In a months time myself and my co-driver are taking a plucky little Daihatsu Feroza on a rally across Europe/Africa. Its about 7,000 miles across 16 countries, in 5 weeks.
Check out our website if you want to follow progress:
Up to this point your forums etc have been a huge assistance to our preparations, however now we need to ask for your help.
We have a big problem, our car is a UK import (From the Netherlands - had to be a LHD model because of the rally rules), and it has to be UK registered with the DVLA. The DVLA have rejected our registration on the basis that the documentation we provided has no Date of Manaufacture/Date of Registration for the vehicle.
Do you guys know where we could get this information ASAP? We have the chassis number etc which could be used to search for this information.
The DVLA suggested we contact the Owners club and the Manufacturer (Or Importer - IM Group in this case) to get the information.
IM Group are closed for the weekend so we thought we'd come to you guys first.
Without the UK Reg the rally is a no-go... To say we need the details ASAP would be an understatement!
We are at the mercy of the Daihatsu gods
