Larne Motor Club's newest event will return this year on Saturday 6th October. The event is a targa rally with special tests. The fun part of the the event will be the tests based on farm lanes.
Tests are run on private lanes or yards, with mixture of tarmac, concrete, gravel, mud and grass. Approximately 20 tests will be competed on during the day with cars starting at one minute intervals and must stop astride the finish line (same finish procedure as Autotests).
Bogey times are set at 30mph average, so there are some measures to try make sure they are not beaten, these include; chicanes, slaloms, and the occasional 360.
The test information will be given in the form of diagrams from aerial photos, tulips, enlarged diagrams, and other information. All pylons used in the tests will be identified and detailed in any diagrams. Basically, you will be given all the information needed to allow the crew to navigate their way through the test. The tests are planned to ensure a team effort is required, but are not designed to be confusing. The navigation will be simple and set to an easy schedule.
The event is designed to be challenging, yet competitor friendly and fun!
