How does it work? ||
Typically, when one conjures up notions of a follow-the-leader type tour, one might imagine a scenario where everyone runs a steady pace, often dictated by the slowest participant, or a reserved guide. I found the tour let each of us play at our own pace and were allowed plenty of freedom to get ourselves into trouble if we so chose. That is to say, WIDE OPEN doesn’t want you to trash the cars, but certainly lets you push them to your limits. Fun Indeed! You either drive with a friend or by yourself. Wide Open does not put any guide or staff with you in the car!
Radio communication is used between all the cars, with drivers and co-drivers having a radio sets in their helmets. The lead guide storms ahead and relays back turn information and terrain cautions to the cars based on odometer readings clicked off on the Lowrance GPS unit in each car. "Caterpillar" stops are used on occasion to regroup or hold a car at a stop point until the next car arrives. This helps keep the group on the same trail and moving forward, with minimal stop time or delay. Once our group got comfortable with communicating we had a fun rhythm going with keeping the cars moving at a good pace.
