Pacenoted Safari Rally in WA
- 29th September 2008, 2:43pm
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 – recce was held the week before the rally. Actual competition will start at 11:45am on Saturday 18 October.
State competitors will complete eight special stages totalling 150 competitive km through the Mundaring forests, whilst Clubman competitors will complete four special stages and half the competitive distance. The last car is due to finish at around 10:45pm on Saturday evening, meaning teams will be competing in the dark.
With the event being so close to Perth, the Light Car Club is looking to extend the event’s appeal by allowing free spectating at the rally.
Spectator 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 view 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)
Spectators are urged not to bring pets to the event. Animals and motorsport do not mix.
Entries are now open and close this Wednesday, October 1st.
Competitors are reminded it is their responsibility to ensure all paperwork is current and that all relevant paperwork must be produced at documentation or at any time during the event on demand by officials, organisers or the relevant civil authorities such as the police. The Light Car Club is taking a zero tolerance approach to missing, incorrect or out of date paperwork for this and future rallies.
Officials are still required for the rally. If you or someone you know would like a private spectator point in the forest, please contact Wendy on 0427 853 644 or Danielle on 0419 953 370.
