Rating:***
Details:A little bit on road, a little bit off road and some somewhere in between ... That's if you stick to the intended course. There will be short cuts which will lose you points (but get you to the beer quicker). The fastest most likely won’t be the winner and all road rules and speed limits must be observed. Any one violating the aforementioned rules will be fined by the constabulary and awarded the 'STIG'. Participants wearing silly hats or odd socks will be awarded bonus points. Some of the directions and questions could be a little out there, so beware the double-entendre you have been warned. Most of all enjoy yourselves and make a day of it and bring the entire family or if yours doesn’t like you, bring someone else’s.
