Do we not think this might be better called the Citroën Scottish Challenge? Especially as it is open to (presumably) non-Scottish Citroëns too? ;)

Just a thought.

By the way; Irn-Bru have their own tartan. Fancy that. lol

You could always call it Citroen Challenge Ecosse

I hope it's open to non-Scottish Citroens - Mine's Welsh :D

I thought I'd quickly draft a plaque using the Scottish flag made up of Citroen chevrons and Irn Bru Tartan (yes, really) but in blue, not orange so we get the Scottish Blue theme going. I can do some variations but it's always good to get feedback sooner rather than later. As I said, this is a rough draft only.

Need some start and finish information but whaddya think?

Yes it looks really great but can we have En dash rather than a hyphen in the dates... Sorry I'm really picky.

No worries. I'd also like to put the start/finish locations either side of the 2013, so when we know those....

I've tweaked it a bit, and thought the 2013 bit was better treated differently. Otherwise all the type is white and it could lack differentiation. OK?
