The Eureka Rush rally, round four of the Australian Rally Championship has received more backing from the Victorian Government and Ballarat Council as the event nears its third installment in the series. Toyota's Harry Bates has won all four heats of the rally in both its years, and with the addition of a super special stage this year, the rally is going from strength to strength. “Victoria lives and breathes sport, and no one puts on a show like we do,” Mr Pakula, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Victoria said. “We love motor sports and are proud to host the biggest four and two-wheel events in Australia including the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, Winton V8 SuperSprint and Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.” Ballarat mayor, Sarah McIntosh echoes the minister's comments. "This popular rally adds to the growing range of exciting national events we host on an annual basis,” Cr McIntosh said.

“This year’s added spectator element, the Super Special Stage and national media exposure is estimated to return an economic injection of more than $5M into our local community.” A major pull for the event in 2019 is the entry of international star, Hayden Paddon, to the Asia Pacific Rally Championship series component. Paddon won the WRC's Rally Argentina in 2016 and will drive a Hyundai i20 R5 in the event. The Eureka Rush will run on the 24th and 25th of August, 2019.
