I have my flights booked and done, just need to get the hotel sorted now.

Cheers,
Ollie

You have to fill out a form, fax it off then pay by bank transfer. far easier to just use booking.com (we're all in the hotel afroditi in nafpaktos)

I notice a few people are doing this event on older 520 exc's, could you tell me if the standard tank has enough range for this event? I have a 520 exc I am now thinking of doing the event on.

Thanks Lee.

The 520 has a standard fuel tank of 8.5ltr? You need a 150km fuel range, so I think you need a bigger fuel tank or a small extra tank.

True, I've fitted an 11 litre Clarke tank... something like 3 gallons IIRC, and not compatible with radiator fan kit.

With a conservative throttle hand (Lord knows the 520 needs it) I can get up to 170kms till dry.

Thanks, So I would need at least another 3 1/2 litres, have to see what I can come up with.

Ollie are you gonna race the 350?

And a tip: get rid of the original number plate. Scan it and print a smaller scale of it on laminated paper.
(Mine is barely 10x10cms). Those sharp metal edges give me the creeps...

Yes, I'm on the 350. Great bike, looking forward to see how that works in a rally. It misses some top speed compared to a 450. I'm taking different rear sprockets (48/50/52). Last ride was with 14:48, could do a comfortable 110 km/h, but missed a bit of power. Going to start with 50 on the rear I think...

Laminated plates are not allowed by race organizations and ofcourse police in the Netherlands. I'll see if I have some time left to make a laminated plate..

Ollie, let us know if you want to make one here and we can give it to you to install it on the race

HellasRally,

Any luck with the Route explanation as below?

thanks

PS - do we have to provide fuel canisters to the organization? or will all the refueling be in gas stations?

I have a few questions, whenever you've got the time...




The graphic above says that "Routes and Tracks information are subject of change on the 15th of February".
I guess since you have already checked the roadbook, they are the final Routes? If not, no problem.

What I don't get with this funky graphic is:

a) The format of the long days.

For example, Day 2, I can see 132kms of Liaisons and 245kms for Specials.

Then I have refueling points, I assume with distances between them? (RF1 22km, RF2 144km, RF3 78km).
So, cumulatively, the Refueling Points for the 377km Day 2 fall at:
RF1: 22kms
RF2: 166kms (RF1 +RF2)
RF3: 244kms (RF1 + RF2 + RF3)

with another 133kms to finish the 377km long day. Am I correct or fucking up the maths?



b) Is it possible to have the daily routes as (for example):

Day 2:
L1: 50kms
SS1: 100kms
L2: 50kms
SS2: 145kms
L3: 32kms

So that (as above), L1 + L2 + L3 = 132kms, and SS1 + SS2 = 245kms. That would be a great help to figure out where the Refuelling points fall in the liaisons.

Thanks in advance, no rush.
