The Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series will see two new events joining series regulars in a new look calendar.
The year will start with the Rosewood Rally to be conducted by Wagga Districts Car Club on 18th April. In what is becoming a competitor favourite, the Rosewood Rally will feature the same fast flowing stages as per recent years with the addition of some new stages which have not been run in over 25 years.
The series will then move to Orange for Round 2 to be held on 23rd May. Similar fast and flowing roads to Rosewood will greet competitors for the Orange Rally. An event that is as challenging as it is rewarding for drivers that are able to drive to the limit, the Orange event will be a must do event for competitors in 2020.
Round 3 will be the Bulahdelah Rally on 18th July which will feature a slightly revised format to previous year’s details of which to be released closer to the event. Stages will be changed again to keep some variety, but all of the favourites will remain in one format or another. This promises to be another popular event.
The series will then move further north for the next round in Coffs Harbour on 15th & 16th August. This much anticipated event unfortunately had to be cancelled in 2019, however for 2020 we will be back bigger and better. The event will feature stages used in previous years WRC events hand picked by local larrikin Nathan Quinn and will certainly become a marquee event for the series.
The Fifth Round will bring competitors back down the coast to Wauchope. To be run by Hastings Sporting Car Club, the Bago Rally returns to the Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series after several years in hiatus with the event now to be based out of the Wauchope Showgrounds. The stages based around Wauchope are some of the best on the Mid North Coast, featuring in many Southern Cross Rallies of the 1980’s.
The Sixth and Final Round will run on 7th November from Walcha on the Northern Tablelands of NSW. The event will feature a mixture of Shire and Forest stages harking back to the days of the Blue Ribbon Rally. AMSAG look forward to bringing in a new rally to the series which is sure to be a challenge to crews.
AMSAG are also excited to announce the formation of the 2020 Midstate Freight Rallysprint Series which will feature 5 events spread across the state. The rallysprint series is designed as a stepping stone for those competitors who may not be ready to step up to a full blown rally or the Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series as a whole.
Round 1 will be the Hastings Rallysprint to be run by the Hastings Sporting Car Club on 14th March. The Hastings Rallysprint will be a great opener to the season for crews wanting to blow the cobwebs out after the off season break.
Round 2 will then head down the road to Coopernook just north of Taree. Another new Rallysprint to AMSAG, this event will be another great opportunity for a fast and smooth event to test driver an machine.
The midpoint of the series will be Round 3 based out of Tumut. Another event to be run by Wagga Districts Car Club was very popular with competitors in 2019 and will sure to be another one not to be missed in 2020. The event will again run out of the Bondo forest to the East of Tumut on 20th June.
The series will then return north again to Armidale on 24th October with the New England Sporting Car Club’s Metz Gorge Rallysprint. Based yet again out of the Echinda Gully Function Centre grounds the event features a purpose built section of road surrounding the Function Centre to give spectators and service crews the opportunity to see their crews in action. The Function Centre also doubles as the accommodation provider and Presentation Venue. If you missed this event in 2019, be sure to make the journey up there in 2020 as you will not be disappointed.
The Fifth and Final Round of the series will be run from Black Springs to the West of Oberon on 21st November. A traditional stomping ground for AMSAG events, Blacks Springs will be a fitting end to the 2020 season.
AMSAG would like to acknowledge the devastation that has occurred in Northern NSW following the recent Bushfires. We look forward to bringing more events to these areas next year to try and inject some much needed economical boosts to the North Coast townships who openly embrace our events year in and year out.
AMSAG are also pleased to announce our Bushfire Appeal. AMSAG have donated a portion of the profits from 4 of our events this year to worthy causes helping with the Bushfire emergency which is still continuing to threaten properties. $500 from the profits taken from our 2019 Rosewood, Orange, Bulahdelah and Johns River events totalling $2,000 will be donated to The Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery, Blaze Aid, Koalas In Care and the Johns River Rural Fire Service Brigade.
