Tuthill Porsche Invites Safari Classic Rally Entries
Tuthill Porsche is inviting entries for the 2017 East African Safari Classic Rally, which takes place on alternate years. Although the rally itself does start until the end of next year, entry is now open and potential participants should act now to guarantee their place, says Tuthill Porsche, which has a mass of experience at the African event.
Two-time Safari winner, Tuthill Porsche, urges anyone interested in taking part in this exceptional competition, that has been widened to include eligible FIA-homologated rally cars up to 1985, to get in touch in order to secure one of just sixty available places. Tuthill Porsche’s Richard Tuthill, said: “The last Safari was fully booked a year before the start and we expect the next one to be equally popular. Those who wish to experience the wonders of African rallying should contact us to discuss their entries as early as possible.”
In 2015 the East African Safari Classic Rally comprised eight days of driving with a rest day in the middle, and saw competitors cover 4,000 kilometres. Entry fees for 2017 have been reduced, and there are rumours of a new route to reinvent the challenge, both factors are expected to encourage new entrants. The Porsche cars Tuthill will ready for the event will be shipped from UK shores in August next year, allowing just twelve months preparation time before the start of proceedings in Mombasa – not much in the world of classic Porsche preparation.
Richard Tuthill said: “Safari is considered one of the world’s toughest rallies, but it is also a social event. Combined with a huge sense of adventure, this is what makes it so wonderful and I would go as far to say there is no event like it! Our focus is providing clients of all levels the opportunity to enjoy this potentially life-changing experience in the best possible way, with full support and surrounded by enthusiastic, committed people who share the same passion. The fact that one can be in the same team as World Rally Champions is a major benefit, as they bring to the team a vast wealth of experience at the highest level.”
The 2017 East African Safari Classic Rally takes place from November 23rd to December 1st, 2017. Those interested should contact Tuthill Porsche on +44 1295 750514 to discuss availability or visit www.tuthillporsche.com for more information.
