Only 17 months to the 2016 Classic Outback Trial in Alice Springs!

We had our fourth organisers meeting and the first for 2015 in this past week. And, even though we’ve been quiet on the website, preparation for COT 2016 is well and truly under way. We had a great meeting and covered a number of important items. We’ll be releasing some exciting news about the 2016 event in the coming weeks.

The date for the 2016 event is confirmed – it will start on Saturday 18 June 2016 with the prologue and conclude with the last day of competition and presentation on Friday 24 June 2016. That makes the event less than 17 months away! We’ll start the countdown pics soon…

We welcomed Steuart Snooks to the organising team at this meeting. Steuart has become the fourth member of the team and will bring both organising and current competitor experience to the table. Steuart competed in COT 2014 as co-driver for Mike Batten where they came an excellent 5th outright. Steuart joins the team as the Functions Coordinator – and will be sitting with Steve on the “youngsters” side of the table.

We have 8 nominations for COT 2016 and a number of very positive enquiries from new potential competitors.

The website and our social media pages are getting a clean-up in preparation for 2016… watch the website especially as we share news and updates about the 2016 event.

More soon!
