The organiser is the F.I.C.C. member “Beijing Golden Sunflower Outdoors Activity Club.”
This promises to be an exceptional rally judging by the slide presentation at the General Assembly that showed the layout of the campsite, programme, accommodation possibilities and excursions. Beijing’s international airport is an hour’s drive from the rally site (a national park). The campsite is still being constructed but will be ready by the end of the year.

One can rent a car in China, but you must let the organisers know well in advance as you will need to apply for a Chinese driver’s licence. If you intend taking your own vehicle, in addition to a Chinese driver’s licence, you will have to apply for a Chinese number plate. The organisers will be happy to help with all of these formalities.
Wifi and internet connections on the rally site will be free of charge.

It is possible to travel with your own caravan from Europe to China but such a long journey requires very careful planning. The overall distance there and back is around 30,000 kms and it can be difficult driving through some countries en route as roads are often in a poor state of repair. However, in China itself the roads and motorways are very good.

This 80th international F.I.C.C. Rally, the first to be organised in China, is a wonderful opportunity to get to know more about the country and its people, not forgetting its ancient culture and well preserved sights and monuments going back many thousands of years.
