The race for the Rallyschool.com.au Australian Junior Challenge will come down to the final Round at Rally Victoria when six of the brightest young drivers will slug it out for the right to hold the title aloft.
Following the five qualifying Rounds held over the course of the East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship the following young drivers have earned an entry into the finale.
At the National Capital Rally in Canberra at the start of the season Steve Mackenzie steered his Ford Fiesta into contention. At Scouts Rally SA local driver Guy Tyler proved too strong in his Renault Clio.
At the International Rally of Queensland Luke Page was the toast of the junior field in his Toyota Corolla. And at the last Round in Coffs Harbour two qualifiers earnt their start at the finale with Scott Jackson in his Nissan Silvia and Glen Raymond in his Mazda RX7.
With no qualifier held at the Quit Forest Rally a wildcard entry was awarded to Henry Nott who debuted his brand new BMW 1 series at Coates Hire Rally Australia.
Six drivers with nothing to loose and everything to gain! Each driver will be awarded with a set of four Kumho tyres for making it to the finale at Rally Victoria, and each will fight it out for an incredible prize package.
The eventual winner of the rallyschool.com.au Australian Junior Challenge will win outright registration in the 2014 Australian Rally Championship, a full day's tuition with Brendan Reeves, an exclusive Rallyschool Day for their 2014 sponsors, a 3-minute promotional video professionally produced by Black Magic, free entry to 2014 Rally Australia and a further four Kumho tyres.
“I want to congratulate each of the qualifiers for doing an amazing job to earn a place in the final,” said rallyschool.com.au owner Michael Ryan.
“I really look forward to watching the action amongst the Juniors at Rally Victoria, I’m sure it’ll be a tight battle and the eventual winner will truly have deserved the prize package,” Ryan added.
Each of the six drivers have earned their place, they've proven their speed and tenacity, and the only thing standing between them and the ultimate prize is each other – at Rally Victoria it will be game on!
