Q&A: Ken Rees (Subaru) - EXCLUSIVE.

Yeah, that is why it is 365 days a year, it is only 16 events, but we are continually working. We are probably working six or seven events into next year already. Yesterday we booked the flights for the Acropolis Rally of Greece - which is twelve events away at the moment! That is how far ahead we as logistics work and we will be sat in meetings now looking at car builds for next year and rotating staff for next season.

Final question, how much of the team's budget goes on travel/logistics roughly?

Hard to actually pin down - you would put, for the travel side of it, around US $1.5 million, which is just under a £1 million in actual travel. Again you can look at freight being another £1 million, but that will depend on the amount of air freight you have - air freight is very expensive. You will fly two or three cars to Australia and New Zealand and flying a car can be £10,000 each way, but those are all approximate figures.
