2013 Safari Classic Rally Dates Announced

The organisers of the East African Safari Classic Rally have announced the dates of the 2013 event: 21st to the 29th of November.

I blogged the 2011 event in full with Race4Change.org and Tuthill Porsche. We had a ball, with R4C driver Björn Waldegård taking his sixth Safari victory and the first for a Porsche on the world’s toughest rally. You can read about our adventures using the East African Safari Classic tag.

Further down the field, Race4Change supremo Steve Funk finished 6th in a Tuthill Porsche, and Travis Pastrana (above) came and raced with us, keeping the team and the crowds entertained with his uptempo personality and superbly attack-minded approach. “The best three days of my life” was how Travis described his experience.

No sooner had the 2013 dates been made public than I had a number of emails from people interested in competing. Did I know anyone looking for a driver, or a navigator? All enquiries should go to Richard Tuthill – he may know people.

Here’s a nice bit of Race4Change video to explain what R4C is all about. Keep up with all the rally news on the Ferdinand Porsche Magazine & Daily News Blog.
