Planning for the 2007 Alpine Rally is well advanced and with almost 80 expressions of interest already received from competitors, this year’s event is set to be one of the biggest and best ever.

The weekend of November 24 and 25 will see the East Gippsland tourist town of Lakes Entrance play host to 100 of the best Classic and 2-wheel drive rally cars and crews in Australia as they compete over arguably some of the best rally roads this country has to offer. There will be 380km of competitive stages, including an awesome 35km stage on bitumen.

Spectators will once again be treated to a host of exciting vantage points including one point within five minutes of the start/finish location at Kalimna, and some new never-before-used points that should keep the excitement flowing all weekend.

Victorian rally icon, Stuart Lister, has once again agreed to oversee the event in the position of Chairman, with experienced East Gippsland local, Andrew Roberts, again filling the all-important position of Road Director. There is also a team of experienced and enthusiastic people already in place to look after the huge task of making the ‘Alpine Magic’ come alive.

With the support of many communities in East Gippsland, the 2007 Alpine Rally will also help to showcase the region which was badly affected by bushfires last summer, but is now ‘open for business’ and keen to show what a fantastic destination it is.

Accommodation is being handled by the East Gippsland Visitor Centre and can be organised by calling 1800 637080 or visiting www.lakesandwilderness.com.au  

If you are intending to compete in the Alpine Rally you will need be quick. Download the expression of interest form from either www.alpinerally.org.au  or the HRA website www.hra.org.au  and return them ASAP as places are filling fast - we would hate to see you miss out on experiencing some ‘Alpine Magic’.
