Rally Radio hits the airwaves at Rally Calder
- 1st March 2012, 9:10am
Rally Radio 99.7 FM, will be available in the local vicinity of Rally Calder and all Rally Calder patrons who purchase a Rally Calder program for just $10 will receive a free FM radio to ensure they can stay abreast of all the action from the service park to the current stage and the forum battle competition.
Scott Pedder, CEO of the Bosch Australian Rally Championship, believes the addition of Rally Radio will complement the coverage of the 2012 Bosch ARC.
“Rally Radio is another innovation we are bringing to rally fans, it will bring expert commentary, results as they happen and live interviews,” he said.
‘Combine this the Honda Rally Live website and 2012’s Championship will be the most extensively covered Bosch ARC ever,” he added.
Not only will Rally Radio be available in to local vicinity of Calder Park, but it will also be simulcast live on the Honda Rally Live website so anyone unable to make it to Calder Park can still tune in by logging onto the Honda Rally Live Website.
More than 2.5 million Australians will see the Bosch ARC on TV in 2012 and the series will generate more than 36 hours of national television across the Ten/One HD network - a media equivalency value exceeding $6 million. The Bosch Australian Rally Championship has also re-signed multi-national fuel and lubricant giant BP as the primary fuel supplier and Korean tyre giant Kumho as the exclusive tyre supplier for the championship for the third year.
The opening round of the 2012 Bosch ARC, Rally Calder presented by East Coast Bullbars, is scheduled for March 1-4 at Calder Park in Melbourne with round two, the Quit Forest Rally in WA on March 30-April 1, round three, the International Rally of Queensland on the Sunshine Coast, on May 24-27, the Rally of South Australia in the Adelaide Hills from July 29-31 making up the fourth round, while round five, the Coffs Coast Rally will be run over the same roads used for Australia’s World Championship round at Coffs Harbour on October 13-14. The grand finale to the Bosch ARC will be Rally Victoria in Gippsland on November 9-10.
