Nothing officially announced to my knowledge.

I would keep the 29th - 31st March handy just in case.

The question is will the old 520 cope with another ride to condo and back.

I'm planning on being there too, on my trusty WR250R, modified slightly with the lessons learnt on this years Safari.

As a bit of a guide for a Condo newbie, is the Condo generally faster or more technical than the Safari? Stage distances? Do you need a service crew to meet you between specials, or does the course return to the bivouac during the day? Any info would be great, thanks.

I can't comment vs the Safari but I think the longest stage last year may have been 170ish km, you only return to the bivouac/show ground at night but each days lunch was at the same spot, ie if you have a crew the can meet you there. Last year they also did a fuel drop each day half way through a stage.

I luckily had my old man follow me around last year (he got a 'service crew' sticker for his ute which he was pretty chuffed about) but with the in stage fuel drops I could have made it (fuel wise) without support. I'm sure if your bike is kitted for the safari you'll have no issues at Condo.

Cheers

You do need a service crew to carry fuel for you as the service stops are out on the course away from camp.
When I get round to it i'll ask the organisers if maybe they could carry fuel for people who don't have a service crew. Might make life easier for some people.

I'm not sure how it compared to the safari, hopefully i'll find out in a year or two.

overall a bit tighter and a bit more techincal but still with some open faster bits, the 250R would be fine for Condo, dont need as much fuel though

you would love it, been 3 times and had a ball each time

Brilliant, I'm in

With the later date for Condo, do we have any word on the dates for the Yilgarn Rallye?

Good to see it won't clash with the scrapheap ride for once.

That's what I was thinking.

Easter was perfect, but I doubt I could get time of do it any other time of the year even if I really wanted to.

Strange move on there part.

They might have changed the date so they could use transponders.

Home page has been updated;

http://www.condo750.com.au/

Looks like they've moved the scrutineering to later on the Friday and the prologue to Saturday morning. That's probably better for people making the drive out there on the Friday.
