Maria ,why not have an economy run,find a spot out your way that has picnic grounds, say about 50 kms., round trip, shorter if you want depending on time, Find a big servo that will let you use a couple of their pumps, fill the cars under supervision and send them off at 3min intervals, drive to the picnic, check them in, allow an hour for lunch, then send them back to the servo to refill. You will have to work out the route,and give them a route map, throw in a couple of questions, eg., what color is the house at 8 Smith St., you can also have check points , to make sure they all go the same way. Have classes based on engine size. Give them plenty of time, so no speeding, but put a time limit on the finish. Say 2 hrs to get there, 1 hr for lunch, 2hrs back . If that doesn't suit you, make it an observation run. same method but no servo involved but a set route , with lots of questions along the way, I think Time or Speed trials are illegal now on public roads. Have fun Keith

Maria, First, you need to have enough interested starters, Charge a small entry fee , and put the money into some good prizes, you can also look at your local retailers for sponsorship, like free meals at Macca's, Movie passes etc., Print some entry forms ,Tell them where and when the start and finish will be,When you decide where to go and which way, You will need to drive around the route a few days before with your helpers to make sure it is easy for the competitors to follow your directions, don't make the route too hard, and keep it as safe as you can, You need to set a time limit, you can work it out from the time it takes you to set the course, add a little extra time just in case. At the start give them the route instructions on paper , You can start the cars at intervals to save bottlenecks.Make sure where ever you choose to start there is plenty of space for parking, maybe a public park. If it turns out to be a big affair you should let the local police know out of courtesy Keith
