A minimum of Third Party Insurance for all persons who will drive participating vehicles must be applicable for the duration of the event.

Scrutineering
The car must be taxed, have an MOT Certificate (if applicable) and a Certificate of Insurance – these should be available for inspection. The Driver will be required to sign a declaration confirming the car is insured and both Driver and Passengers are required to sign a Declaration, indemnifying the Organisers from liability, on the Signing On Sheet at the start of the Tour.

Controls
Route Check Code Boards may be in place to establish that the correct route has been followed.

Data Protection Act
Prospective entrants and participants are advised that information supplied on the entry form will be held on a computer and used for the administration of the event.
