Organisers of Repco Rally Australia, part of the FIA World Rally Championship, are seeking nominations for people to join two volunteer bodies which will help develop and implement environmental policy when the event comes to Northern New South Wales in September.

An Environmental Advisory Committee will comprise a small number of qualified individuals, including a Tweed Shire or Kyogle Shire resident, to advise the Repco Rally Australia Board on environmental policy.

An Environmental Monitoring Group, reporting to the Environmental Advisory Committee, will ensure environmental policies are implemented and monitor environmental issues during the event.

The Chairman of the Repco Rally Australia Organising Committee, Garry Connelly, said the event took its environmental responsibilities most seriously and recently had commissioned an independent expert to complete an environmental assessment.

“Minimising the impact on the environmental is of utmost importance to our event, hence the appointment of an independent consultant to undertake an environmental assessment, together with the establishment of this Committee and Group,” he said.

Rally organisers are requesting qualified individuals to nominate for either the Committee or the Group by next Saturday, 31 January, by contacting event headquarters in Murwillumbah on phone (02) 6676 7028 or email gary.upson@rallyaustralia.com.au.

Repco Rally Australia on 3-6 September will be round 10 of the 2009 FIA World Rally Championship, bringing one of the world’s most exciting and prestigious motorsport series and providing an international media showcase to the region.
