    The Royal Berkshire Shooting School has teamed up with premium automotive retailer Stratstone and David Duggan Watches to present a shooting competition like never before.



    The Stratstone Super Seven Challenge will offer entrants the chance to compete for one of seven brand new supercars worth up to £100,000 each. They are a Porsche 911 Carrera 2S Cabriolet, Range Rover Vogue, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jaguar F-Type V8 S, Morgan Aero Supersport, Jaguar XKR-S Coupe plus the all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport.



    Launched in association with The Times and The Sunday Times and The Sunday Times Driving, the Stratstone Super Seven Challenge will open on 1 October 2013 and run for four months with entrants able to enter as many times as they wish.



    Entry costs just £50, which includes 50 warm-up birds plus two attempts at the Challenge, which sees competitors shoot at a sequence of 25 driven birds off the legendary 120-foot Tower. The 20 highest scoring individuals on the Tower alone will then go through to a final where, if the overall winner shoots 23 or more of the 25 birds, he or she will win the car of their choice.



    The entrant scoring the highest out of 100 during the qualifiers will win a classic, highly collectable gentleman’s Rolex GMT Master wristwatch from 1987 complete with original box, certificate and instructions with a market value of £5,000 courtesy of David Duggan Watches. The side-by-side shooter scoring the highest out of 100 during the qualifiers will win £2,000 of Really Wild Clothing.

    The Royal Berkshire Shooting School’s Managing Director, Dylan Williams commented: “Never before has a shooting competition offered such an exceptional prize fund with such prestigious global brands involved. The Stratstone Super Seven Challenge will appeal to game shooters as much as clay shooters, as the birds are designed to mimic high West Country-style pheasants. Since we founded the Royal Berkshire in 1991 we believe this is the most prestigious initiative we have established and our super seven instructors look forward to the start of the competition.”



    Stratstone’s Managing Director, James Brearley, added: “This competition offers one shooter a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the most coveted cars on the market today. With a prize of such magnitude on offer, the pressure to win will be immense. We are also giving every entrant a voucher worth £250 to be redeemed against any Stratstone new car purchase between October 2013 and 2014.”

    Sounds like an event tailor made for George Digweed...

    Since there are so many people who "crush" 65 yard crossers, it should be a cinch to break ~40 yard near-full-belly-on clays. £100,000 just for turning up really. Hell, there will probably be a few experts ruminating over the breaks too and whether the lead should be adjusted a smidge.

    More seriously, these types of thing are a bit addictive like slot machines. It's quite easy to hit some of the targets most of the time, but very hard to hit all of them almost all of the time.

    So it sounds like Digweed is the only guy on the planet that can do this???

    I would have thot that Remington or Winchester, or Fiocchi or Kolar or SOMEBODY would be packing a bag for their fave boy here in the US and sending him off to clean up on this giveaway!

    You telling me that ATA, NSSA-NSCA, PITA, USA Shooting, none of those things got a shooter that can do this?

    Sad day, man. What would Capt. Bogardus have to say about that?


    PS - Andrew, know what you mean about those "crushers". wink wink knudge knudge
