PICK YOUR WHEELS!
HQ has decreed that there shall be no restriction on the size of the machine that will turn the rubber of your chariot. This is the chance to finally bury the stories of those “ahem, city enthusiasts’ who are known to use ‘Spray-on Dirt’ to boost their “street cred”. Bring your 1.4L Citi Golf, your V8 Range Rover or your 125cc Vuka Scooter and let's get this adventure started!
THE AGE OF YOUR CAR CAN DETERMINE THE SIZE OF YOUR ADVENTURE!
Your wheels will need to get you from A to B without too much of a struggle. You don't want to be at the back of the pack, breaking down, stressing balls or struggling to get to the ridiculously awesome Checkpoints on time. You'll miss out on the vibe ...and no one wants to miss out on the vibe! So get your shit together, find a vehicle with an engine and 4 (or 2) wheels that work without causing too any issues, paint it a bright color, add some flair, load your 4 buddies in, and let's get going!
THIS IS AFRICA - T.I.A: Africa can at the best of times be treacherous and most of the time a dangerous old place. Vehicles in Africa are generally modified to withstand the most determined of tsotsies and hijackers, however for the Put Foot Rally your wagons may also be required to withstand hungry lions, inquisitive elephants, angry rhino and above all should be able to outrun most Cheetahs. Some extra spotlights, and ride height are worth considering.
THE ROADS: We cannot guarantee that you will have a road to drive on the whole way around. We also take no responsibility for any piece of your vehicle that decides to detach or reshape... or detach... itself as a consequence of your navigation or driving skills.
While most countries do have superb tarred roads, this is Africa and there will be roads in some countries that have nasty potholes, randomly sized speed bumps and in Malawi... you’ll be surprised to learn that the main roads are hugely popular place of nocturnal socialising, and should only be driven in daylight.
