THOSE looking to wet their feet in rallying can do so this Sunday at Hope Gardens, St Andrew, as the Jamaica Classic Car Club (JCCC) will open their Mug Rally series to the general public.

"The event is open to all and will start at 1:00 pm," Shane Angus, president of the JCCC told Auto.

For the small fee of $1,000 per car, anyone can enter any roadworthy vehicle and vie for a trophy to be handed out to the top three finishers. Mug rallies, or navigational rallies are not speed events, but instead require a team to decrypt a set of given instructions to follow a specific path as laid out by the organisers. The aim is to complete the course with the least errors possible, as time penalties are accessed for infractions.

"They will also have to answer questions about objects along the route," he explained.

The route will have its start and finish at Hope Gardens, but take entrants through the Mona area.

"There's no maximum size for the team, so each car can be filled with friends or family," Angus said.

Later this month on the 31st, the JCCC will head to Mandeville's Brooks Park for what it hopes will be its largest event for the year, a show with up to 100 classics on display for all to see.
