Oz start for marathon
A plan is being hatched to run the classic London to Sydney marathon in 2014 — but in the reverse direction.
The idea of Mark Solloway of Historic Rallysport, this will be the first such event since 2004 and the first from Australia to the UK. It will be the sixth time it has been held, and the 32-day event will be a special stage rally for cars up to 1975.
“We hope to replicate the 2004 event, but running the other way,” said Solloway, who has enlisted a group of experienced organisers to pull the complex rally together.
