1) The Road Runner event will have all the Closed Road Sections, Khanacross and other autotests which will be linked with straight forward touring sections.

Wanted - Rotisserie!

We are looking for a rotisserie to help prepare our VW Beetle – does any one have one for sale/rent?

The Magical Ironbark Tour 2017 is not that far away.

Moving to this area lets us utilize roads in the surrounding areas that are fair way from Heathcote. Our Road Director

Rich River Revival - Postponed!!

I completed a recce over the Easter weekend and determined that there are simply not enough roads suitable for the event at this stage.

So reluctantly I have decided to postpone til 2018. I have developed relationships with key agencies and I will look to leverage these in coming months to ensure that we have a great event for 2018.

Thanks you for your understanding.

Michael Foreshew
