Sunday 11th March 2012 Start and finish at Chalong Pier.
Following on from last years’ very successful GOMS Rally and car treasure hunt, the organizers have this year invited a number of Phuket’s foremost business, social and community organisations to enjoy a great family day out and raise funds for their organizations ongoing projects. Grumpy Old Mens Club (GOMS) are joined by British Business Association Phuket (BBAP), International Business Association Phuket (IBAP), The Lions Club of Patong Beach, Australian Chamber of Commerce Thailand (AustCham) and The Tourist Police Volunteers. Other supporting organisations are welcome.
The 145 kilometre route is designed to take entrants to some of the more remote areas of Phuket Island but all on tarmac roads. It is not a race but a social event that will test the navigational, timekeeping and driving skills of the crews.
To ensure entrants stay strictly on the route, photographic evidence of places or buildings passed is required by the officials, so a camera or mobile phone with a camera is a must.
Entries will be restricted to a maximum of fifty vehicles so it’s first come, first served and it’s important to get your entry in early. This year we are delighted to welcome back sponsors Kan Eang @ Pier, VSET and DaVinci Restaurants together with new sponsors The Flying Hanuman and AutoExpress.com who is taking the lead as Title Sponsor.
We welcomes entries from members of all participating organizations and their families. Application forms which can be downloaded online from www.phuketinvitational.com should be handed in at Chalong Pier Beer Garden, together with the fee of 2,000 Baht. Forms are also available at Chalong Pier Beer Garden.
