Such Sad News Today :(

We are all totally devastated to hear the sad news today.

Philip did such a fantastic job organising this wonderful event.. 
He will be greatly missed by us all. :( 

Endurance Rally Association

Philip Young, Founder and Rally Director

The Endurance Rally Association is deeply saddened to announce that Philip Young, Rally Director and founder of the ERA has died following complications arising from a motorcycle accident in Burma. He was 67 years old.

A prolific ambassador of the historic rally movement, Philip was a larger-than-life character who pushed motorsport boundaries, organising marathon and endurance rallies all over the globe. A founder of the Historic Rally Car Register, Philip set a world record for driving from Cape Town to London in ten-and-a-half days, and is best known for one of his greatest achievements – the revival of the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, one of the world’s most epic motoring adventures. His final milestone was gaining permission for 70 rally competitors to be the first to cross the land border from Thailand into Burma.
