It will basically be a relaxed and fun day’s trialing in some of the areas of Potarch that we normally drive around because its just madness to go through / up them etc whilst trying to collect punches.

The way I see this event running is the event will be split into two or more groups, depending on how many turn up. You will stay in the groups throughout the day, and move round through the courses as a group.

It will be like a normal RTV trial, however some courses will be marked 7,6,5,4,3,2,1, and a clear and depending on how far you get through the course on one run, this idea will be mainly for the bogs etc, other courses will be run on normal RTV rules (ie 3 attempts)

We will need people there with winches and willing to use them to recover other people out of courses Laughing

We decided to come up with idea rather than just running constant Punch Events (although these are still very popular)

See you there

Phil

Phil,

Potarch events usually do not allow spectators due to the fact that vehicles are roaming the whole site on a point to point event, with no focal location. As this week's event is being run more on the lines of an RTV trial, will it be suitable for spectators?

Cheers

Mike

Mike,

We also have to pay for each vehicle using the site, that's another reason why spectators are not normally allowed.

If you are a Club Member then you can sign on as a Marshal and help run things - no uniform but you do get a little power!

Let Phil know if you are willing to Marshal on Sunday.

Stew,
