There is such a positive response for the Grand Opportunity package and what it can offer for £1,000 that it gave me the confidence to GO for it! Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far. There are a lot of places to fill, it is great that people are seeing the value in the returns and are grabbing the opportunity to be involved.

The realistic deadline to be in the growing network and have the branding in place on the rally car and website by Rally d’Italia Sardegna, is Thursday 17th May, less than 1 week away.
