Firebore's plans changed again

Hi JMo, Albert

I did get in touch with torque racing and martin and Donna were very helpful.

So helpful I did their navigation course spread out over two days, first day learning about gps and how to use it along with a roadbook. Second day was putting it into practice on some trails up in hertfordshire. Nice to make mistakes here and gain valuable experience so as not to mess it up during a rally. Great for a newbie like me!

Plans changed again and found space in a van so going to do Hellas rally in April.

Now looking forward to going to Morocco.

Bob

Excellent news Bob!

The courses that Donna & Martin run are very well received, and I'm so glad to hear it's inspired you to come to Greece after all!

A few days with Mick practicing in the sand in Morocco, and I reckon you're confidence will be just fine!

I'll also be at the Hellas with Torque Racing, as we will be debuting the new 450cc LC4-engined Dakar bike there... what do you mean you've not see then the thread yet?! http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...php?p=20578283

Looking forward to seeing you there!
