The upcoming Quit Forest Rally’s entry list has been released, and in doing so has showcased one of the major changes to this year’s East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship – a return to a fully seeded running order.
This change will see the Outright 2WD, National 4WD and Classic Rally Challenge competitors starting in their seeded order, with the top ten alone featuring an incredibly diverse range of cars.

Two time Australian Rally Champion Eli Evans, in his first outing as Citroen Australia’s lead driver, heads the field ahead of brother and four time Australian Rally Champion Simon Evans, who makes his ARC debut at the wheel of Eli’s former Honda Civic Type-R.
South Australian flyer Henry Nott starts fourth on the road in his recently acquired Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX, ahead of young gun Steve Mackenzie’s front-wheel drive Ford Fiesta ST and Mark Pedder’s newly imported Peugeot 208 ‘Maxi’ car.
WA teen Dylan King lines up eighth in his Subaru Impreza WRX, against the vastly experienced local Doug Tostevin in a similar Impreza, while the final place in the top ten goes to Neal Bates, with four Australian Championship’s to his name, in the first of the Classic entries.
Spectators will have action all the way down the field though, with Adrian Coppin and Tony Sullens both in Citroen DS3’s, the return of Molly Taylor in Scott Pedder’s Championship winning Renault Clio R3 and Ashlea James’ first foray of the year in his new VW Polo.
The ECB ARC crews will then make way for a host of talented steerers contesting the WA Rally Championship and the Clubman Cup Series.
The Quit Forest Rally gets underway on Friday 27th March at 6.03pm with the first of two runs around the 2.66km Trade Hire Busselton Super Special Stage, before continuing across two full days of fierce competition in the forests around Nannup.
