Western NSW revving up for rally action!
- 27th May 2011, 11:56am
Based out of the Western NSW township of Forbes, the Forbes Inn Rally of Forbes will consist of a varying mixture of Shire Roads of the Forbes Region, including the fast, fine gravel stages to the North East of Forbes, to the Red Clay based stages around the Township of Eugowra, as well as a testing forest stage in Back Yamma State Forest. The event will consist of just over 190Km’s of competitive stages including a monster 49Km stage to finish off the days competition!
There will also be a central Service Park at the Showground in Eugowra, just 30mins drive from Forbes, which will be visited several times throughout the event.
For those of you concerned that this will be a flat out blast like the AMSAG Cowra Shire Rally, please don’t be misled by this being a Shire Rally as well, whilst this event utilizes the awesome, smooth and fast shire roads of the Forbes region, the stages themselves prove to be a lot more technical then those of the Cowra area, with a lot less of the long straights followed by a tight corner then another long straight, this events nature is completely different given the natural terrain being a lot more undulating then the flat plains of Cowra.
The natural undulating landscape around Forbes means that the stages will be a good test for all competitors. Event Checker, Peter "Batty" Batt has described the roads being used as "similar to those used around Eden/Bega, basically it's the Eden of the West! "
AMSAG are pleased to advise AASA Licences will also be accepted for this event, but you must still obtain an AMSAG membership to compete, AMSAG membership is free and easily obtained by applying on the AMSAG website.
As well as being Round 3 of the Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series, this event will also be Round 2 of the 2WD Rally Masters Series, and also Round 2 of the AMSAG Rookie Series.
Also AMSAG are pleased to announce that included in the entry fee are 3 meals for Driver & Navigators, the meals to be provided will be Breakfast at Start Venue, this will be cereal and bacon and egg rolls etc. provided by Forbes Rotary Club, Lunch at Eugowra Showground (Central Service Park), this will be Hot Soups, Roast Beef & Gravy rolls etc. provided by St Joseph Public School Eugowra, Dinner will be at the Event Presentation venue and Major Event Sponsor The Forbes Inn, the meal has been described by event Director as "an Indoor BBQ", The Forbes Inn has a fantastic Open air auditorium area where the club will prepare a fantastic hearty meal, perfect after a hard days competition.
