Reeves to fine tune for ARC finale at Akademos Rally
- 13th October 2014, 11:26pm
With a two month break between the final two rounds of the ECB Australian Rally Championship (ARC), and the last round set to be the title decider, Brendan Reeves has entered this weekend’s Akademos Rally in Victoria to get some more competitive kilometres under his belt.
Reeves currently sits just 27 points adrift of Scott Pedder in the ARC title race and is determined to do everything possible to pip his rival at the final round, Rally Victoria, to be held near Warragul in Victoria in mid-November.
With regular co-driver Rhianon Gelsomino currently in the United States to contest the last round of the Rally America series, Tom Ryan, the son of rallyschool.com.au owner, Mick Ryan, will call the notes for Reeves at the Akademos. Ryan has serviced for Reeves numerous times over the years and recently competed at Rally Australia as a driver. The pair will compete in Reeves’ Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
Reeves’ last event was Rally Australia at Coffs Harbour in September and with the final round of the ARC still a month away, he is keen to get back behind the wheel and fine tune his driving skills ahead of the season finale.
“The Akademos Rally has always been a great concept with recce Saturday and rally Sunday,” Reeves said. “It’s four stages done twice and a great opportunity to drive again before Rally Vic and on similar roads.
“I have always enjoyed doing rounds of the Victorian Rally Championship over the years and this will be a fun event for us all.”
The Akademos Rally is round 4 of the Victorian Rally Championship and will be held around Alexandra in north east Victoria on October 19. Crews will contest 140 kilometres of competitive stages.
