If you’re an overseas driver considering entering and think it might be too far or too difficult, just ask us for references from competitors who have been here in the past and check with us as we can provide details for shipping and handling, accommodation – cars to lease or buy, and we can even find like minded people for service crews etc – just ask just how easy it could be, – we’d love to see you join our adventure down-under.
