What do I need?
Simply find a reliable car making sure it is registered, insured and air conditioned for the soft ones amongst us and ready to go on an adventure. You will only need a car (2wd) , as 4WD not allowed as this is a car rally not an offroad rally. However there will be rough and corrugated roads so be prepared. If you want to modify your vehicle i.e; bash plates,shocks etc that is up to you, however it is not needed.
Each day you will be issued with the days next planned stopover destination you will travel to and with time permitting we will stop at schools,councils etc to show our support to their towns . We will the make the directions as simple as possible for the people who cannot follow directions. But dont worry you shouldnt get lost as there will be a support vehicle behind each team to help you along the way. Well thats as long as support can follow directions too!!

Now for the Cars
2 drivers per car – this is not negotiable
Your cars are not going to be the greatest most reliable piece of machinery you have ever came into contact with, and the majority of them are definitely not going to know what hit them, especially on some of the roads, some cars will make it others will not. Cars that encounter mechanical issues will be trailered by support crews to the next camp location, if repairable by all of the self confessed bush mechanics then all good, however if not repairable the owner can place it on one of the trailers if they are still available to transport back to rally end location, owner must help with travel expense of the towing support vehicle if they want to keep vehicle (thus the reason for having a cheap but reliable car), and this is the reason for two people per car.
Your car is a rolling billboard for your team and your sponsors so make sure it is ready for an adventure.
