Simon,

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes we already have a vehicle. Fiat Punto (2006) reg. But unfortunately we can only have 3 persons on board, so You would have to come over here and get one sorted yourself.

We are awaiting the sign up to (Sept/Oct) to see what year it has to be, as being a 2006 registered vehicle then that might be just enough being 8 years young, otherwise we will have to sell the car to get a newer one.

This is one of the problems for all teams.

We are going on the rally organised by the adventurists.

Either that or look at our website to find out more.

If we were going the central route, we wouldn't cover so many countries. So we could potentially miss, 'The gates from Hell', Baikonur Cosmodrome and the Pamir Highway. Our goal really would be to get to Mongolia and finish.

As Tamir has said he could show us around his country as he is Mongolian.

If you wish to know more, get in touch.

Cost for central route : £1000 entrants, split by the numbers in team, Visa's £200 each person, Fuel £250 per person, Accommodation £50 - £250, Jabs £100+, Insurance £100 each person, insurance for car £100, and for tools/spares £200, Improvements to car £500 per person. All these prices are approx. (totaling Around £2000) per person.

Simon,

Either keep up-to-date on all rally events through my website, or the adventurists website.

We (Team Scrumptious) currently have 3 members of the team. Christine who lives in Washington,
is a possibility and maybe yourself.

If this is the case we would be looking at taking 2 vehicles and going in convoy, but the costs for the
other team members, would have to be split between them.

I belong to Team Scrumptious, but do not want to get dragged into the purchase of another vehicle,
if I can help it.

We currently have a 2006 registered Fiat Punto, which is 8 years old next year, if the trend is a year newer
each year we should be fine. We get to know a little more on sign up day, later in 2014.

I would like to keep it 3 in one car/vehicle. Maybe then 2 to 3 in other, if required.

Thanks

Matt

Hi matt thanks for keeping in touch sounds like you have things sussed. Don't think ill have the time to get things organised if i have to go through the process rather than jump in a vehicle.
