Matt Swan and Paul Franklin have been assigned car number 1 for COT 2014, in recognition of their win the previous Classic Outback Trial in 2012.
Matt and Paul had a great run in 2012, with consistent good results and a trouble free run in their 1987 Holden Commodore. They clinched the win with a stirring drive on the last day around Renmark.
As the past winners, Matt and Paul will also feature on the 2014 event poster and on the cover of our publications. The pic of Matt and Paul used in the poster was taken by a member of their service crew, Cale Pearce.
The poster is now available for download from the Classic Outback Trial posters page.
The list of entries, which was released yesterday, showed Swan/Franklin as car 1. Then, car numbers were assigned alphabetically.
Start order for both the Prologue and Day 1 will be determined and announced as outlined in the events Supplementary Regulations and the Guide to the Event.
