Expanded and Full Field for Mitta Mountain Rally and Mitta MastersExpanded and Full Field for Mitta Mountain Rally and Mitta Masters

Mitta enjoyed 60 entries last year with VRC, Masters, VCRS and including ten entries from NSW, but with the downturn in VRC entries towards the end of 2022, Mitta Organisers were willing to accept the offer to also be part of the NSWRC in 2023, and deal with an oversubscribed field if it ever occurred.

The field limit has been increased from 60 to 80, and 90 entries have been received to date from the crews listed in the attached table.

The larger field is not expected to cause issues with roads in the forest, but will require the co-operation of crews to maintain a smoothly operating service park.

Entry fees have not been received yet from some of the listed entries. Entries will not be formally accepted until a full entry fee payment has also been received. Note that early bird discount closes on Wednesday 8 February. If the entry fee is not received from any of the following crews before the close of entries on 22 February (8 pm), then that crew will be removed from the Entry List and be replaced by the next available entry on the Reserve List.

Coffs Harbour Rally Date Change to 25th May 2024: The Return of the Coffs Coast RallyCoffs Harbour Rally Date Change to 25th May 2024: The Return of the Coffs Coast Rally

Coffs Harbour, NSW – The rallying community eagerly anticipates the return of the Coffs Coast Rally, set to take place on the 25th of May 2024. This iconic event, which holds cherished memories for many rally enthusiasts, is making a comeback after several years, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Coffs Harbour & District Sporting Car Club.

The Coffs Coast Rally, a former WRC round that has left lasting impressions on competitors and spectators alike, will resume its place in the rally calendar starting this year. The organizing team has been hard at work to ensure a successful revival of this beloved event, aiming to establish it as an annual highlight for years to come.

Originally scheduled for the 20th of April, the event has been rescheduled to the 25th of May. This change was necessary due to a concurrent bicycle event that would have utilised some of the rally roads, as well as to allow ample time for comprehensive event organisation.

While initially planned as a round of the Clubman Rally Series and Hyundai-Kia Rally Series, the new date places it just two weeks before the Bega Valley Rally. To avoid potential scheduling conflicts and ensure the smooth flow of competition, the Coffs Coast Rally will not be part of these series in 2024.

Despite this adjustment, the Coffs Coast Rally is expected to draw a strong field of competitors, particularly from the north coast and Queensland regions. Its inclusion as a round of the Queensland Rally Championship further adds to its allure and competitive spirit.

For those not competing, the rally organisers extend an invitation to join as volunteers. Volunteering offers a unique opportunity to be part of this thrilling event while contributing to its smooth operation and success.

The NSW Rally Panel extends its best wishes to the diligent organising team for a successful event and looks forward to continued collaboration in 2024 and beyond.

Narooma Forest Rally Date Change to 24th August 2024Narooma Forest Rally Date Change to 24th August 2024

Narooma, NSW – The highly anticipated Narooma Forest Rally, initially scheduled for the 31st of August 2024, will now take place a week earlier on the 24th of August 2024. This change comes in response to a request from Eurobodalla Shire, citing the local football grand final to be held on the originally planned weekend at the rally’s service park.

Eurobodalla Shire noted that the rescheduling was necessary due to the overlap with the football grand final, which would have posed logistical challenges for both events. Additionally, the demand for accommodation during the grand final weekend would have made it difficult for rally participants and spectators to secure suitable lodging.

Despite the date change, the Narooma Forest Rally remains a pivotal event in the NSW rally scene and will continue to showcase top-tier competition. In 2024, it will serve as a round of several prestigious rally series:

  • NSW Rally Championship
  • NSW Clubman Rally Series
  • NSW Hyundai-Kia Rally Series
  • East Coast Classic Rally Series 2WD
  • East Coast Classic Rally Series 4WD

“Narooma is one of the most popular events on the NSW Rally Calendar for good reason,” said Rob O’Toole, Chairman of the NSW Rally Panel. “We appreciate the understanding of all stakeholders regarding this date change and look forward to an exciting and successful rally.”

For those not competing, the rally organisers extend an invitation to join as volunteers. Volunteering offers a unique opportunity to be part of this thrilling event while contributing to its smooth operation and success.
