NSW’s popular AMSAG rally series will resume in early July, according to series president, Michael Bannon. “Currently the Forestry Corporation of NSW embargo on Event Permits is still in place until 1st July 2020. This means any events planned prior to 1st July will not be going ahead at this stage,” Bannon said. “Our plan is to begin with the Bulahdelah Rally as the first event as it is scheduled to be run after the 1st July date set down by Forestry. “This will also be reliant upon the easing of restrictions of public gatherings by the Federal and State Governments.” However, AMSAG believe they would require limits on public gatherings to be increased to at least 400 people to accommodate for officials, competitors and service crews to attend events. “This is in excess of the current Step 3 plan release recently by the Federal Government (which only allows for gatherings of 100 people),” Bannon added. “A gathering of 100 persons would be not be feasible given this would restrict us to a maximum number of competitors of approximately 20 cars (allowing for driver, navigator and two service crew members per car) to be present in the Service Park at any one time, in addition to our regular service park officials, FIV etc.” AMSAG plan to procede with all of their remaining events on the dates originally set out in the rally and rallysprint calendars, and will attempt to slot in any postponed events once other calendars have been confirmed, to ensure there are no clashes of events.
