2012 Quit Forest Rally to be held over the last weekend in March
- 8th December 2011, 7:50pm
The second round of the six round ARC, the Quit Forest Rally is always a spectator and competitor favourite, based in WA’s No.1 holiday destination, Busselton and the picturesque inland town of Nannup.
The 2011 ARC was one of the most competitive seasons in recent history and the 2012 season promises to be one of the most exciting in the history of the national championship, with the start of all new regulations and the introduction of two new categories, two-wheel drive Group G2 and an SUV class.
“The new two-wheel drive category will introduce a new era of cars and will mean the action in the forest will be even more exciting to watch and spectators will definitely notice a different sound coming out of the stages next year,” Quit Forest Rally Clerk of Course Ross Tapper said.
Aside from the new vehicles in the ARC, the rally will once again see the Quit Forest Rally Moto competitors taking to the stages across the weekend riding motorbikes, quad bikes and for the first time side-by-side buggies.
“The introduction of the Quit Forest Rally Moto in 2010 added a whole new dimension to the rally and it wouldn’t be the same without them. In 2011 we had 17 competitors and we are hoping to almost double that to 30 in 2012,” Tapper said.
The Quit Forest Rally will also be the opening rounds of the Western Australian Rally Championship and the Western Australian Clubman Cup Series.
The Busselton Toyota Super Special Stage will be held again on both Friday and Saturday nights with the main rally stages based through the plantations around Nannup.
“We’re busy making all the preparations to put on another great event and are happy to have the continued support of Healthway – through their no-smoking brand ‘Quit’, Busselton Toyota and Eventscorp Western Australia,” Tapper said.
With more than 200 cars and bikes expected to compete across the weekend the Quit Forest Rally is a motorsport extravaganza you don’t want to miss.
