19th February at Torphins Our second event of the year takes us to Torphins, a brand new site and hopefully a permanent one to add to our list!
We had a personal thank you from Nick & Rona Edgar - the owners of the site - for organizing such a fun day. They enjoyed spectating as much as we did driving!
26th February at Potarch Our first punch hunt of this season - this type of event is a favourite amongst our members.
Team up with others, and get going through the Potarch Forest to find various punches that have been hidden along the way. Punch cards are attached to your wing mirror or door, and you are given a map and a list of coordinates for all punches. The team that returns with the most punches win!
Entry on the day is £25 for the Motor and driver + £10 per passenger, passengers don't need to be club members but must be 14 or over.
Only rule - no more than 2 winches per team!
