Drive For Life

Part of the HRA Touring Championship the Drive for Life has become a stalwart of the HRA Calendar.

Whether you are an experienced driver/navigator crew or a family wanting a fun day out, Drive for Life offers a day of scenic touring, challenge solving and comraderie. We start at the meeting/start location 8am and conclude at our final destination for a BBQ lunch.

Division 1 - Social Drive: No prior experience required! this is one for the whole family. An easy to follow set of instructions with some clues to find and solve will get you the final destination. Family car, sense of fun and current drivers licence is all that is required.

Division 2 - Championship course: This division requires a minimum crew of 2 - a driver and navigator. A tulip route course instruction needs to be followed with accuracy to succeed in this one. You will also arrive at the final destination but not on the same route as the social drive. If you are playing for Club championship points, this section is a CAMS sanctioned touring assembly. Club membership and CAMS 2NS licence are requiremements for points allocation. You can of course still bring the whole family as this is not a speed event.

All funds raised beyond event costs go directly to funding suicide prevention education with a focus
