– Can any 4 × 4 vehicle participate? No. Only vehicles registered and insured can register as a participant and access the 4 × 4 tracks.

– Can a car without registration, without insurance, or without proof of ITV (UK’s MOT), participate? If your vehicle cannot legally travel on public roads, it cannot circulate on the tracks of Les Comes. A vehicle with these characteristics can only participate in exhibitions. In this case, the owner must always contact the organization through the email firstname.lastname@example.org to validate their participation in the exhibition.
