Dacre "The Longest Day" Rally

Date:July 9,10,11 2021



The BASIC'S
The Dacre Rally is a GPS guided event that runs up to 425km (264 miles) in a 24 hour time frame. Multiple classes to choose from. Gold, Silver, Bronze & Iron. Each class representing difficulty based on mileage and terrain covered. Neither speed or time is factored into the results of this challenge. Racing is not what this event is about. Its simply completing the prescribed route in its entirety. Complete this event and be one of the few esteemed riders to hold that accomplishment. Do yo have what it takes to survive the "Longest Day"


The event is a "Challenge Concept Event". Open to off road registered ATV & Side-by-Side Machines. Only 4x4 machines permited. (See class and machine qualifications below) This is not a day tour, it's all about personal and machine preparation, reliability, self sufficiency, team work, planning, navigation and camaraderie. It is considered a level 5 out of 5 on our difficulty scale.  Be aware that you will be relying on your support team and yourself to take care of any problems that may arise. Rally Connex will only be providing assistance in extreme emergency situations. You are responsible for providing your own logistics if you leave the event for any reason.  The entire route will be “swept” by our crew, but they may be hours behind you.

The start and finish of the event, will take place at the same location. Team support vehicles can have a home base to dispatch out of if required. For full details please continue reading below.
