Brisbane based company Webstor has announced it will be the naming rights sponsor for the second annual East Coast Classic Rally Challenge which is returning in 2013, giving classic rally competitors a super three round rally series for classic rally machines.
The Webstor East Coast Classic Rally Challenge will have rounds run in conjunction with the Bega Valley Rally on the Queens Birthday long weekend on 9th June, the Kumho Tyres Rally of the Bay in Batemans Bay on 29 June and the Border Ranges Rally at Kyogle in Northern NSW on 9th -11th August.
It is the second year the East Coast Classic Rally Challenge has run following its success in 2012 and this year it has attracted   the support of website implementation business Webstor. As part of its sponsorship, Webstor is supplying $1000 prize money for the series
The Webstor East Coast Classic Rally Challenge has aroused attention from the growing ranks of classic rally competitors and organisers are hoping the great drivers roads at all three events will attract a healthy fleet of classic Escorts, Datsuns, Porsches, Toyotas, Holdens and Triumphs in chase of the Challenge title.
"This is all about honouring the heritage of our sport and giving those who are rebuilding old classic machines and those building replicas some great roads and events to compete on in a series especially designed for classic machines," said Rally of the Bay manager, Colin Fletcher.
"In the 1970s when the classic Ford Escorts, Datsun Stanzas, Holden V8s and other machines were the stars of the sport the Bega Valley Rally earned its reputation as one of the great drivers events, while a little way up the coast at Batemans the Bunbury Curran Rally was a favourite drivers rally as well," said Fletcher.
"In recent times the Border Ranges Rally has stamped itself as an event that offers great competition for classic competitors and this year will use some of the 2009 Rally Australia roads and that alone will be a huge attraction for classic competitors," he added.
Bega Valley Rally, clerk of course Tom Snooks played a significant role in the golden era of rallying and while he now runs the far South Coast event he also had a key management position in the legendary Southern Cross Rally in the golden era of the sport in Australia, and is keen to see the heritage of the sport recognised and nurtured.
Those choosing to pursue the East Coast Classic Rally Challenge need only to enter and compete in the three rallies with points being awarded for all three events.
The Webstor East Coast Classic Challenge is open to competitors participating in two wheel drive vehicles that meet the definition of Classic Rally Cars as per the 2013 CAMS Manual.
The Challenge will be decided on a competitor's best two results from the three rallies that are part of the series.
There is no registration requirement to participate in the Challenge however at each event competitors must indicate to the Organisers prior to the close of documentation that they wish to be included in the point score calculations. Only crews and vehicles that have been nominated will be considered when allocating points.
At each event points for crews that have nominated for inclusion and competed in an eligible vehicle will be allocated nine points for first place, six points for second, four points for third, two points for fifth and one point for sixth.
Each of the participating events will, at a minimum, award a trophy or other suitable recognition to the crew receiving the first place points in the Challenge.
A Challenge Trophy will be awarded to the winning crew following the last round.
