Originals sign up for 2020
26/06/19 - A significant number of the 21 Originals have already committed to entering the 2020 edition of the race. Most, armed with last years experience, know they can go much deeper into the race. We have no doubt some will push for a finish. Time will tell. Numerous new competitors will also give finishing a good nudge. They have the advantage of being able to follow the Originals around the all important first lap. That is of course if the Originals let them.
