The Tasmanian Rally Championship is gearing up for its biggest season in years, with new cars, new competitors and up to five former champions on the start line. The four round championship doesn't get underway until Rally Tasmania in June, but already a long list of competitors have signalled their intentions to compete. Heading the list will be a two car team from the Maguire family, with Eddie driving his Lancer Evo 9, and brother, Steve, driving the ex-Glen Raymond machine that he has just purchased. Craig Brooks will be there in Molly Taylor's 2019 ARC Subaru WRX, while Jamie Vandenberg makes a welcome return to the gravel in a Lancer Evo 9. The success of Tasmania's Subaru Impreza RS series has also culminated in two fo the leading competitors switching to four-wheel drive cars.
