The Battle of the Cult Cars


Because the 2014 edition is a special one (10 years of Touareg Trail), we –just this once- broaden the “2CV only” group and welcome all classic, 2-wheel powered, classic cult cars who are up for a real adventure. The conditions are that all vehicles must be minimum 25 years old and only 2 wheels can be powered. (4x4 vehicles are only allowed as assistance cars; and cannot participate in the competition). No need to buy something expensive; some suitable cars can be found from 500€ onwards.

To give a list with all accepted or suitable vehicles is an endless job, but here are some cars that are definitely up for the challenge:

• (of course) all Citroën A-types: 2CV, Mehari, Ami 6/8, Burton, etc.
• Renault R4 (& R5)
• Peugeot 504
• Citroën BX (Sport)
• Volkswagen Beetle
• ….
• Rolls Roys Phantom :-)

 

Technical modifications:


One month prior to the start, all registered vehicles will be subject to a technical scruteneering (control) which takes place during our annual training- & teambuilding weekend in Belgium. In order to minimize the repairs during the rally and in order to be able to focus more on driving than on fixing, you’d better do the following adaptations:

 

  • Re-enforced chassis
  • Sheet metal engine protector
  • Metal petrol tank protector
  • Minimum petrol capacity of 60 liters (jerry cans allowed)
  • Water storage capacity of minimum 10 liters
  • Extra set high beam headlights
  • Basic tool kit and small spare parts
  • Fire extinguisher, triangle and basic first aid kit
  • 2 spare tyres & wheels
  • 4 spare inner tubes
  • Solid bumper set
  • Electronic ignition
  • Revised brake system
  • Several anchor points for towing
