The event has also been brought forward:
"Dates: As you know the intended dates were 4th October-2nd November 2014. However, for some time there have been concerns about the weather on the European Leg of the Event at that time. Another concern, expressed by the organisers of the Silver Fern Rally in New Zealand, was regarding some of their regular entrants not being able to get their cars back to that side of the world in time for that event which takes place in November 2014. September/October was considered but these dates clashed with the other commitments of many of the organising team.
So we have decided to bring the date of our event forward to 12th April to 11th May 2014. You can see the updated Programme on our website at Home
The route has also been 'abridged':
"Route: Whilst 2014 may seem a long way in the future and the current Middle East problems may have been resolved by then, organisational requirements are such that we have to decide now on the countries the Event will visit. We also have to take into account the number of days a route will take to traverse. We have, therefore, reluctantly taken the decision to restrict the countries to Australia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, France, England, and Wales."
Most importantly car eligibility has been extended from 1975 to 1981, opening up the event to many more vehicles.
Seriously thinking about raising the RX7 a bit, fitting body protection, swapping out the 13B for its old 12A and visiting London. Guess that would also mean missing Targa in 2014.
An RX7 isn't the perfect car for the event but running the one you have is a lot cheaper than building a new one and I am sure Jon Waterhouse can set us up in something to run the distance. After all it's only five Targa Tasmania's run end to end with a bit of gravel thrown in!!!
