World Rally Championships to rev up Coffs City Centre
COFFS city centre will be on display across the globe when the World Rally Championships (WRC) come to town next month.
The City Centre Masterplan Committee is pleased to announce the city centre is the venue for the WRC's Coates Hire Rally Show and ceremonial start on September 10.
Rally banners will soon be flying and the sails will be lit orange to start the "City Dress Up" to help promote this world-class event that's coming back to the Coffs Coast for three exciting days on September 10-13.
Last year's event in the city centre was popular for locals and visiting rally enthusiasts.
Rally drivers will arrive about 4pm and will be introduced on stage to the crowd before signing autographs and meeting fans.
A giant screen and stage will be set up in front of Coffs Central and this will remain in place throughout the event, streaming videos, live footage, results and other information.
The city centre will also be the venue for the podium finish from 3pm on Sunday, September 13.
