The HERO Classic Reliability Trial of Iceland is intended to be as much a holiday as a competitive event. Organised under a permit issued by the Icelandic Motorsport Association and with the support and co-operation of the Icelandic Tourist Board and various official bodies, the format will be regularity road sections interspersed with tests at locations along the route, and will include activities designed to allow participants a chance to experience everything Iceland can offer. Driving days will vary in length and will be dictated by the location of hotels along the route capable of accommodating the event. The rally will take place over six days during the period from Friday 5th September 2008 (your arrival at Keflavik) to Monday 15th September (the day of departure).

Competing vehicles will be containerised at Immingham and shipped by one of the specialist Icelandic shipping companies. Shipping agents and customs officials are supportive of the event and are keen to ensure that the process of unloading and customs clearance is dealt with as quickly and smoothly as possible. Members of the Antique Automobile Club of Iceland have offered to assist with unloading the cars. Special arrangements will be made to allow continental crews to have their vehicles shipped from a port in Northern Europe.
