Damn! My wife got it last year. So does a couple 'here ' means married also? Do we have to show any marriage certificate in that case ?

EDIT: Guess I did not peruse.

Couple : Couple refers to a male and a female above 20 years of age as of June 22, 2009

+1 to that.

I've sent a mail to organizers to reconsider relaxing the rule (have included a link to this thread on the forum as well). If you can, please send a mail to gdsupport AT greatdrivingchallenge.com too. *Maybe*, HML may reconsider the rule, if they receive mails in great numbers.

PM me if you want the draft of the mail, which I sent to the organizers.

Regards,
Chirag Kantharia.

Awe swell man! That 'Maybe' will prove to be a huge 'maybe' as that would be the primary filter to a tsunami of responses.
