The final three events for the RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship are now confirmed, with a six round 2021 calendar to provide plenty of exciting rally action across the country.
With the first three events already announced, Motorsport Australia can now confirm those events will be joined by a brand new rally in Victoria – the Gippsland Rally – as well as the AGI Sport Adelaide Hills Rally, and a final round at a location to be confirmed, which will also double as the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship finale.
These events join the previously announced Netier National Capital Rally, Make Smoking History Forest Rally and Rally Tasmania to make up the full calendar.
Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport and Commercial Operations Michael Smith said while the lack of events in 2020 had understandably been disappointing, next year was shaping up to be an action packed year.
“The RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship will go to new heights in 2021 and we’re delighted to confirm our calendar for next year,” Smith said.
“As this year’s Championship could not be awarded, we know the hunger and excitement levels for 2021 among competitors will be off the charts.
“We’ve had a lot of interest from some familiar names, as well as some new rally drivers keen to test themselves at the national level.
“We’re also really excited to have a Victorian round back on the calendar, with the new Gippsland Rally to take place in August. This event will be a welcome addition to the calendar, joining our established and popular events around the country.
“On behalf of everyone at Motorsport Australia, I’d like to thank our partners RSEA Safety and Hoosier for their support during 2020 and of course to our event organisers for their tireless work as we prepare for 2021.”
As part of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship campaign, the AGI Sport Adelaide Hills Rally will also act as a qualifying event for the finale in November.
