    Any one doing or following this Cross Country Rally starting in Pattaya on the 12th August?

    I was keen to compete in it this year as I will be over in Vietnam at that time but missed the entry close off date. Was hard to get info on it for a while.

    I am thinking of attending the start if possible to sus it out for next year, I see they do sidecars and always wanted to have a blast at that. I have a year to build one now I guess.

    Looks like some nice country they will be travelling through gets close to the VN border on the penultimate stage so if the course whereabouts was known I would love to nip over the border and take a look at them flying past.

    Any info appreciated.

    Cheers

    Oh and BTW if anyone also has suggestions for GPS maps for the Vietnam/Cambodian area I would love to get suggestions; to go in a Garman 62s

    I can't specifically say for Vietnam and Cambodia but I used this for my Thailand and Laos trip and it was good.

    Download the maps you want and put them on an sd card to put in your device, if it takes them, I used the mapping on the Garmin Montana 600
    I also did all my route planning and POI's on Basecamp using this mapping.
