We've just posted the entry information on the website. Here are the details:

Rally Diabolico Entries open 10 January, 2014

Early Entry Fee (10 January, 2014 - 10 February, 2014):
• Moto/Quad: $1950us (per moto)
• Car/Truck/UTV: $2150us (per vehicle)
• Crew Bivouac Pass (per person): $200


Late Entry (11 February, 2014 - 10 March, 2014):
• $200us additional for race Entry
• $50us additional for crew Bivouac Pass

Entry will be done using an online entry/registration system, with payment made by credit card at that time.

Paid Entry includes the following:
• Four days of racing (if you DNS/DNF a stage, you can still race the next stage).
• Bivouac Pass for each competitor (showers and toilets provided).
• Breakfast and dinner in the bivouac for each competitor, and dinner at the awards party.
• Up to 5 gallons of gas for each moto or quad at the mid-stage gas stop on Stage 2 and Stage 3.
• Race Insurance.
• Number plate stickers.

Bivouac Pass
Each non-competitor (crew member) will need a Bivouac Pass ($200us), which covers breakfast and dinner, showers, toilets, start/finish access, etc. in the bivouac. The Bivouac Pass also includes the post-race awards dinner and party at the host hotel. Nobody will have access to the bivouac area or awards dinner without a Bivouac Pass.

Location Information
Pre-race registration and a post-race dinner and awards party will be held at a hotel in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico, just over the border from Yuma, Arizona. The host hotel (to be announced soon) is just a few minutes from the San Luis border crossing. The bivouac is less than half an hour drive from the host hotel, and it will remain at that location for the full event. Competitors are welcome to stay at the bivouac, the host hotel, or any other place you choose. Since Stage 1 starts at the host hotel, and the post-race awards party will be at the host hotel, for convenience competitors may consider staying at the hotel the night before the race and the night of the awards party, and enjoy the bivouac during the race.

The all dirt remote bivouac is easily accessible by any vehicle, including large motorhomes and vehicles with large trailers.

Additional Information
Car/Truck/UTV race categories and rules are being defined now, and will be announced by January 10th.

A schedule and other details about the rally are available on the RallyDiabolico.com website, check the "Entry" page.

Scott,

Did you ever definitively say what the moto fuel range requirement will be? I see that we'll have fuel stops in some stages. But, how long will we need to go? Any option for on-the-clock additional fueling?

Just asking because I may need to buy some fancy imported fuel tank to make it, and those sometimes take months to get here. Might need to order it very soon.

fun fun
Charlie

Two one gallon milk bottles and a 3 gallon gas tank should do fine!

The current plan is what's on the Details page on the website (155mi).

I'm looking at the possibility of adding "on the clock" gas stops to accommodate those who don't have rally-ready bikes. I'd rather not do that because it gets away from the autonomous nature of rally. But I also don't want to loose entries because of gas. If we are able to add gas stops, it would end up being 3 gas stops total for those who need it. One at roughly 85 miles (on the clock), one at half way point (15min mandatory stop for all motos), and one 85 miles from the finish (on the clock). This would be the case for two stages. I'll be talking to Darren about this when he gets back from Dakar in a couple of days, and I'll post what we decide to do.

Fortunately, Diabolico will have none of this!

From the web site:

Gas Range

More is better


We have yet to finalize the routes for each stage, but we can give you an idea how it's looking as of right now (end of October). The longest stage may be approximately 220 miles (350km). We have plans to have a moto/quad mandatory "neutralized" 15 minute gas stop at approximately the half-way point. So, motos/quads need a gas range of something over 110 miles (177km). BUT, parts of each stage are in dunes, which require far more gas than normal. So, we feel you should have a standard gas range of at least 155 miles (250km) in order to make it 110 miles with some dunes and small navigation errors. As the routes are refined over the coming months, we'll update this gas range notice. So be sure to check back in here to see what the latest news is.

We expect 155 mile range may be more than some motos/quads can make. We're considering additional gas stops "on the clock" for those who can't make 155 miles.

For reference, Dakar moto/quad rules require 250km plus 20% range, which is 186 miles (300km).

UTV's, cars, and trucks, should be prepared to go the full length of the longest stage on one tank of gas. Considering the dunes, that means you should have a range of at least 310 miles. We expect that may be too far for some of you, so we're working on a plan to allow a mid-stage gas stop for you. This would not be a place where your crew would pit you. It would be manned by Diabolico personnel only, and race crews would not be allowed in the area. Since this is a standard cross-country rally, mid-stage pitting by crew is not allowed at all.

Non of my business but I'd make folks buy a larger tank. A couple grand to enter plus travel plus plus...a large tank shouldn't be a deal buster.

Wish I could attend, hope everyone has a fun race
