into classes based on age and CC
  • The scoring on the test sections is class-based so you will be scoring against other similar aged vehicles
