Adelaide Hills Rally set to light up CAMS Australian Rally Championship
The brand new Adelaide Hills Rally guarantees to be a true test of man and machine, as the penultimate round of the CAMS Australian Rally Championship.
After the long time directing team stood down from the South Australian round in 2017, a new team has stood up to continue the ARC tradition this season.
The date is similar (September 22-23), albeit a week later than the previously, but the rally base and format is completely different.
The event has a new name, a new base, and an exciting super special stage in prospect.
Rally headquarters and service park will be located at the Mount Barker Showgrounds, 35 kilometres south-east of Adelaide, with stages located, as the name suggests, in the Adelaide hills.
Saturday’s stages will take competitors from Callington to Kersbrook, whilst Sunday’s tests will trek further south in comparison, all in amongst the beautiful Adelaide hills.
However, arguably the most anticipated aspect, may be the super special stage to be hosted at the newly constructed Bend Motorsport Park.
The multi-million dollar venue, most notably the newest Supercars venue, will also be home to the CAMS Australian Rally Championship.
The Friday night super special stage (along with the service park), will have the cars on show, with food trucks, and a family friendly atmosphere.
Located at Tailem Bend, the new facility is state of the art, and will incorporate everything from circuit racing to off-road 4WD tracks.
Rallying will likely be another fantastic addition, in conjunction with the Adelaide Hills Rally.
More details on the brand new event will be available closer to the date.
