The Eureka Rush, Victoria's round of the Australian Rally Championship, will base itself out of the small town of Beaufort, 50km west of Ballarat.
Beaufort, a small town of around 1,500 people, will house the service park for the second one-day ARC round of the season, which is set for new challenges.
A change in organisers will see eight brand new stages run in the Pyrenees, presenting new challenges for the country's best drivers who have tackled stages north-east and south of Ballarat in years gone.
In the sole day of action, competitive kilometers will almost exceed liaison in the compact event.
The fourth round of the series will also see crews navigate a super special stage in Ballarat on Saturday evening.

In Tasmania's return to the championship in 2018, almost 5,000 spectators lined their street stage, and organisers will be hoping the Ballarat public turn out in a similar way.
The Eureka Rush will run on the 24th and 25th of August, and will also double as a round of the popular Victorian Rally Championship.
