Rally Round’s safety record is second to none, and we are determined to keep it that way. Nevertheless we are sorry to report that due to the ongoing unrest in Darjeeling we have been obliged to cancel the Second Thunder Dragon Rally that was scheduled to take place in March and April 2018. We apologise to all those who wanted to join us on our return to the magical Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan – approached via West Bengal – and we still hope to revisit the region when it is safe to do so; to that end our man in India, New Dehli-based Rally Doctor John Llewellyn will continue to update us on the political situation. Please note that this decision does not affect our plans for the Maharajah Marathon, a luxurious tour of princely Rajasthan in February 2019; for more details of that event please contact the Rally Office.
