The 2010 Rally 

The new route drives into Mongolia, and then south into Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. This is the historic Silk Route, and there are day’s off in such fabled old towns as Almaty, and Samarkand.

The categories are the same as the 2007 event – Veterans, with a “models in production prior to 1922” era, a second category for Vintageants, for model-types in production from 1922 to 1942, and certain classics in production prior to 1968. The last event was heavily over-subscribed, so priority would be given to older cars and the Organisers reserved the right to be choosy. The car must be capable of keeping up to the time-schedules (three different schedule for the three Categories). No estate-cars, commercial vehicles, station-wagons are accepted in any Category. Rarity and "would the film-crew picture this" would be a factor in deciding what to bring, apart from ground clearance and ability to run on 70-octane fuel.

The event will again by mildly sporting in accordance with the FIVA Event Code. Every day will have an element of timing. There will be a leader-board for all three Categories, producing a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and General Classification for each of the three Categories.

As the new route runs further south than 2007 event, in order to avoid the full heat of the deserts of the Taklamakan and Persia, it will start in September, as the Iran coast, Turkish mountains and the mountains of northern Greece will be cooler.
