I doubt my car will be ready in time for the rally. But, fellows, do take part. It's a lot of fun for everyone. Sam and I took part last year and had a great time.

Chaps, the navigator will be provided by the NAB. You'll be paired with your navigator a day before the rally.
We had just two Team-BHP members taking part last year. Hope there are more this year.

Guys, I'll be there. It is fun. All you need to do is show up with your car and a little money. It is a beautiful and heart-warming experience.

Remember you will need to be there on Saturday and Sunday, for a few hours. I hope to see you there
