Preparations to stage Repco Rally Australia on 3-6 September will continue unabated despite an attempt by opponents of the FIA World Rally Championship event to have it stopped in the Federal Court.

Rally Australia today was served with notice of an application for a temporary injunction by Ms Katie Milne.

Chairman of the Rally Australia Board, Alan Evans, said the move would not distract the organisers from continuing the work to stage the world’s most environmentally-friendly rally.

“This misconceived application will, of course, be vigorously defended,” Mr Evans said.

“They must know that the Federal and State Government environmental authorities have looked at all of this.

“If these people who are now wanting to go to court had any confidence at all in their position, they would have placed it before a judge months ago.  All the information has been in the open for a long, long time.

“Instead, they have waited until the teams are on their way and thousands of people have made personal and financial commitments that cannot be undone before they launch their court proceedings. ”

“We are fully committed to running an environmentally responsible rally for the benefit of the people of the region and the sport.”
