The opening rallycross meeting at Raleigh Park Raceway near Coffs Harbour in NSW was held last weekend.

Bob Watson (L) and Dave Morrow officially opened the Raleigh Rallycross track.The Rallycross circuit was officially opened by former rallycross stars Bob Watson from Victoria, and Dave Morrow from NSW, who unveiled a memorial celebrating the occasion.

The guests staged a match race to open the track, driving cars loaned by local competitors.

Watson drove a Mazda 323 owned by Erny Molina, local personality and son of the late great Lou Molina, while Morrow was in a Proton normally driven by Simon Biggs.

Also joining the opening ceremony was local state member of Parliament Andrew Fraser, a staunch motor sport enthusiast.

The Raleigh Raceway track was used for special stages in the recent Rally Australia WRC round, and is a great place for spectators who can see all of the action from the grassy spectator embankments.

Competitors also relished the exciting mixture of tarmac and gravel, with a jump and a water splash still to be added.

The opening meeting was well supported by local enthusiasts, and the future of Rallycross at the venue looks bright.
