Yesterday Sunday August 19th 11 crews assembled at The Compass In at Tormarton for the Summer Jogularity event put on by Jerry Pennell and Nick Chapman.
We were to experience an excellent slickly run event of about 40 miles taking in the area around Badminton and Hawkesbury Upton on good roads with a particularly good section running back through Horton to finish back at The Compass Inn.
The results were announced promptly and well done to Ray Sissins and Julian Ellis in the Nissan Micra who were the winners.
Congratulations to Ken and Sarah Binstead in the Audi instead of the rally MGB who finished in second place.
Many thanks to Jerry and Nick for putting on the event and also thanks to the marshals Mike Patton, Colin Biles and Stan Cole for manning the controls.
Bath MC are running a Summer Jogularity on Sunday August 19th 2018 starting and finishing at The Compass Hotel, Tormarton, Nr Badminton, (GL9 1JB) from 13:00 hrs for approx 45 miles, details in the regulations
Please find attached the regulations and entry form for the event
Start & Finish: The Compass Hotel, Tormarton, Nr Badminton, (GL9 1JB)
Times: Signing on from 13:00, first car away 14:01. Results approx. 17:15.
Our aim for this event is to make it a social event with time for fun. Therefore we have decided to run it on a Sunday afternoon starting at 14.00hrs, using roads safe to do so and at speeds compatible to the daylight conditions.
The event will run as jogularity, meaning you will be issued with route instructions in a road book complete with marked maps in case you get lost, giving you inter and total mileages, in line with your normal speedometer in your car (no trip meter required) landmark and/or junctions and information, plus the time you should arrive at that point. What we will do is to set up intermediate and time controls at certain landmarks and you need to arrive on time. For lateness or early arrival you will collect penalties.
The complete route will be timed at average speeds from 15mph to 30 mph. The idea is to encourage Bath and neighbouring club members to use any form of transport to have a go. This is simple straightforward navigation, easy to achieve average speeds with the need to concentrate and follow the correct route.
