Rally in your road car at Adelaide Hills Rally

Got none of the gear but like the idea of gravel rallying? Then the Shannons Adventure Tour Experience at the BOTT Adelaide Hills Rally is for you!

Ultimate Motorsport Events have introduced the Shannons Adventure Tour to give enthusiasts a chance to experience gravel rallying firsthand at a CAMS Australian Rally Championship (ARC) round, all in the comfort of their road registered car.

The tour will cover more than 360 kilometres including six special stages on the Saturday, with participants following the competition field and getting a taste of some of Australia’s best rally roads.

On Sunday it will be the Shannons Adventure Tour that leads the way, completing six special stages and approximately 290 kilometres ahead of the ARC and South Australian Rally Championship (SARC) fields before stopping at award winning winery, Pike & Joyce, on the Mawson Road Stage for a gourmet lunch and a taste of their superb wines.

Here participants will see Australia’s best rally teams in action as the ARC and SARC field pass by at full throttle.

As a bonus, Shannons Adventure Tour participants will have entry to Friday night’s Super Special Stage at The Bend Motorsport Park and will have the chance to display their vehicles. Time permitting, the entrants and their vehicles will do a parade lap of the 1.7 kilometre super special stage.

Entries to the Shannons Adventure Tour are open until 8pm Wednesday 12 September. Enter here.

Shannons Adventure Tour entrants must hold a civil drivers licence and cars must be road registered and in neat and tidy condition. The tour will run in accordance with CAMS Touring Assembly Regulations.
