Treasure hunt route revealed

Last year the treasure hunt raised almost 4,000TL for the Civil Emergency Service Volunteers (CESV 112), with 81 passengers and drivers taking part in 22 cars – and the charity will again be the beneficiary of this year’s 65km event which begins at Çatalköy’s The Kitchen restaurant, next to Tempo supermarket.

Cars are expected to be flagged away at around 10am, with registration open from 8.45am, allowing entrants to have breakfast in the restaurant if they wish.

A lunch, courtesy of sponsors Creditwest Bank, will be available at the finish, Cengiz’s Waterfall Restaurant in Esentepe, where cars are expected to begin arriving at around 1pm. A quiz is also to be held, along with award presentations.

Entry this year costs 40TL, or 25TL for children aged 12 or under. Collection points for entry forms are still to be confirmed but those interested in taking part can can email

Mr Gabb said he hoped competitors would “find the navigation less tortuous than those sections that caused entertainment last year”, with longer sections of main road, but added: “The questions may prove more testing – wait and see.”
