Competitors in Classic Adelaide this year  have found  that organisers are  serious about clamping down on inappropriate speeding with two  drivers  receiving hefty fines  from both the  SA Police and  the rally management.

Two drivers  were detected speeding in a 60 km/h zone on a transport stage  during today’s second leg  to Victor Harbour and have found their wallets considerably lighter as a result.

“One driver was detected at 79km/h  and  will receive a $290 fine from the civil authorities  and has also been fined $750 by the rally under our new scale of penalties for disobeying civil road rules,” said rally general manager, Bob Carpenter.

“The other competitor was detected at 81 km/h in a 60 zone  resulting in a $290 penalty from the police and a $1000 fine which underlines our commitment to ensure that competitors act responsibly and don’t create dangerous situations during transport stages on roads we  share with the general public,” Carpenter added.

Rally organisers doubled  and in some cases trippled penalties before this year’s event to act as a further deterrent.
