The sixteenth anniversary event will be known as Lightforce Rally SA, to be held on 9, 10, 11 September 2016. It will be the fourth round of the Kumho Tyre Australian Rally Championship, and the third round of the MRF Tyres South Australian Rally Championship.
Rally SA will work with Lightforce to promote the South Australian company’s innovative range of lighting systems, including LED light bars, spotlights and more both locally and across Australia through the Kumho Tyre Australian Rally Championship.
Lightforce products will get an innovative showcase during Rally SA’s unique Mount Crawford Forest night stages. These stages are a unique feature of the South Australian round, run in full darkness. They provide a challenge for competitors, a spectacle for the public, and a great opportunity to see the capability of Lightforce’s South Australian products.
"Lightforce is proud to be naming rights sponsor of the 2016 Lightforce Rally SA. We have called South Australia home since our inception and pride ourselves in supporting local events and initiatives. With the launch of our LED light bar range, we feel that we now have a selection of products which correlate perfectly with the needs of this market.” said Ben Meddows, Lightforce Marketing Specialist.
Rally Director, Ivar Stanelis, said he was delighted that Lightforce had agreed to team up with the Rally SA. “This is a truly significant partnership. We’re thrilled to have a quality South Australian brand like Lightforce involved. Rallying focusses on action and durability, which underlines the Lightforce brand’s unparalleled strength and toughness. This association is great for the sport generally and great for us locally, and I am confident it will be beneficial to both organisations."
Lightforce Rally SA is the fourth round of the 2016 Kumho Tyre Australian Rally Championship and the third round of the 2016 MRF Tyres South Australian Rally Championship, run on the roads in and around Mount Crawford Forest and the Barossa Valley this 9, 10, 11 September 2016.
