ARC Calendar Update

Motorsport Australia has announced a number of tweaks to the 2022 RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship calendar.

The changes will see the Netier National Capital Rally moved back one week, the Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland moved forward one week and the Adelaide Hills Rally held one weekend later.

The location of the final round remains to be confirmed, however the rally will take place in New South Wales, with an international flavour expected.

These small modifications have been made in conjunction with event organisers to maximise attendance and secure key venues as part of each rally.

Next year’s Championship promises to be one of the biggest in recent years, with plenty of interest from a large pool of competitors, as well as a number of new machines expected to debut at the top end of the field.

RSEA Safety recently confirmed its support of the Championship, extending its naming rights partnership for 2022.

Hoosier remains the control tyre for the Championship in 2022, giving competitors plenty of certainty ahead of the extended seven round calendar.

Meanwhile, a huge pre-season test and 2022 launch event will be held in Canberra on 8 March. More details on this event will be released in the lead up to the 2022 season.

The final round of 2021 will still run on 11 December, with this year’s champions to be crowned at the Kosciuszko Automotive Monaro Sprint Rally.
