The annual Rallye Des Femmes event in Canberra has been postponed because of a lack of roads to rally on.

Scheduled for later this year, organisation of the popular rally was well advanced, but with a resolution regarding what roads the rally was allowed to use still some way off, Clerk of Course, David Stephens, was left with no option but to postpone the event.

“We had CAMS initial approval, supplementary regulations, a finished road-book, a ceremonial start and finish with a presentation dinner at a upmarket venue, sponsors and prizes, floral trophies, media coverage and plenty of lady drivers and novice male drivers wanting to enter,” Stephens said.

The Brindabella Motor Sport Club plan to run the event in February 2018.

The Rallye Des Femmes is the only event in Australia organised specifically for female drivers. The current Australian Rally Champion, Molly Taylor, is a past winner of the event.

Local driver, Cath Donohue, has won the event for the last six times that it has been held. The rally has regularly attracted a large field of all-female crews.

Peter has been the editor of RallySport Magazine since its inception in 1989, in both printed and online form. He is a long-time competitor, event organiser and official, as well as working in the media.

The Belgian Hyundai driver, Thierry Neuville, made up for last year in Sweden! This time he did not throw victory away.
