Safaris in General

A Competitive Safari requires drivers to make a number of timed attempts at an arduous cross-country course leaving individually at regular intervals. Competitors are given an actual time for each attempt based on an average speed of between 30 and 40 mph. The course will normally be between 3 and 15 miles in length and the number of attempts required will result in an event distance of between 20 and 150 miles.

Marshalling at Safaris

As our Competitive Safaris have got more and more competitive, the pressures on both competitors and marshals have also increased. From the competitors' point of view they have a certain time allowance in which to complete the event and this dictates that they don't get stuck too often or for too long.
