So whats it all about?
Just like competitive rallies all over the world, ours consists of several stages - each stage has a checkpoint, which your car must complete to qualify for the prizes...
However, ours is unlike anything you've ever experienced before!
The route is pre-planned to wind through and around the Somerset, Glostershire and Wiltshire counties that is the South West, passing by famous landmarks whereby the checkpoints come in. You must photograph your vehicle by or in these checkpoints to gain points.
There is also a scavenger hunt for the opportunity to win extra points to help you win the top prizes!
There is also the 'Joker Photo' - which is another opportunity to clench some more bonus points!
At the finishing point the BWS team will total up each vehicles points from each checkpoint and our five guest judges will score the bonus 'Joker Photos' and you will have a chance to present your found scavenger items! We will then hold the prize ceremony and there will be an opportunity to get food/drink at the finishing point, time to socialise before and after the event, with a little hoon after almost guaranteed.
This Rally is NOT a race, you could turn up at the finish point last and still win First place on points. Everyone is reminded to drive 'sensibly' during the rally as there is a strong Police and VOSA presence in and around London.
Starting point is Cheddar Gorge (BS27 3QF) and the finish point for obvious reasons is disclosed until the night (but it will be central Wiltshire somewhere).
The rally will start at 1800h (6pm), but make sure you arrive in time to get the cheat sheet and grab any food and drink from the Diner before we all start off.
The cut off point for finishing at our secret finish location will be 2300h (11pm)! And then the award ceremony at 2400h (12pm)!
Early Bird tickets are just £20 per car when booked online - as this is a fun rally you may bring as many passengers as your car can safely and legally seat.
Regular tickets are £25 per car from the 17th May.
You will receive a score card and hints how to win the most points on the night, the basics are all here though;
To complete a stage you must take a stationary (please no mobile selfies whilst driving) picture of your car at/on/in the given checkpoint.
Each successfully completed stage will award your car 12 points!
Each scavenger hunt item that is present at the final checkpoint will award your team with an additional 1-to-10 points. The list of scavenger hunt items will be released on the night to prevent any 'cheating' - (the scavenger items will be something random like - a pink sock, a hair brush for EXAMPLE).
The 'Joker Photo' will award your team with a potential 10 points! We're looking for the most creative photo taken of your car with your team, think weird, think wonderful, or... don't think at all!
Spot the BWS STIG, that's right, at one random checkpoint, within view somewhere, one of our marshals will be dressed as the STIG - every team to snap a selfie with the STIG will be awarded with a bonus of 15 points!
Each car must finish at the final checkpoint and submit their 'points' evidence to a BWS marshal to be totaled up ready for the prize giving!
Strangely... Speed isn't everything, you could get to the final checkpoint last but still win on points!
You must hold a valid UK drivers licence.
You must be driving your own vehicle, with a valid UK MOT, Road Tax and Insurance.
You must not drive in a dangerous or anti-social manner.
We do NOT encourage speeding or racing, this is meant to be a fun, fundraising event (there are lots of cameras around London and traffic police, please don't get yourselves in trouble).
We recommend that you have at least one other person in your car with you as a co-driver (for several obvious reasons), as well as simply being helpful for taking pictures and as a second pair of eyes searching for those bonus items!
Bring some small change, you never know what tolls might crop up on your travels.
Bring a smart phone, excellent for taking quick pictures on and also great as a sat-nav for directions!
How to enter
Purchase your entry fee by adding this £25 ticket to your basket and checking out online.
We will send you a physical ticket via post approximately one week before the event start date. Please bring this with you to the event starting point.
And finally we will assign a number to your car and provide you with a decal of it on the night!
See you all there!
