London to Cape Town World Cup Rally 2012

The Long Way Down - Against the Clock

London to Cape Town Rally Briefing


Over 20 crews attended a briefing session today at the Newbury Hilton Hotel for a navigation seminar by Alan Smith, and a Garmin GPS teach-in by Kim Bannister, followed by a navigation run round the lanes in the dark. All reckon it proved a worthwhile “breaking of the ice” although the run was held in torrential rain.

A Datsun 240Z with four wheels on the roof, a VW Karmann Ghia with one wheel on the roof, Volvos, Mercedes, Toyota pick-up trucks, all with their day-glo door panels certainly turned a few heads driving out of Newbury.

Crews now have only one day left for final packing and fettling before meeting up the Brooklands museum on Sunday.
