The Number Plate Game
When the horn goes off on air between 8am and 9am, look at the car in front and add up the numbers on the plate to get your score. If the plate was GB57 BEN you would add 5 + 7 for a score of 12 points.
The only twist is that if there is an X in the plate you can times the numbers, makes the maths harder but the score higher. If the plate was X356 MFM you would times 3 x 5 x 6 for a monster score of 90 points.
But if the X will actually reduce your score then you can choose to ignore it, for example with a 14 plate car you would score 5 by adding 1 + 4 , but only 4 if you if you multiplied them 1 x 4.
If there is more than one X in the plate they cancel it each other out and you can only add the numbers...cruel twist!
You can only score points from the car in front immediatley after the horn sounds on air.
Send us your scores by text, email or twitter and remember you can only play the game safely if you are not driving.
From time to time there will be the opportunity to earn bonus points at the discretion of Team GB.
We will announce high scores on air and Team GB's decision is final!
If you are in Pickering you can look out for the Number Plate Game holy grail which is a plate with an X in and 999 which is owned by Barbara Leigh and she will wave back if you see her when the car horn goes off...
