This Saturday, October 18, WA rally teams will be competing close to Perth for the final round of the WA State Rally Championship and round 5 of the WA Clubman Rally Series.

Run by the Light Car Club of WA, the Safari Rally will be staged in the forests around Mundaring Weir in the hills to the east of Perth.

The Safari will be fully pace noted with recce held the week before the rally. Actual competition will start at 11:45am on Saturday.

State competitors will complete eight special stages totalling 150 competitive km through the Mundaring Forests, whilst Clubman competitors will complete four special stages at half the competitive distance. The last car is due to finish at around 10:45 PM, meaning teams will be competing in the dark.

With the event being close to Perth, the Light Car Club is looking to extend the appeal by allowing free spectating of the rally.

Points have been set up in the forests to allow spectators to experience the sights and sounds of rally cars, tyres fighting for grip as they slide their way along the Mundaring pea-gravel roads. The service park, where teams frantically work against the clock to adjust, maintain and repair rally cars, is also available for spectating and gives a good close up of cars and team mechanics in action.

Spectator information will be available from Rally HQ at the Chidlow Town Hall, Old Northam Rd, Chidlow. The start, service park and finish will all be in and around the Chidlow Oval (opposite the town hall).

Further information on the rally can be found on the Light Car Club website.

Results and championship/series points and results are also available online at the Duetime website.
