We are grateful to our followers on the Performancecars forum who have had such a lively debate on many subjects related to our challenge. One of the most hotly debated topics was which route the crew should follow. We have obviously done some research prior to launching the project, however the local input and many suggestion, made us re-evaluate our initial route and now we have changed it to Highway #1.
For those unfamiliar with the road network of Australia it is the most accessible route round the continent. We will divert ever so slightly to visit some local landmarks: The most Westerly, Easterly and Southern points are not far from Highway #1 – so it was natural for us to mark our challenge at these points. We are not going to the most Northerly point as this a major detour and would involve a long journey twice on the same road.
