“The Vth HERO Throckmorton Challenge, based at former RAF Pershore, Throckmorton, Worcestershire.

Two great events in one day at one location for cars built before 1968.

The Throckmorton Challenge will be run under a dual National B and Clubmans Permit issued by the MSA

The Throckmorton Challenge has proved to be a very popular event in the classic car calendar with 2013 being oversubscribed and several reserve crews having to wait until close of signing-on before knowing if they would be competing. Designed to give competitors a challenging and enjoyable day, no two tests are identical and at least one regularity will be on private land.

Run according to HERO’s Standard Regulations the event is intended to give crews an enjoyable day competing on up to 15 tests on private ground at the QinetiQ site formally known as RAF Pershore in Worcestershire.

The day will include 3 or 4 Regularities. Scrutineering, Documentation, lunch, coffee and the evening buffet and awards presentation are all held on site.Throckmorton Challenege 2014

Trailer parking and overnight camping are also available on the QinetiQ site, allowing for a very compact format and giving excellent value for money. A full entry was received before the official close of entries in 2013 and expectations are that the 2014 event will be fully subscribed. The driving tests are similar to those used on Le Jog, HERO’s flagship event, and many crews use the Throckmorton Challenge as a way of honing their skills for longer and tougher events.

Run under a Dual Permit from the MSA, the club event is open to HERO members and requires no competition licence. The National B event is a round in the HRCR Clubman Rally Championship and an MSA competition licence is required. Navigation on the club event will be by Tulip roadbook and the regularities will be in the Jogularity style. Whilst there will be no navigational trickery, National B competitors can expect their roadbook to include non-tulip and no-Jogularity sections. The event is contained within a single OS map and no plotting is required.
