Do we need a GPS?
Yes you will need a GPS. You will be provided with a .gpx track file and the coordinates. In order to follow the course and find the waypoints you will need a GPS that you can enter coordinates into. A ‘navman’ style road GPS will not work.
What is Rally Safe and Do we need it?
Rallysafe is a satellite tracking device, it is how we follow you and track your progress. It also lets you know when you have reached the virtual waypoints. You must reach all of these waypoints.
