The 2008 NEC Australian Rally Championship calendar has been released.
The 2008 Championship will follow the same structure as 2007, with the opening round being held in Queensland in March, and the rally season coming to a close in Melbourne in October.
Although it was anticipated that a tarmac event would be included in the championship, the championship retains the same six events that ran in 2007.
The championship finishes a month earlier in 2008, with a two month gap between round five at Forster in NSW, and round six in Melbourne. The Rally of Canberra will again be a round of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship, as well as the ARC.
