An amalgam of tests, regularities and resplendent views are all part of HERO’s Challenge Three event, set-up to allow drivers and crews of any skill level to enjoy around 150 miles of British countryside.
As opposed to HERO’s usual offerings of both domestic and trans-European marathons, the gentler challenge events have been designed to give amateur and novice crews a taste of the action on the national stage, whilst also offering more advanced tests for the more experienced. Fully adapted to meet COVID-19 restrictions, this one-day event celebrates pre-1986 machinery of all shapes and sizes, with the likes of 1925 Bentley Supersports, Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprints and ’67 Ford Mustangs all ready to set off from the event’s base in Taunton, Somerset.
A simplified routebook takes away the usual complications of plotting, allowing competitors the freedom to enjoy every aspect of the predetermined scenic route, as well as a selection of competitive tests and regularity challenges along the way. There are also masters categories available for the more experienced competitor.
Each category will be separated by vehicle age and engine capacity, and will be scored against one another accordingly, with a host of awards to be won.
