Entries are now open for the 2013 Border Ranges Rally and all the relative information can be found on the event’s own web site www.borderrangesrally.com.au or the Gold Coast Tweed Motorsporting Club’s web site www.gctmc.org.au
For a relatively small club the Gold Coast Tweed Motorsporting Club is looking to big things with this year’s Border Ranges Rally.
The event will encompass all the Championships and State Awards imbedded within the Queensland Rally Championship; and the Hankook Tyres QLD Unrestricted Rally Championship. It will also now be the second round of the Webstor East Coast Classic Rally Challenge. The event will also cater for ‘Other Classics’; those that are not part of any Championship or Series. Any car that does not meet any other category, such as a Metro XR4, Quattro, or Grunter can run in the “All Comers” category.
Clerk of the Course Stephen Davies says, “Even though the BRR is a round of the QRC it is no secret we are chasing the Classics. The smooth, fast, open roads, easy format, simple servicing and friendly atmosphere are what we are all about. Ross Dunkerton ran here last year and loved it.”
The four day event runs from the 8th to the 11th of August and will be based in Kyogle, northern NSW and use 140km of some of the best and fastest gravel shire roads in the country.
Thursday will be an optional Media Day and Friday is reconnaissance. Friday night there will be a Super Special where the crews go head to head around the Kyogle Showgrounds. Saturday the rally will be based at the Woodenbong Showgrounds and compete on the stages similar to previous years but now with a tarmac spectator point right in the township of Urbenville.
Early evening the famous Woodenbong township tarmac spectator point and double run up the hill completes Saturday’s activities. Sunday the rally will be based in Kyogle and run over stages from the 2009 WRC and pass twice through the famous Hillyards spectator point. The finish presentation party will follow in Kyogle early Sunday afternoon.
