Rally Oz plans continue unabated, despite court injunction
- 25th August 2009, 8:46am
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 worldâ€™s most environmentally-friendly rally.
â€œThis misconceived application will, of course, be vigorously defended,â€ Mr Evans said.
â€œThey must know that the Federal and State Government environmental authorities have looked at all of this.
â€œIf 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.
â€œInstead, 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. â€
â€œWe are fully committed to running an environmentally responsible rally for the benefit of the people of the region and the sport.â€
