Participants must at all times comply the Road Traffic Acts and within UK traffic and general laws. The route passes through many quiet villages during the early hours when residents are asleep and want quiet. Our cars can be quite noisy. Entrants should drive in a responsible and considerate manner at all times, minimising noise making and light usage when driving through rural communities. Failure to do so may result in exclusion from this and future events.
- Alston: Alston is highlighted as an area of particular concern for noise and lighting nuisance. Drive through Alston particularly quietly and use the minimum lighting to be safe. Do not exceed 20mph and use the highest gear possible for your car. Obey the Quiet board placed at the entrance to Alston.
