Quoted from RobPearce


Co-driver stops because he's too tired, wakes you up, but doesn't inform you that there's a control approaching. SatNav doesn't either, and co-driver is fast asleep as you drive straight past and most of the way to the next one. No, we didn't turn round, we just explained to the marshals at Land's End that we were still in the run, we'd just had a communication problem about the extra stop that wasn't there the previous time I'd done the run.


That gives me an idea for a penalty - return to the previous control because you did not sign in .......... ouch!

Must think of some nice ones!

Quoted from Jonny-Jimbo
Although, that was in the early 90's when I was about 6 or 7....


I feel old now you young man!  

I like the idea of photos, another thought, if you approach photographic schools. The students are more than willing to help, it's good for their portfolio especially as it's for charity, and they do a great job, and probably would only ask for food and drinks to keep them going.
Perhaps it may mean that they would need ferrying to certain points.


Cheers

Without knowing the route yet they could just go to the Start at the Plough, then one of the Stops in Oxfordshire and then at the Finish too, where they could sell the photos?

I'm can't see why action shots on some of the B roads can't be put on a website as a specimen then we can order the high resolution download. Could make a few bob for both photographer and club.

I was just thinking that getting a photographer out into the sticks could be difficult, and getting all the cars as they come through, plus teams would then have to pay for postage on them - not a deal breaker, but I guess some people may think twice about it in that scenario.

It'd be good to have photos as people go through the B-Roads though.

Yeah, but then you wouldn't have it nicely printed in an embossed frame etc, which was part of the original idea... I don't really want to pay for a download...
