The Arctic Challenge is a tour for passenger cars through Schotland, with the primary aim of highlighting the unique driving experience of the participants. Additionally, it is a great test for yourself, your teammate and your vehicle. You can see how you deal with tiredness, challenging situations and team spirit. A charming aspect is that many teams use this tour to collect donations for a charity of their choice. This is by no means mandatory. Everyone makes a personal choice on this.
A team is two persons only
Do not expect the Arctic Challenge Tour to be a holiday trip with plenty of time and space for visiting sights. The teams drive 2,000 to 2,500 km in eight days. There is a resting day. However, all teams may participate in a zomer activity and an additional leaderboard challenge. The Highland Challenge Tour stretches across a number of legs. You are expected to use smart navigation to find the ideal route, always observing all traffic regulations. There will be additional leaderboard challenges that will count towards the final score for each leg, and eventually towards the final ranking. The participants do not know in advance which route they will be driving. The organisation determines the number of legs and the distance of each leg. Just before the start, each team is given the first checkpoint. Each leg may consist of several checkpoints. Based on these checkpoints, you will determine the route you want to use. The checkpoints are communicated to the teams by the ‘BackOffice’. The participants can find the checkpoints on road maps, and/or enter them into a navigation system or laptop with a route planner. You then decide on the quickest or shortest route to the checkpoint.
If you want to win a great trophy, you need to score the maximum points on both the legs and the challenges.
This Challenge offers easy entry in many respects: eight days on the road, no visa required, use your own car and minimal tuning. This is a short Challenge that you should in principle be able to complete with any MOT-certified car.
The 2021 entry fee is € 4490,00 per team including hotel accommodation, breakfast, lunch (during the two resting days/activities only), dinner, activities.
