The 2018 Trans American Challenge Gets Underway

Today I am in Charleston, South Carolina for the start of the 2018 Trans America Challenge.  The Trans American Challenge is being put on by the Endurance Rally Association, which is based in England.  The Endurance Rally Association puts multi-day rallies all over the world.  This event is of particular interest to me as helped to find the route, did the recce for the route and have been assisting with putting on this event over the last two years.  During this event I am working with Mark Appleton, as the Deputy Clerk of the Course.

The main activities today are the signing on of the rally competitors and the scrutineering of the cars. There are some very nice rally cars entered in this rally.

Anthony & Sonja Verloop Entered A 1973 MGB GT V8

There are a number of late 1930s American cars that have been rebuilt as very serious rally cars.  The 1938 Ford coupe shown below is an example.

John & Nicole Whitelock Entered a 1938 Ford 5-Window Coupe

The some older British cars are entered such as the Alvis shown below.

Alex Vassbotten/Erik Osland ‘s 1933 Alvis Firefly

Tomorrow the rally gets underway as the cars travel to Charlotte, North Carolina from Charleston, South Carolina.
