Any further Supplementary Instructions will be issued if necessary. Crews arriving after this time may be refused entry into the event.

    An MsUK Declaration and Indemnity shall be signed stating that all drivers hold a valid driving licence for the car that has been entered and are fit to drive, that the car and crew are insured for road use, and that the car is taxed as required, with a valid MoT certificate, or if MoT exempt is fully fit for use and roadworthy, as required by the Road Traffic Act.

    • Please note that any car arriving at the start with racing numbers attached will be asked to remove them. Official Scrutineering will not take place.

    Objective: The objective is to drive from Parracombe to Flamborough Head via the mandatory halfway halt by means of a suggested (although not mandatory) route. Do remember that the event is not a race, it is not timed and has no competitive aspect. No prizes will be awarded other than event souvenirs to those crews who successfully complete the run. Do not drive if tired, all crew members may drive the car, if legally entitled to do so.

    Costs: All expenses such as car preparation, repair, recovery, fuel, road tolls, and personal food and drink not covered by the entry fees, shall be met by the crews.

    Route, Navigation and Driving Behaviour: The suggested route will be about 470 miles on public roads. It will be on sealed surfaces. The routes provided are suggested only and are not mandatory. Participants must at all times comply with the Road Traffic Act and with UK traffic and general laws. Routes may pass through towns and villages during the early hours when residents are asleep and want quiet. Our cars can be quite noisy so should be driven in a responsible and considerate manner at all times, minimising noise and light usage, especially when driving through residential areas. Failure to do so may result in exclusion from this and future events. Driving Standards may be observed by Club and/or MsUK officials at any point of the route. Any specific requirements such as mandatory ‘Quiet Zones’ will be notified in the Final Instructions.

    Start: The cars will leave the start as and when instructed to do so by the organisers.

    Controls: A midway stop is arranged for all crews to sign in at the control and to take a mandatory rest at Welcome Break Southbound, M40 Motorway, Jct 12/13 &14/12, Banbury Road, Warwick CV35 0AA.

    Finish: All crew members must sign in at the finish. Should you have to withdraw during the event please contact the organisers using the details supplied previously or in the Final Instructions.

    Navigational Equipment: In addition to the recommended safety equipment listed previously the following equipment will be necessary for navigation:

    • An updated Sat Nav system (Garmin or TomTom) or a mobile phone with the TomTom Go app installed.
    • The Suggested Route files, which will be issued by the Organisers, in the form of .gpx files for loading onto your navigation system. (It is possible to view the .gpx files on a computer and transfer them to a map book if required – further details available on request)
    • Paper maps (spiral bound are easiest to use), map light/magnifier or ‘Potti’, soft clipboard, paper, pencils and eraser.

    It is advised to have both electronic and paper maps available within the vehicle.

    Please note that in the interests of safety and compliance with the law, electronic navigation devices shall not be driver operated unless the vehicle is stationary with the engine switched off. Such devices should be safely and securely mounted in a position not obscuring the driver’s vision.

    Communications: In addition to the recommended navigational equipment listed previously the following equipment will be necessary for communication:

    • A Smartphone with WhatsApp installed and operating will be necessary for communication during the event. At least one member of the crew needs to know how to communicate using WhatsApp.

    Prior to the event the organisers will communicate with the entrant by email and generally through the Club Triumph Forum. The organisers will establish WhatsApp groups for all entrants / crews to communicate with the organisers and all teams before, during and after the event. When providing entrant’s and crew’s phone numbers please ensure that you give the number that you have registered for WhatsApp.

    Please note that in the interests of safety and compliance with the law, mobile phones shall not be driver operated unless the vehicle is stationary with the engine switched off.

    Meals: An evening meal can be purchased by entrants at The Old Station Inn, Blackmoor Gate, Kentisbury, Devon, EX31 4NW before signing on. Breakfast can also be purchased at The Headlands Restaurant, Lighthouse Road, Flamborough Head, Nr Bridlington YO15 1AR. Neither meal is included in the entry and is to be paid directly to the restaurants by the entrants. Please indicate any special dietary requirements to the restaurant when ordering your meals.

    The entrants must provide any other food and drink consumed before, during and after the event themselves.

    Entry: Entry and management of entry will be entirely through Club Triumph’s website. It is a requirement that entrants keep their respective personal, contact, crew and car information up to date. Failure to do so may result in an entrant missing late changes to the event due to the organisers not being able to communicate with them.

    Data Protection: Entrants are advised that information supplied on the entry form will be held on computer and will only be used for administration of the event. Entrants’ and crews’ names and car details only will be posted on Club Triumph's website.

    Entrant and crew mobile phone numbers will be used for the WhatsApp group (unless specifically requested otherwise) for organisers and entrants use whilst on the event only.

    COVID-19: The event will follow the latest UK Government and MsUK COVID-19 guidance.
