Coffs Rally regulations released
REGULATIONS for the Daikin-Allied Air Conditioning Coffs Coast Rally have been released on the ARC Series website.
The two-day rally on November 15-16 will be based out of Coffs Harbour and use traditional stages such as Sherwood Road on four occasions and new roads in Newry State Forest, not used for over nine years in rallies.
The event will use one service park at BCU International Stadium with headquarters at Novotel Pacific Bay Resort.
Event manager Martin Quinn said the rally is an ideal stepping-stone to ARC events for New South Wales Championship contenders.
“It will allow State competitors to run on notes on day one as part of the State championship,” he said.
“They can also pay the extra fee and compete on day two should they desire.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to get in and have a go on an even footing against the ARC guys for a whole lot less money.
“The State championship has been coming up here for a while now and these competitors will have a lot more experience in our northern forests and down our most famous Sherwood Road than the ARC guys.
“Organisers had several reasons for taking on the ARC in NSW and this was one of them, to provide solid pathways for competitors to get a taste of ARC competition and conditions and be treated with equal billing”
Clerk of course Tony Creer said State competitors will be able to participate in the ceremonial start in Coffs City Centre on the Friday evening and also take part in the media day on Friday morning.
“This is a real win-win for motor sport,” he said.
