Not sure I'll make that. A) Little Horwood isn't much of a venue and B) I'm away the following weekend. It's a bloomin' long way from Wales.

I guess nowhere is perfect or will suit everyone Ian but what is the problem with LH? With regards, Matthew T.

I like Little Horwood, it's private, yet large enough, has decent driving roads nearby and isn't too near Milton Keynes...

Rallies are what you make them. What about a timed driving challenge to a location but without the aid of any GPS/Satnav and only a basic map, or timed to be the closest to a set duration, with checkpoints en-route where you get the next checkpoint information?

Generally, I think I'm just a bit fed up of 'cars line up in a field' type events. It may be pleasant enough, but it is still just a field. What do you do once you've looked at all of the cars? If you're travelling vast distances (as I would be) you want a bit more than that.

Careful about doing timed driving challenges on public roads, but this is EXACTLY the sort of thing that would get me more interested. Last CXM Rally I attended had a convoy to Bletchley Park, which was fascinating. Truly fascinating. But this is why I prefer events to move around a bit. What else could we go and visit around the UK? Or have a scenic drive out, but only give the location, then have an award to see who can get there covering least mileage (recovery trucks and sat navs are considered cheating!).

I take your point about 'cars in a field' not being everyone’s thing or necessarily enough of an attraction Ian, but LH is quite a nice field with camping, decent facilities and a pub etc. alongside. It is also worth mentioning that according to Phil Chidlow who is organizing the Chevrons Rally there will be various different activities arranged, which may well include a convoy and other nearby visits as you suggest. Another attraction of LH is the relatively central location and accessibility. With regards, Matthew T.
