There’s lots of interest in the 2016 Classic Outback Trial and we’ve received six nominations since our last update. We want to welcome…
Shane Attwell, WA
Shane is new to the COT, but his car isn’t. Shane ran the spectacular blue Falcon GT in the 2014 Sydney to London. The car competed in the Red Centre to Gold Coast and the 2009 COT in the hands of Ian Swan.
A big welcome to Shane, Pat, Greg, David, John and Peter – and their teams. Thank you all for your nominations.
We also have strong interest from competition-hungry Safari crews with Cross Country Cars seeking invitations to enter – we currently have five requests on the table.
We’re also talking to a number of UK based teams – for both classic and regularity – and expect to make some announcements soon. Of course, overseas teams need to plan well ahead, given the logistics of getting cars to Australia.
We’re miles ahead of the number of nominations we had at this stage for the last COT – things are looking good for a full field.
So, if you’re thinking of running in COT 2016 and have not nominated yet, submit a nomination form soon to ensure a guaranteed entry.
