We're so excited about the fact you can now add photos to threads on MN that we're working with the RAC to run a photo-based competition!

You may have seen RAC's new winter TV ad which features a child RAC patrol getting his friend's vehicle started, and is meant to be a fun way of reminding people that winter driving comes with its own unique challenges. Here's what RAC says about it: "Last year we were called out to 385,000 car problems at home. This winter RAC will give you Free At Home cover if you select our Roadside and Recovery package, so we'll rescue you at the roadside, at home or take you and your car anywhere in mainland UK."

What RAC would like Mumsnetters to do is share photos of your DCs doing one or more of the following:

~ Dressing up as RAC patrol
~ Having fun playing with cars, toy garages etc
~ Just generally enjoying winter at home (we've got our fingers crossed for snow!)

So please upload your best photos - we really want to see your DCs enjoying themselves - maybe they have a favourite toy car you can't get them out of? Or perhaps they're fixated with Rory the Racing Car? Or Top Gear?! Whatever it may be, we'd love to see your photos.

There will be a prize draw open to all MNers who post a photo on this thread - one randomly selected poster will win a £70 ride-on retro Speedster and another will win a children's RAC-style patrol uniform.

RAC will then choose their top 10 from all of the photos posted on this thread. Mumsnetters will be asked to vote for their favourites in a competition running on Mumsnet in December. The 3 MNers whose photos get the most votes will win a Deluxe Metal Woody Wagon Pedal worth more than £250, a £70 ride-on retro Speedsters or a children's RAC-style patrol uniform. This will be done separately to the prize draw on this thread.

To be in with a chance of winning, post your photo(s) on this thread. We'll announce the top 10 by Thurs 6th Dec.

Thanks and good luck!
