Taffy Dakar 2019

Post by Jak* » Sat Dec 22, 2018 7:26 pm

Hi, does anyone know anything about the 2019 Taffy. Is it on? I can’t find the website. Someone told me that they had got to change the name as the organisers of the Dakar had objected. Obviously a number of competitors must have got confused last year and found themselves in a field with a bunch of pissed up Welsh people rather than being on a highly competitive rally in South America. To be honest if their planning and navigation was that bad they weren’t going to win anyway.
Cheers Jak

Normally I think the tickets go on sales on the 1st jan. then you just have to fight through their IT systems to make a booking

Thanks, now I can go through my normal New Year’s routine of trying to buy the tickets after the whisky has run out.
If you haven’t been have a look at their website. It is a brilliant crack, certainly one of the highlights of the year.
Cheers Jak

Forget the " Oh no its one minute past midnight on 1/1/ (fill in year) and there are only 3 tickets left at the Taffy D" you can buy them now as the site is open NOW . Choose your options well as there are different classifications now Bike n tent, bike trailer car tent, van Bike, day ticket, bike no tent, and so on, all priced differently. Bearing in mind the rather crowded nature of the camp site, in 2018, , something needed to be done to avoid the overcrowding. Hopefully this will help. Go for it guys.

Anyone else here booked, money taken but no tickets emailed across.. the taffy website is normally bad for booking but think it’s got worse

I'm sure normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, no ones going to get ripped off , it will be sorted sooner or later. Blah blah volunteers and all that lot. Oh Merry Christmas everybody.

Yup, same here.
Just dropped an email to [email protected] with all the details of my booking PayPal ref and email address (different from my booking email address) and will await them to sort it out.
