    I need a list of Cross Country Rally events around the world that use Navigational Roadbooks (Dakar style). I know the obvious targets, but am looking for a comprehensive list.

    Does anybody have this info, along with hyperlinks/contact info for each event? It would be a great help!


    I searched the forum...no luck.

    Muchas gracias in advance,

    Pretty much the same question was aked here 12 months or more, here is a "list" (the thread then digressed/went on to explain all the reasons why the OP couldn't get to any of the events he was "interested" in... but not much more info. on rally events themselves)

    Anyway here is that "list".

    :deal http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=16706596&postcount=2

    I also recall (another) thread on/about the same topic... that had a pretty comprehensive list... with links/website addresses to a great number of rally events on the calender (both FIM/CCR, and many non FIM/amatuer events)... but I am damned if I can find it in the morass of "rally" here in the RACING forum.

    Anyway, regards finding info. for you own needs... it may be a little more laborious, but if you type in "rally" in the search function window of the RACING FORUM (upper right hand corner of screen) you will get approx. 400 hits (several pages) of threads about (most) rallies that have occured around the globe for the last three/four years an most of them contain information - even direct links to the organisation website.

    If I do happen to find that "rally list/link" thread, (or anyone else knows where it is) please post it here. :clap

    Inmate biggles started a list about a year ago...
    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=719377

    In my little corner:

    - Serres Rally (Greece, late august, 5 days 1500kms), FIM cross country. Awesome. www.serresrally.gr/new
    - Rally Albania (Albania, duh, 6 or 7 days this year, 1700kms). Tough
    - TransAnatolia (Turkey, also 6 days I think, 1700kms approx). Haven't done it yet
    - Lepanto Rally 2013 (Greece, new event, previously Evia Rally, 5 days 1500kms). More relaxed, um, yeah. Did Evia last year, didn't like it.
    - Balkan Marathon (Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, 9 days, about 2000kms). Caters to cars & quads more than bikes.

    googling any of the above will take you to their website

    :205 Still tired after Rallye Maroc are we Brodo...? :wink: Or was it all the vodka at Cyril's after party? :rofl

    I found that list as well... but (as Dutchie also recalls - it would seem) there was a more comprehensive list/thread somewhere in here, with links etc. that I'll be vapour locked if I can find, just at the moment. :dunno

    Troy, if you know a better way than i do, for posting an excel file onto this forum, then send me an email address and ill send you my "list" of " rallies" the only reason the list mentioned above, didnt have more comprehensive info, was the fact i could not get an excel file to save correctly onto ADV.

    The file I have on my laptop, is updated with 70 events, prices, locations, dates and links.. more than welcome to it if any of you guys want it.. just PM and ill forward it onto you..

    Unfortunately being the OP mentioned above, life happens, if you dont like it.. well... at least i tried and things are on track now, having just finished my second rally for the year, sadly i live in the real world and plans dont always work out.

    OK, cheers for that Troy, appreciate the response.. to me, it came across as a dig for talking about something and then not following through. All under the bridge..

    Brodo got a copy of the latest spreadsheet, so he'll weave his Greek magic on it and post on here once its in a format that can be posted.

    Cheers

    Rally list available to download from Sendspace (valid link for a week)

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/fdclkv

    Remember, click only the light blue "Click here to start download from sendspace" button

    Tried making it a pdf but it refuses to include the links column, here is a crappy jpg, props if you can make out the letters though

    Cool list Ben, if anyone knowledgable could upload to Google docs we could amend info as it changes / becomes available I suppose?
