Can you think of any costs a newbee to this kind of event might overlook?

Thanks Lee.
What is the cost of the ferry for a big van and how long will it take to get to greece?
Check Superfast website on line booking and count -40% for all prices excpet big trucks (over 5 tons -25%)

What would the toll road charges be to italy or all the way by road to greece?

Should be around 120 euros

Is petrol for the bike included in the entry fee?

No, Greece gasoline prices vary from 1.65 to 1.78 euros per lt

What insurance would I need and cost?

You get insurance (personal etc) in the race for 50 euros, third liability is included in the entry fee
Otherwise you use your ASN license or a FIM license

I have 2 sets of wheels for my bike, would 2 sets of new tyres fitted to the wheels do me for the rally?

Normally yes, your right hand defines that

Will one set of chain and sprockets do the whole event?

Normally yes, your right hand defines that and your chain lubricant

Would be wise to talk to Desert Rose or Torque Racing before, their logistics are really advanced and most probably your transportation cost with them is lower.
About this year's rally, things are different than past editions, new place for the race, softer terrain all the way, less navigation (not every 50meters) and normally not dusty in 80% of the stages due to high altitudes where you will even find some snow in the slopes (not on the road).
About Navigation Instruments if anyone want to hire in low cost, please let us know, we do have the ability to do it for a number of riders
