A warm welcome back to our off-roading season, which many of you have been eagerly looking forward to.
We kick off with the 1st Punch Hunt in the 2017 Championship.
Lamancha is a medium to large site and is suitable for all types of 4×4 whether showroom or prep’d, with plenty of interesting features and different terrain.
On the day, there will be punches (see picture below) set out around the site. You will be given a laminated card attached to your wing mirror (you can choose which). Upon finding a punch, you simply get your wing mirror close enough to punch the corresponding box on the card. You will also be given a handheld card to be kept in the vehicle for you to use if you find a certain punch too difficult. Sound easy?
There are two types of punch – GREEN, suitable for all vehicles and RED which is slightly more difficult and may require some thinking – which is where the handheld card may come in useful.
Scoring is 2 points for every correct RED and 1 point for every GREEN.
This event is open to all types of 4×4, however a full driving licence must be held by the driver.
Punch Hunts are a great day out for all the family, keeping everyone occupied looking for the punches – it always helps to have a passenger if you need to send them through some mud to get the RED punches!
