Emmanuel contacted me with some information on his and Christophe Tourbet's 1961 VW1200 that that have been preparing for historic rallying.

Although they contacted the FIA for homologation information, they received the unfortunate news that the 1961 homologation documents were lost in some flooding, although the FIA is hoping to be able to restore them from other records. They have had permission from the ACM (Automobile Club de Monaco) to enter the historic Monte Carlo, which they hope to do in 2013.

They have provided a link to their blog.

They came 26th our of 39 finishers in their first rally in November 2012, coming 1st in their class (period E / under 1300cc) which was a great result bearing in mind that they are still running in factory-spec with drum brakes and a 1285cc engine
