To the outside world, Cross Country motor sports is just another branch of mucking about with cars … perhaps grubbier and madder than most, but a singular branch non-the-less.
In fact, Cross Country motor sports is a wide and vibrant sub-culture, that reflects many of the “normal” branches of motorsport…. but with a twist, reflecting the nature of our environment.
- Cross Country does Rallying… Multi-Venue rallies are called Hill Rallies and single-venue rallies are called Competitive Safaris.
- Cross Country does Trials… we even call them Trials.
- Cross Country does Orienteering or Navigation events… they can be simple orienteering events, Treasure hunts, Point-to-Point events, or Winch Challenge events.
- Cross Country also provides other, non-competitive, events for the discerning enthusiast:
- Green Road Runs are a bit like a Sunday Drive, but without the tarmac, and with friends.
- Driving Days are organised drives across country.
Cross Country takes place on off-road courses of up to 10 miles in length. Each competitor completes the course several times and is given penalties for exceeding the bogey. As with rallying, the winner is the competitor with the smallest aggregate time penalty. Trials feature courses, called sections, marked out by a series of gates. The further you get through each section without stopping or hitting the gate, the lower the penalty.
