Monte Carlo or bust Rally
#41
I think whatever we buy, for £100 or £500, will need a repair of something, and then more bits to prepare it, but that's all to be expected. 

The benefit to having more people in less cars is that it would help spread the costs, but having more cars would lend to more fun and antics. 

We've got plenty of time, but it'll need some planning and commitment of course.

I'm definitely ready, willing and able for this. As you say Lee, plenty of time to plan. I do think we should say, the summer of 2019. That gives a year and a half to buy and plan. Right that's the date sorted. Next, we just need to ascertain - who's in and up for it. Depending on, how many go for it, we then decide - wheather we do it in two's as a top gear challenge type thing or a solo gig. That depends on who and how many are up for it. Docs right on the car front, a Volvo or Saab is possibly the way forward. I'm open this though. Doc in a support is a fantastic idea. All fuel costs etc will have to go into one pot. It will take some planning - but that's half the fun. So first we need, rough Date, how many people and whic Rally we are going for. Should I start a new thread? Or carry on with this one?

2019 sounds like a plan

I think it has to be Monte Carlo or bust for me. Have a read of the Itinerary. It's only a few days with taking in a lot. I reckon we do this one chaps. What you say?

It would be good if they listed the price. Something I've seen mentioned is that some of these rallies are quite polished but ultimately are based on making money for the organisers, personally I'd rather make money for a charity. I'm not saying the MonteCarlo peeps are doing that, it's just something to look for.

I've seen a few other options, when I get a chance I'll gather them all up and we'll whittle down a bit of a shortlist.

Hmm...

You ARE pretty good at organising these things Lee....

You've got the job as far as I'm concerned... anyone else trust this awfully nice chap?

#54
No I reckon it's a team effort Doc  Wink

To be fair we can't sign up for anything so it's a bit rudimentary, even the 2018 runs are only just coming online. 

Basically they are all the same - buy cheap car, decorate, drive to somewhere in Europe taking the piss on the way. We only need to decide who go with in at least 12 months.

Even looking at cars it is still a bit too early in my humble...

I'm kinda of sifting through Rally options Lee. We'll get a few together and make a decision on which one (collectively) as far as a car is concerned, my plan is - buy a banger soon, then I can have the time to get running and put my Mancriders Gorrila stickers on. Whatever happens, however it happens. I will be doing this on 2019.

Still searching for our elusive banger. I now have £500 dabs set aside, so I’m ready to pounce if the right one apears. I’m currently looking for a MRK 2 RS 2000 Escort with a cosworth engine, but I can’t seem to find one for some reason.  Confused

Anyways! The search is on.

I saw one of them for £300 the other day, you should have said earlier.

Probably  Laugh

I did recently pass a decent looking Volvo V70 with a £395 tag in the window which I thought would be a good contender.
