The Great Race is the most important part of Wings Wheels and Goggles. That is what it is al about for drivers/codrivers/pilots and navigators.
How does the Great Race work?
We team up a plane and a prewar car- the team. The team will receive a few tasks.
The Car has to visit 10 exact marker points at an exact given time. You may not be late or early. The route is given on a map.
The Plane has to visit 10 Marker points and fly within a 50 mtr radius over it in a dedicated from and to direction at a given altitude. The route is given by GPS points. To late or early is a penalty and to high or to low is also a penalty.
The times and altitudes will be recorded by our logger system. The difference between ideal and actual is the penalty and the team with lowest penalty wins.
On Saturday we will fly/drive 2 legs and we drive/fly 1 leg on Sunday. In one of the three legs the navigator will have to swop his place with his team mate. So codriver from the car goes into the plane and vice versa.
The organizing team.
Than the day is filled with excitement.
The Wing Walkers - jazz bands - flying demonstrations - shopping arcade - stun teams - para's and everything a man wants to see.
