Australian and New Zealand rally drivers from all levels will have the rare opportunity to go up against the world’s best rally drivers in November this year on New South Wales’ Coffs Coast.
The event will play host to the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship season finale, which also coincides with the CAMS Australian Rally Championship, a National competition, the East Coast Classic Rally Series, and the New South Wales Rally Championship.
Both homologated and non-homologated cars that meet CAMS, FIA or MotorSport New Zealand technical regulations will be able to enter, with Clerk of Course Wayne Kenny confident of the event’s attraction for both amateur and professional drivers.
“We’ve made it as easy as possible for competitors from many levels to do this with a variety of itineraries, eligibility rules and entry fees,” Kenny said.
“Competing at a world championship alongside the sport’s best drivers is surely something on the bucket list of every rally crew.
“The variety of competitions within Rally Australia makes it possible to be part of the biggest and most professionally-run rally event in this part of the world.”
“The Rally Australia organisers encourage as many teams as possible to enter in 2018,”
The events available across three days are headlined by the FIA World Rally Championship, which covers a total of 215 competitive kilometres across 26 stages and is sure to attract some of the biggest names in the sport.
The CAMS Australian Rally Championship (ARC) and the National rally will also be staged across three days with the ARC’s 22 stages and National rally’s 20 stages to cover more than 300km.
The East Coast Classic Rally Series and State Rally Championships rounds out the four available events, covering a total of 120km across eight stages on the Saturday alone.
Entries are open for the four-day event, which will take place on 15 – 18 November in Coffs Coast as part of the Kennards Hire Rally Australia.
