20 day rally across Southern Australia
20th October to 8th November 2021
We have had a very strong interest in the running of Perth to Sydney Oct-Nov 2021. Everyone, it seems, is keen to get out and about and Australia is one of very few countries where we have a realistic chance to run an event in 2021. We are in talks with the Endurance Rally Club of Australia, several members of which have already put their names forward for this event.
The vast majority of the route has already been surveyed as part of the now deferred 2021 London to Sydney Rally. All accommodation has been identified, electronic maps compiled – it is a great route and most of the hard work is behind us.
In creating the route for the London to Sydney we set a limit of 70 days to complete the 21,000km journey across the world and achieving this inevitably meant sacrifices along the way in terms of destinations and routing. That is to say that with Perth to Sydney this time constraint can be relaxed somewhat and will run the event over 20 days. This enables us to incorporate additional sections, especially in the Flinders Ranges, which we previously had to strip out.
Over the course of the 20-day event there will be 3 rest days, including a 2-night stay in Melbourne to coincide with the Melbourne Cup.
Expressions of Interest
Given where we are with the ever-evolving Coronavirus saga and Government policies/restrictions changing tack on a daily basis, we are not asking for a financial commitment at this stage. Simply get in touch and register your interest, without obligation. This will enable us to gauge numbers and continue development of the event.
We regularly review Covid-19 travel restrictions and will write to all on 1st February 2021 at which point we will either request a deposit from you or advise that we are postponing the event.
