Quit Forest Rally drops entry fees
- 20th January 2015, 2:09am
Entries are now open for Round 1 of the East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship and Western Australian Rally Championship. The good news is the event has been able to reduce the Entry Fees and have all the ARC Categories paying the same Entry Fee.
Clerk of Course, Ross Tapper said “We are very fortunate to have great sponsors in Healthway Eventscorp, Trade Hire, City of Busselton and many others. When the City of Busselton, who promote themselves as the Events Capital of W.A., increased their support of the rally, it was the right thing to do to reduce the Entry Fee’s and encourage more competitors to come to Busselton and be part of the Quit Forest Rally.
The reduced fees will go some way to covering the cost of interstate competitors crossing the Nullarbor”.
Fees for the ARC Outright (2WD) have been reduced by $670.00 and the 4WD National Series and Classic Rally Challenge by $230.00. All ARC Categories will pay an Entry Fee of just $1300.00. All ARC Categories will be seeded together on the start list. Entry Fees for the WA Rally Championship have also been reduced.
The Quit Forest Rally is using the online CAMS Event Entry System. This is a first for rallying. The Event Secretary, David Smith, has been working with the founder of the Event Entry System, Jeff Brown, to make it compatible with rallying and they are both happy that is user friendly for competitors and event organisers.
The system will be used for all WARC events in 2015. Any competitors requiring assistance in using the Event Entry System are encouraged to call David on 0419 894 555.
The Trade Hire Busselton Stage will be changed again as the event fits in with the improvements being made to Barnard Park. The Start will be moved and will allow the public and food vans to be closer to the assembled rally cars and action, making the stage far more spectator friendly than 2014. The old fire strip has been removed and the stage will use Marine Terrace for the first time.
Other Stage changes in the Nannup pines will be modifications to the Ferndale and Ellis Stages to fit in with the forestry requests. The Healthway Loop has been modified to make it different for the competitors and spectators.
After 2014, all the roads where graded and are now in excellent condition. The main street of Nannup will be the Service Park. Motorbikes and quads will again be part of the rally. They will run on the same stages and the rally cars.
The Quit Forest Rally is looking forward to a strong field of interstate and local competitors.
