Saturday Evening Run & Drive-in Movie
The October drive day is a Saturday night ‘contest’ run starting with a BBQ dinner at Jells Park, Wheelers Hill and finishing with a movie at the Coburg Drive-in.
There will be two competitions / games on the drive, which will take 2 – 2-1/2 hours (1-3/4hr actual drive time).
One is a ‘regularity’ style timed driving between three check-points – contestants will score points according to how far from a target time (more or less) each contestant arrives at the check-point. Lowest final points wins. P-plate drivers get a discount of 1/3 off their time difference and Learner drivers get a discount of 1/2 off to level up the playing field. It takes about 35 – 40 mins between check-points.
Between consecutive check-points, there will be two marker points where contestants will be required to take a photo to show they passed through the point. Vehicles will depart at 1 min intervals. Drivers will have instructions with all the points given but the route between points will be of their choosing.
The second game is a card game with Renault models on cards instead of normal playing cards. At the start and each check-point players will get cards and may swap cards for different ones. Contestants covertly trading or selling cards among themselves is unlikely to be detected.
Obviously the driving contest is per vehicle, the card game is per person. Prizes will be awarded.
The BBQ will start at 4:30 and run for an hour. For catering purposes please advise your intention to attend by 19th October to
