This was happening while we did not know it.
It worths every second of it.
How the people who just want to have fun, lived Hellas Rally Raid.
And the beauty of the race track, that now I get to know better myself.
Soon with some subtitling in English as I read.
A real honor for us, thank you guys, really thank you.

Engines started for Hellas Rally Raid 2014

The new edition of Hellas Rally Raid is ready and already accepted the first entries for the new challenge.


2013 edition was marked with success and happy faces among the 150 competitors from 16 countries spread from Israel & Turkey to Sweden and UK.


This year a second bivouac will be hosting the race after 3 days in Lepanto, since the race gets bigger to 1800klm of race with one Marathon stage and 10 selective stages.


The organizers have started with the roadbook of 2014 with 90% new tracks from last year.
From sea level to 2600m of mountain roads close to snowy slopes the race promises another big challenge for bikes, cars, buggies-SSV and quads.


All the winners of 2013 will be present in the starting line of 2014 while new entries are expected in the bike category with some Dakar participants to be there for a new adventure.


For the next edition the organization team have picked up some different tracks for bikes and cars in order to give all participants the challenge they deserve.


Car class is expecting some great entries with FIA cars while amateurs will be the backbone of the race with normal racing cars.


Top quality FIM-FIA standards roadbook, hi end on line tracking system, real time results for both viewers and competitors right at the finish of each stage will be there along with a vast fleet of medical and recovery crew with a medical helicopter to make competitor's life easier and more enjoyable along with a safe race.


Both bivouacs will be equipped with tire support, lubricants sales and oil disposal facilities, spare parts and mechanics available for all amateurs with no team support.
Entries are already open with a privileged entry fee for all classes, while women riders will be with only 200euros of fee.


Accommodation packages will be in low pricing in co-operation with the hotel Chamber of Nafpaktia to ensure high level service not only for the competitors but also for the families & friends that may travel to Greece during the race and enjoy their people racing while they have fun and other activities to fill their days of staying.


Hellas Rally Raid organization will anounce also a series of xtra race activities for them including some cultural trips around the area and plenty of sightseeing from the beautiful sea line of Nafpaktia to the mountain views of Ano Hora.


A real Rally raid in the east end of Europe, closer and cheaper than any other rally of the season.


Discounts will apply for all in Ferry lines from Italy to Greece and back while our logistics team will ensure lowest available prices in air tickets, rental cars and other facilities. Always with a view to the sea.
Stay tuned in www.hellasrally.org

All participants in that class will pay low entry and there will be a special trophy for them.
Already 4 registered from Italy and we are looking forward to have more on this.
Great Idea! :-)

A picture that marks what Rally Raid is all about:
Father and son together in the same Rally. The passion goes on to the next generation in the proper way.
Unfortunately Rolando is not with us anymore, he is now in his bigger rally raid, together with other friends we all miss.
In his honor Hellas Rally Raid will do the Veterans Trophy in 2014 and on. Federico, his son will be with us to give it to the winner.
We will miss him, his passion for our sports, his spirit.

hile entries are filling up fast 6 months before the race, Francesco Catanese and Johannes Lucas confirmed their entries for 2014.
Big guys with big bikes, fighting over for the 3rd consecutive year in Hellas Rally.
M4 was one of the most competitive classes of the race with these guys giving riding lessons
Someone else to join their class??

How difficult will the terrain be compared to last years event, assuming the weather is the same?

It is 90% weather depended but we move to some new areas with some high altitude flat lands.
I can give (it will be published on the website) the terrain mix end of November per stage with high accuracy.
Definitely more technical and more navigation, but not as rocky as last year for the 60% of the race.
Last winter extreme cold and severe rains is the reason you saw so many little rocks on the roads.
The winter is expected to be colder but dryer.
By the way did you find it hard or not last year??

Was my first navigation rally and hated the navigation and got lost a lot but understand if I want to do these events I need to learn the nav.

Very much enjoyed the rally but a few more difficult bits maybe with longer chicken runs if needed would be good.

Thanks Lee.

Doctor gave me the green light, my back is ok.
Will meet Torgue Racing on Saturday to talk about Race assistance and I will ask a lot of noob questions :-)

I'm working on fitness and to get some bike time.
Also started to prepare the bike, KTM EXC 450.

Here a noob question
Rear Wheel : Cush Drive or Normal?
Tires: I have usually Metzeler MCE 6 Days. Do I need something else?
I have a set of Deserts

Welcome aboard

I'm sure that Martin and Donna at Torque will answer these questions, but here are my thoughts, based on this year's Hellas and Serres rallies on a KTM 520:

There's no need for a cush drive, almost all of the riding is off road. Of course, if you already have one, you could use it, but no need to get one specially for this event

I did this year's Hellas on enduro tyres - Michelin rather than Metzler - and they wore out very quickly (3 tyres in 4.5 days) I changed to Maxxis IT's for the Serres and they were perfect. Desert's will be too hard wearing and lethal if we have rain or snow

I can echo what Cadman said. We used Maxxis rear tyres this year on the rally (IT) and they did really well. We didnt change tyres until the end of thursday, and then it was only the rear. We used Maxxis IT rear and Metzeler 6 days extreme front, both front and rear with michelin desert mousses.

def no need to go out and buy a cush drive.

I would make sure that you have a water bladder in your pack which can take at least 3 litres and make sure you fill it full again at the service halt.
