Rich River Trial plans underway
- 5th July 2007, 10:29am
The Rich River roads offer a fascinating variety of driving surfaces and conditions with a mixture of smooth, cambered earthen roads, tracks over undulating sand dune country and tight and twisty trails through grassy river red gum forests.
Crews will encounter dust, mud, yumps, creek crossings, and gates that will need to be opened (and shut), all of which reflect some of the features of historic rallying and the unique challenges that the Rich River forests have to offer.
The rally commences with a short display of the ‘Historic cars in the Historic Port’ area of Echuca. This will be a great chance for locals, whether they’re ‘historic’ or just a little kid, to get up close and take a look at these exciting cars.
The crews will head off from event headquarters at the Bridge Hotel, with an afternoon touring stage of approx 100km to the east of Echuca, visiting the Stewart’s Bridge, Lower Moira, Yambuna Bridge and Kanyapella areas.
After a dinner break back at the Historic Port area, crews will tackle the challenging night stages in the Bama, Moira and Gulpa Forests to the north east of Echuca, arriving back at the finish close to midnight.
A post event function will be held at the Bridge Hotel, and with plenty of accommodation available within walking distance, most competitors and officials are expected to stay overnight and then enjoy a leisurely Sunday morning sampling the many attractions of the Echuca-Moama district before heading home after lunch.
