Miglia Quadrato 2014

I am contacting you on behalf of the United Hospitals and University of London Motor Club. For over fifty years we have been running a unique event - the Miglia Quadrato. For those of you who may not have heard of it, this is a competitive motoring event held entirely within the City of London, with the full co-operation of the City of London Police and the Corporation of the City of London. As a treasure hunt it is an exempt event - for which a certificate of exemption (number 81519) is issued by the MSA. We have approval to invite members of both recognised and unrecognised motor clubs and members of the public.

Consequently, we should like to invite you and your members to enter. I append a PDF of the regulations for this event - should you require paper copies please let me know. [In order to make the attachment as small as possible we have excluded the normal cover illustration.] We do appreciate that we may not have given as much notice as you would wish, but are sure you will understand we cannot issue regulations until all permissions and authorisations have been received.

The 2014 Miglia Quadrato is the fifty-fourth such event and will run on the night of 17/18 May. It is unique in that it takes place entirely within the City of London. The challenge is to navigate on a 1:10000 map and to locate points to within a ten metre square - where the answer to a question should be sought . There are no cryptic or catch questions - but that is not to say the task is easy. Indeed, many seasoned crews return each year and competitors with full rally experience will be as challenged as those with no such experience. It truly is an event for all. A history of fifty years attests to that. With its accessibility to crews of up to six it can be a very enjoyable social event. But if you prefer the two-crew format there is a separate classification for this.

Every year we get entrants from around the country. The fact that many travel considerable distance and return each year is another indication of its appeal. We are looking forward to attracting another large entry - we appreciate your help with this.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to ask.
Sincere regards,
John Gilbert
