More live stages at Coffs Coast Rally on 7plus

The season defining final round of the RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship will now include more live broadcast stages on 7plus, with Saturday afternoon coverage of the Super Special Stage at Raleigh Raceway.

Doubling as the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship finale, the Supercheap Auto Coffs Coast Rally will see live coverage of the traditional EROAD Power Stage on 7plus as well as the two runs of Raleigh Raceway live streamed from approximately 4pm AEDT on Saturday 26 November.

The stream, available to view live and free for those in Australia, will feature a host of competitors including WRC star Hayden Paddon in the APRC as well as ARC leaders Harry Bates, Lewis Bates, Richie Dalton and hometown hero, Nathan Quinn, among others.

Hosted by Jess Dane and Dean Herridge, the stage will feature side-by-side action, with competitors to battle the clock and each other with two cars on stage for each run.

On Sunday, the EROAD Power Stage also has the potential to decide the outright ARC champion, and coverage of Sunday’s on stage action will begin from 4.15pm AEDT.

Motorsport Australia Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith said the increased coverage would allow even more fans to enjoy live rally action on their screens.

“This additional broadcast of the Raleigh Super Special Stage is a bonus for those eager to see more of the RSEA Safety Motorsport Australia Rally Championship, as well as the EROAD Power Stage as always on Sunday,” Smith said.

“We’re excited about the local interest in this event, with lots of spectators registering for their free tickets to attend, while for those who can’t make it to Coffs, the Saturday and Sunday broadcast will allow people to enjoy even more of Australia’s best drivers from their TV or smart devices live and free on 7plus.”

The Raleigh Super Special Stage will be broadcast on 26 November from 4pm AEDT on 7plus.
