The “Tour de Fleurieu”, taking place over the weekend of 1st and 2nd September 2018 will be an old-fashioned Road Rally, some might even use the word trial, with a chance for the Drivers to have a go and Navigators to prove their worth.
The Driving Tests will take place on Private Property. The Touring sections have been surveyed in a normal car so we expect that those interested will be able to join in the Event in road cars. Driving Tests will require helmets for Driver / Navigators. Other than that, car preparation and equipment required is minimal.
Saturday night will feature a chance to socialise over a meal (included in entry fee) at the Wirrina Woolshed before restarting the Event on Sunday (breakfast available at Wirrina café) with some more touring and a final driving test before finishing back at Wirrina.
The idea for this Event, and possibly Events in the future, will work if competing Crews stick to touring speeds while obeying traffic regulations and do not treat the traversing of the roads as the usual race against the clock. The experienced Navigators will tell you that if you go too quickly you will miss many turns and information. Times for the overall touring sections will be generous and will only be provided to ensure the officials don’t have to stay out until the next week. Road conditions are challenging and fun with the majority well-formed gravel surfaces.
We look forward to receiving your entry no matter which club you are a member of or what sort of car you drive!
