Matt Selley and Joanna Fuller will be hoping to win their first South Australian Rally Championship at the Kuitpo Forest Rally on October 27.

Matt and Joanna go into the rally with a 42.5 point lead in the championship over the Mt Gambier crew of Gary Brown and Mike Dale. Declan Dwyer, who has won the past two South Australian Rally Championships, is a further 7.5 points behind.

With a 50% bonus for the last round applying to the Kuitpo Forest Rally, there are 75 points available for the winner. This means that mathematically the top five competitors in the points table are in with a chance of taking out this year’s championship.

Matt and Joanna will be hoping for a better result than last year where they failed to finish the event. If they play the numbers game they only need to finish in the top eight to make it impossible for Gary Brown and the rest of the crews to win. They have also taken on the difficult task of not only trying to win the South Australian Rally Championship, but backing up the next day to compete in the Adelaide Hills Tarmac Sprint, which is the first ever CAMS South Australian Tarmac Rally Championship.

What a weekend it could be if they could take out two South Australian Rally Championships in two days.

Selley and Fuller will have a long list of experienced tarmac competitors eyeing off the inaugural South Australian Tarmac Rally Championship prize of a $1000 ACM Motorsport voucher, and the accolades of winning a CAMS State Championship. There are a host of fast Classic Adelaide crews coming out for a shakedown before this year’s event.

With entries still open, there has been a good response to both events with over 30 already entered in the Kuitpo Forest Rally, and 30 entries for the Adelaide Hills Tarmac Sprint. Entries close on October 22, and Supp Regs and event information are available from www.asprally.com
