Hi Mike

I will be a competitor in this year’s Icelandic Hill Rally and I understand from Ian Sykes and Tryggvi M Thordarson that they have arranged a special rate for competitors.

 The quotation number is 747731 under customer 1135774 and was arranged by Garðar Ingi Gunnarsson.             The fee is 299.111 ISK

The temporary importation of vehicles to be used in and at any Icelandic Motorsport event that is sanctioned under AKIS is covered by special Customs arrangements as defined in document FJR05060131/100-10    Dated 5 July 2005.

I would like to arrange return shipping for    Describe vehicle, and some ID number eg Licence plate is best or VIN or chassis number

On the following shipping dates; IMMINGHAM to REYKJAVIK                                     You choose and delete the others

Monday 25th July for arrival Monday 1st August (This is workable but is tight)


Monday 18th July arrival Monday 25th July. (This gives a week or the vehicle here when you fly in)


Monday 8th August collection 17/18th August

Monday 15th August collection 24/25th August.   NOTE in both return cases, UK customs have usually cleared vehicles by Tuesday. When I use this service I arrange to collect Thursday so that leaves Friday as a fall back – never needed the fall back.


We can arrange to collect the vehicles from Reykjavik dock and store at my house, so you may need to use my address as your Iceland contact

We can also arrange to return the vehicle to the dock in Reykjavik so it catches that week’s sailing.

 If you wish either of these services, we need a covering email to give permission to do so, signed by the name of the car’s owner.

You do NOT need any carnet type document or tax insurance, that is covered by the special Customs arrangement as above.

You are required to list what you bring. Do Not Bring tobacco or alcohol in the rally vehicle.

In the vehicle I have packed;

X spare wheels and tyres

X boxes of spare parts to keep car running whilst in the event (mention anything very expensive but also state it will only operate with this car)

X boxes/bags or rally clothing and helmets

X box/case of garage service tools

1 Car trolley jack and stands.

You get the idea, it is not every single item, it is the general scope.
