*** Please note the change of venue, which is now LAW ***
Some of you may already have started your off-roading season with us at the Gala Trials held last month, for the rest of you, this might be what you’re waiting for!
Law is an interesting site, with lots of different nooks and crannies to hide the punches in. The site is suitable for all types of 4×4, however it does favour something with at least AT tyres on, as the ground can be soft in places, especially as the cattle have only recently been evicted.
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!
