Entries open for 2024 Forest Rally

Entries for the second round of the Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC) are now open.

Taking place in and around the forests of Busselton and Nannup, the 2024 Forest Rally will be held in May, with more than 180 competitive kilometres making up the event.

The popular West Australian-based event will once again run as a sprint format, which will see championship points divided into two Heats.

Celebrating 50 years since an ARC round was first run in Western Australia, the WA Car Club boasts a rich history of hosting the nation’s premier rally competition in that time and has seen many changes take place over the years.

A must-see Friday night Rally Show and Ceremonial Start will take place on the Busselton foreshore alongside the famous Busselton Jetty this year, a chance for fans to see the cars and meet the teams.

The rally action then gets underway on Saturday morning with six stages in the Nannup area forming part of Heat 1 – totalling to 104 competitive kilometres.

On Sunday, a further five stages over 76 competitive kilometres await fans, including the returning Lewana Stage, which hasn’t been used for 15 years, and the Galvaniize Insurance Power Stage.

In addition to the ARC, the Motorsport Australia WA Rally Championship will also run alongside the national competitors, with state entries to contest the full distance, while the WA Clubman Series will be made up of just Saturday’s stages.

Entries can be completed via the Motorsport Australia Member Portal, with interested competitors having 11:59pm AWST on Friday 3 May to lock their place in.

The 2024 Forest Rally serves as the second round of the 2024 season and takes place in Western Australia on 16-18 May.
