Adelaide Rallysprint builds more tarmac action in SA
Organisers of the Shannons Adelaide Rally have announced a single day event for October 6.
Held on various sections of road used in the greater Shannons Adelaide Rally, the Adelaide Rallysprint is one of two new Tarmac Events planned for South Australia to service the burgeoning Tarmac Rally scene and support the premium Adelaide Rally event.
The second event is yet to be announced.
“We are creating some critical mass in the Tarmac Rally scene in South Australia. What have heard from competitors is that they want to invest more in the sport in terms of upgrading vehicles, buying new vehicles and generally becoming more serious about the sport,” spokesman Tim Possingham said.
“In order to do this, we need more events for these people to take part in and that’s exactly what we have created.”
Run mostly under the same set of regulations as the prestigious Shannons Adelaide Rally event, the single day Adelaide Rallysprint has categories for Tour, Spirit Tour and Challenge as well as outright Competition.
“We have already seen a flurry of entries, mostly as the Earlybird pricing cuts off at the end of this month. Its great to see the market responding so positively.
“We have attempted to offer up this event at the most attractive price point possible. It’s a participant driven event that certainly doesn’t have the incredible fanfare attached to the Adelaide Rally, but what it does posses is amazing roads and 11 stages over one day with exceptional value.
“It’s the perfect shakedown for the Shannons Adelaide Rally” sites Possingham.
