The EXEDY Victorian Rally Championship heads to the famous fishing town of Eden on the NSW Safire Coast for Round 2 on Sunday, June 12.
 
52 crews from Victoria, New South Wales and the ACT have entered the popular event which will be fought out over 175 competitive kilometres in the forests to the east of Eden.  Round 1 winners Steve Kenway and Lauren Palmer in their WRX STi will be hoping for a repeat of their performance at the East Gippsland Stages, but will have to work hard for it. 

Warren Lee and David Lethlean are desperate for their first win of the season in the JDL EVO 9 and will push Kenway hard.   The father and daughter pairing of Craig and Carrie Morris will be back after their massive crash at EGS and looking to shake off the bad luck after they were setting some fastest stage times at Round 1 in Bairnsdale.

Long time VRC competitor Jesse Robison will also make his entrance to the 2011 EXEDY VRC after missing round 1 due to a motorbike injury sustained in the off season.  His normal co-driver Adam Wright is unavailable for the event and he will be joined by 2010 Champion co-driver Scott Spedding for the ride at Eden.

Steve and Glen Raymond will also be looking for a better result at Eden after suffering from problems at round 1.  David Nutter and Jenna Kelley will also be looking for an improvement on their round 1 result.

The EXEDY 2WD Championship will see Brian Semmens again pushing hard for a win, but the awesome sounding Escort RS1800 of Grant Walker and Craig Thomas is not expected to be far behind.  Cousins Scott and Tom Wright will be out to have a blast in their R31 Skyline showing that big is not always best but is a lot of fun. 

Alan Roe and Ray Farrell also showed good pace at Bairnsdale until problems struck them and they were forced to retire, but are expected to again be on the pace in their Nissan S13 Silvia on the fast flowing roads around Eden.

The BATRONIC Hyundai Rally Series also heads to Eden for Round 2 and points leaders Andrew Thompson and Corey Briede will have to work hard to keep Steven and Brent Mackenzie at Bay.  The Mackenzie brothers certainly won’t have it all their own way with Tony and Nikki Moore joining the series after missing round 1 due to ARC commitments in QLD.

All Victorian crews will be fighting to retain the Interstate Challenge Trophy which they won in 2010.

The first car will depart the Snug Cove Wharf in Eden at 8am on Saturday morning.
