The driver and co-driver of a car competing in the Classic Adelaide rally have been killed in a crash this afternoon, rally organisers announced.

The crash happened around 3.30 pm on the 7.24 kilometre Special Stage 6, called Kersbrook Reverse, on Norsworthy Road, Forreston.

An emergency medical vehicle stationed at the start of the stage attended the crash.

The stage was stopped immediately and following cars diverted to the next stage.

The South Australia Police Major Crash Unit is attending the scene and the road will remain closed until further notice.

No further information will be issued for the time being.

Classic Adelaide Clerk of Course Ivar Stanelis extended the event’s deepest condolences to the victim’s families and support crew.

“We all understand that motor racing can be dangerous despite the extensive safety systems in place, but that does nothing to alleviate the great sadness we now feel for the victims and their loved ones today,” Mr Stanelis said.

A full inquiry into the crash will be conducted by police and motorsport authorities.
