    Wonderful event for kids. Maybe the BPS could organise one for cars as was done many years ago by BIAM. It it tested parking skills, reversing skills through poles, judgement skills for height, width & length of vehicle along with some basic vehicle knowledge. No speed events except in parking & reversing through poles.

    Great fun for those who can drive. Humbling for those who find out they are not as good as they thought.
