The South East Automobile Club of South Australia’s Rally of Mount Gambier is in danger of being cancelled due to a lack of officials.

The event was already cancelled by the organisers once, but with the South Australian rallying community keen to see the event run, the SEAC have given themselves until March 20 to find the necessary officials to make the event happen.

The club currently need nearly 40 officials for the event, including stage commanders, start and finish controls and road closures.

The Rally of Mount Gambier is round one of the 2007 South Australian Rally Championship, and is scheduled for Saturday, May 5.

Anyone who is able to help on the event should contact Wendy Stingers, the event secretary, on 0438 557176.

EVENT DETAILS

The event was last run as a round of the SARC in 2005. As with all SARC rounds, the event is pacenoted. A road book will be provided, but crews are strongly advised to pacenote. The roads will be fast and technical and SARC road books are not designed for blind navigation.

The format of the event will be pacenoting on Friday, May 4, with the rally commencing at 10am on Saturday, May 5 with a Super Special Stage at the club's own track just outside Mt Gambier.

The Super Special stage is planned to run like a WRC Super Special with two cars on the track, which has a tunnel and fly-over. This stage is run three times during the event.

The other stages are a mix of shire roads and forest stages, all limestone or high quality gravel varying from 5km to a 27km in length. There is a total of 132km competitive and 253km transport. The final stage is run at night and is a combination of shire/forest stages run earlier in the day.
