New touring car event added to complement WRC Coffs Rally
ORGANISERS of a new touring event to bring car and motorcycle enthusiasts to September's Coates Hire Rally Australia on the Coffs Coast urge intending participants to finalise entries as the field starts to fill.
Open to all vehicles, the non-competitive Southern Cross Touring road event will start from points close to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
It will take between five and seven days to reach Coffs Harbour in time for official start festivities on Thursday, September 11.
Promoters say it will be a highly-enjoyable way to combine some spirited open-road driving during the day with social functions at night, en route to seeing the world's best drivers in action in the FIA World Rally Championship.
The route will set participants daily stages of between 300-600km on some of the country's most scenic and enjoyable driving roads.
It will have its own finale including the presentation of awards.
Potential entrants should complete an expression of interest form at rallyaustralia.com.au/touring-road-event/
Upon receipt, further information including detailed itinerary, maps, supplementary regulations and entry form will be sent.
