The PowerPlay Rallysprint has been given the green light and will run for the first time on Saturday June 15th 2013
The event will be run out of Yarck in Victoria less than two hours from Melbourne on the Maroondah highway and will be an all daylight rallysprint format.
With the aim of trying to create an event similar to the Toshiba Rallysprint’s of the 1980’s, the organizing team have come up with two fantastic sections on Shire roads which will challenge and reward both driver and navigator.
The two stages, one 5.5 kms in length and the other 8.0 kms in length will be run twice in each direction, the layout of the two stages is so that one is up hill and one is downhill on each run. The stages have something different to offer in each direction and will not disappoint, with both technical twisty sections and fast flowing sections on extremely smooth surfaces.
Included in the event entry fee will be supplied safety notes, competitors will get to drive over each section once in both directions, (prior to the competition starting), to check the course and make changes to the supplied safety notes, or write their own if they so desire..
Clerk of Course for this year’s PowerPlay Rallysprint will be the experienced
Stuart Lister, with assistance from Michael Conway from the HRA
The event is a multiclub event and welcomes members from all clubs, the field is limited to just 40 entries, so the organisers are advising competitors to get their entry in quickly so as not to miss out.
With an early morning start on the day and a post event function at the Yarck Hotel, some crews may wish to use accommodation at the nearby towns of Alexandra and Yea or camping at Molesworth. The Post event function, starting at 6.00 pm is a chance for the organizers to present the various overall and placing awards and for competitors to socialize and compare event stories. The function will be a fully catered buffet style meal with a choice of three spit roast meats and five salads at a cost of $28.50 per head. The organizers would like to see all of you there and have catered for approx. 100 – 120 persons.
We look forward to receiving your entry, and welcoming you to the 2013 PowerPlay Rallysprint
