This event of skill and timing takes place on public roads, adhering to the rules of the Highway Code and requires participants to complete sections in a predetermined time, as well as special stages requiring split second accuracy. These special stages are completed at slow speeds without stopping the car and penalty points given for every 0.01 second difference from the allotted completion time. The winner is the team with the fewest penalty points throughout the day and will be presented with their awards at a glamorous prize giving ceremony and gala dinner.
