The Director of Rally Australia Pty Ltd, and the Chairman of the Organising Committee, Garry Connelly, has resigned from his position. Connelly has recently been re-elected for a four-year term on the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

Connelly always intended to stand down after the running of the first Rally Australia on the east coast, an event he believes was an outstanding success.

“I have great confidence that the collective abilities of the Board, the Organising Committee and the Sporting Council will ensure that the 2011 event is even better than the 2009 edition,” Connelly said.

“It was a great pleasure to have worked with so many professional and dedicated people and I will still take a very deep interest in the future success of this outstanding motor sport event.”

Connelly’s replacement has not yet been announced.
