RALLY cars will once again bring the heart of Coffs Harbour to a standstill in three days time.

The Snake Racing Coffs Coast Rally rolls into town with a rally show in the city centre before the nation's best drivers are let loose on Australia's best rallying roads.

The ceremonial start to the weekend's action in Harbour Dr on Friday at 3pm is an important part in engaging the local community, Rally Australia operations manager Scott Bedford said.

"Dads love checking out the rally cars, the kids love the balloons and face painting as well as the cars, and mums love spending time out with the family," Scott said.

"The ceremonial start is a real family affair and a great afternoon of entertainment.

"I encourage everyone to come down and see the Bosch ARC spectacle and join in on the fun on Friday evening."

All 70 cars competing in the Bosch Australian Rally Championships will be on display.

Also taking part in the show will be the vehicles contesting the Australian Side x Side Rally Challenge, East Coast Bullbars SUV Rally Challenge, Rallyschool.com.au, Australian Junior Challenge and the NSW Rally Championship.

The cars will officially make their way over the start line at 4.30pm before heading into the forest on Saturday morning for the first stage of the race at 8.30am.
