WA focus on Clubman Series
- 4th October 2006, 10:34am
Clubman teams will return to the hills east of Perth on this Saturday (October 7) to contest what is to be the very last Rally Australia Trial event.
The rally is so named as it is used as a training ground for officials, to test equipment and processes for the international event due to run later this month.
The Clubman Rally Series is open to two-wheel drive cars only. This means that many classic rally icons such as Datsun 1600s and Ford Escorts compete on an even footing with more contemporary cars, such as Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas.
The competition is always close amongst the teams and the action is great to watch. Approximately 70km of competitive special stages lay ahead of teams on the slippery and often dusty Mundaring stages.
Based out of Fred Jacoby Park along Mundaring Weir Rd, the service area, results and rally HQ will all be contained around the same area.
Hot food and drinks will be available on the day near the service area and spectating is free.
The first car is due to start at 11.30am and finish at around 4.00pm. Spectator information will be available from the results van located in the service area.
The last Telstra Rally Australia in WA is due to run from October 26-29. For more information on Australian WRC-qualifying event, log on to www.rallyaustralia.com.au
