In 2016, Brit Butt Light 8 was titled "DragonChaser" with a Dragon theme - bonus locations included copper, red, and green dragons, carved wooden dragons, and stainless steel dragons. Bonuses were to be found as far east as the North Sea coast, as far south as Swansea, and as far north-west as Anglesey.
Feedback from the riders was excellent, with one commenting "By 10.30am I had completely lost the plot......but I've had an absolutely amazing day's ride!".
Riders were able to enlist the aid of a Knight in their endeavours, which gave additional points for a set number of Dragon bonuses. They also had to have their photo taken with a specific 18" tall rubber dragon, which was only available for 2 short periods during the day.
Scoring was more refined than in previous years, apart from a minor software glitch, which lead to some confusion as certificates were given out and prizes awarded. This was quickly resolved, and most riders left the finish venue with the correct certificate. Outstanding errors were corrected by e-mail and post over the next couple of days.
