We are really looking forward to this rally now! We were down this November to race the 24h Rally Raid Athens with the same orga and the whole rally was incredibly good and a few hours after making it to the finish we wanted to come back (eventhough we were a "bit" tired)! Very safe rallying (is there such a thing??) with incredible riding.

Can't wait to get to Nafpaktos now and catch up with my greek friends!!

Hey David!

I think the tracks this year are going to be amazing, I have a country home near to where the race will take place and used to do all sorts of exploring on my old SC620 back in the day, I hope it will be a great race. Kom svenskarna!

Could we have more info on Paddock?

Is possible to camping into the paddock? Are available: toilet, showers, electricity...into the paddock?
I prefer to stay into the paddock, but in case this is not possible:
is there any camping close to the paddock?


Thanks.

Close to bivouac you have some place for camping, toilets and showers.
No wi-fi but lots of cafes and restaurants have plenty of it in walking distance.
No organized camping close to the race.
Hotels though are cheap, 3 stars and up and prices starting from 40 euros per double with breakfast (which you will need )

There seems some confusion over what licence and or start permission we in the uk need for this event, I spoke to the ACU the governing body of 2 wheeled motorsport in the uk and they said they had had a number of enquries about the Hellas rally and had looked at the regs for the event but still unsure if we need an international licence or not, if we do that means extra cost and a medical

Hi Hellas,
thanks.
Last question I have is about the GPS equipment for roadbook riders:
I see is mandatory to have one available for safety reason.
Would be possible to use a Garmin V for this purpose only?

Thanks X.

Is there any news about the minibuses from the airport on the 19th? We also need to get back to the airport on the 27th, is there a plan to have minibuses for that day?

Also what are your approved GPS units? Or are we using units provided by you?

Mini Buses could be arranged by mailing accommodation@hellasrlly.org
we provide GPS trackers for real time tracking, your GPS is required only for your safety reasons.
You can use any type of GPS device that could drive you to a village or a safe place in case everything goes wrong.
Only in the case of adventure raid participants there are specifications for the GPS devices.

In all fairness they didn't really check stuff like that last year, maybe at scrutineering (the obligatory flares, survival blanket etc) but not too much afterwards...

I think the GPS is for your own safety - in case you want to abandon a stage and find the nearest way back to the bivouac
