Individuals can join at any time until 11 July, and can catch up with other participants if they correctly answer the puzzles. As the contest progresses, the puzzles will become increasingly harder to solve, with the final online clue e-mailed on 12 July.

Winners will only be eligible if they can produce the original treasure map upon conclusion of the hunt.Source: Volvo Cars, UK
