"The Pete Singfield 12 Car Navigational Series"

Aimed at beginners and novices an ideal introduction to the sport, normally on the third Friday of the month October, November, January, February and March. The Pete Singfield Cup is presented to the best Novice Driver and Navigator of the series. We also have awards for Beginners and Experts.

There are two main types of event which constitute the series, the 12-Car and the Navigational Scatter. Often run by motor clubs as a simple and strictly amateur form of the sport. They are run to Navigational Rally rules, which are based on navigational skills rather than speed, and with usually a notable social element too. In the UK the rules are governed by the Motor Sports Association (MSA). All these events use Ordnance Survey 1:50000 Landranger Maps.

1. A 12-car rally is a type of car rally. At the start location crews will be given a set of Instructions. These provide information about the finish location, the position and timing of the control marshals and any details about cautions and black spots (no go zones).
The route is split up into a number of different sections. Each section employs a different navigational method of plotting the route on the map. The driver and navigator may work together to plot the route. They will have a set time to drive to the next control point. On the way round the competitors make a note of the “Code Boards” (numbers and or letters on a post) they pass, these boards are strategically placed around the route and are used to prove the competitor has gone on the correct route. Any missed boards are counted as “Fails” when the scores are being added up. The results are based on the minimum number of fails.

Maximum of 12 competing vehicles per event (hence the name)
Generally only standard road cars permitted.
Maximum 30 mph average speed only. No timing to the second permitted, only to the previous minute
Public Relations work as necessary if the route affects residential areas, this is as for a road rally but the requirements are not quite as strict
Route authorisation must be granted from the Route Liaison Officer (RLO) the MSA's local representative. The Police are informed of the event, though route information does not need to be submitted and approved.

2. A Navigational Scatter combines the fun of a treasure hunt and the skill of orienteering with the car.
At the start location crews will be given a set of Instructions. These provide information about the finish location, the position and timing of the control marshals and any details about cautions and black spots (no go zones).

Solving the clues. Clues have different point values according to their location and difficulty level. Solving the clues will provide a grid reference on your map and you should mark this on your map. It is the navigator's responsibility to chose a route between the points and direct the driver accordingly.
