     THE TRANS EUROPE RALLY
                        16TH MAY – 4TH JUNE 2009


                                    Foreword

Nick Brittan, founder of Trans World Events and the man behind such events as
London-Sydney Marathon, London-Mexico Rally, Panama-Alaska and many more,
died suddenly in November 2006.

Ron Jackson and Mike Summerfield, TWE’s Rally Manager and Route Co-ordinator
are proud to be carrying on where Nick sadly stopped. After much restructuring a
new company has been formed – Trans World Motorsports – and in conjunction with
TWE competitor, Jiri Kotek whose brainchild it is, we are pleased to present The
Trans Europe Rally.

We are putting together an event with a glamorous start in Monte Carlo and more
special stage mileage than usual for a marathon rally using many of the past and
present classic world rally championship stages.

Not forgetting our Challenge competitors we plan to spice up their competition with
both regularity and consistency tests with time to visit places of interest and see
some of the magnificent scenery along the route.

Service crew are welcome and their entry fee has been split into the Service Pack
and the optional accommodation making it much cheaper for a competitor to have a
service crew particularly if you make them sleep in the service barge!!

Competition in these events is now quite intense but no-one must forget the primary
objects – to get to the finish, to see new places, meet new people, to have fun on the
way and if you manage to beat the man in front, well that’s a bonus!

Mike and I are putting a lot of work into this event; we need your support, why don’t
you take the plunge and send your entry in today?
