The Raid Australia Committee has just met to discuss the future of Raid 2020, which is currently postponed to August 2022.
The Committee has concluded that there are too many impediments and uncertainties for the Raid to proceed this year.
Such things as State border closures, Australian Visa restrictions and the fact that the Omicron variant if the Covid virus is still spreading rapidly in Australia, were considered.
There was then a discussion as to whether it should be postponed to 2023 or 2024, with the majority of the Committee of the opinion that it should be postponed to August 2024. The main reasons for this are that in 2023 it would clash with the 2CV World Meeting and postponing to 2024 would bring it back into line with the normal 4 year Raid cycle in Australia.
We regret the inconvenience this may cause some entrants and anyone who has entered and does not want to participate in the postponed Raid in 2024 can apply to have their entry fee refunded. The entry fees of everyone else will be preserved in the Raid account for the postponed event.
The postponed Raid is still expected to have the same route and format, but we will advise you nearer to the event if there are any changes.
Those who have entered will be advised by email shortly.
