Narooma 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.
