  • Supplementary Regulations are available on the website (note: the website was down but now back online)
  • Rally Guide 2 is due to be published on Friday 7 October.
  • As per previous information, team containers are due to be available at Angsana SP on Saturday 22 October.
  • I expect to do customs inspections on Friday evening, 21 October.
  • My local mobile in Malaysia will be +61 13 612 7784 (013 612 7784 locally)
  • Any questions regarding transfers from Singapore Changi airport, I can provide contact details for reliable transfer service from Changi to Grand Paragon Hotel.
  • We are on a tight schedule to ship from Malaysia to next rally in India. Customs inspections will take place on Monday 31 October at Angsana SP, then moved directly to Pasir Gudang port.
  • If you have any special requests for the layout of your service area in Angsana, please advise myself and organisers as soon as possible.

India Rally

  • Yet another reminder that India Rally 2016 will be held Saturday 3 December to Monday 5 December.
  • Team containers will be railed from the port of Chennai to Inland Customs Depot (ICD) Bangalore.
  • This is where customs inspections will take place.
  • Teams should allow to have at least 1 staff member on site for both the import and the export customs inspections. IMPORT 25 November – EXPORT 7 December. Note: these dates are still to be confirmed.
  • Bangalore has an international airport served by most major airlines so is the natural choice for entry/exit India. I have been given advice on hotels close by the customs inspection depot. I can supply this on request.
  • After customs inspections at ICD Bangalore, team containers will be moved to Chikmaglur and the ABC Classic service park. They will be available from Monday 28 November or earlier.
  • If you haven’t already done so, I recommend you make contact with the organisers regarding your accommodation requirements for the rally in Chikmaglur.
  • Rally Guide 1 is available online.
  • Entry forms and Supplementary Regulations are due to be available online from Monday 10 October.

Live Results App

  • As you will all be aware, APRC uses the services of Rallysafe to meet the FIA requirement for electronic tracking of the rally cars at most APRC rallies
  • Rallysafe have developed a mobile app which can be downloaded from app stores online. This is free of charge.

As always, any questions on any of the above, please contact me directly.
