2008 Old BP Rally to be sponsored by BP!

…and other pre event planning progress.  An update from Ross Runnalls

It may sound surprising, but it has been difficult to raise interest from BP in Old BP rallies in the recent past. I received a prompt and enthusiastic response from BP to a modest sponsorship proposal. It is great that a global company like BP has found some sentimental space for us in its considerable motorsport program.

Red Centre to Gold Coast IS on as planned

When it was announced that Rally Australia would be run in Queensland in 2008, Bob Watson had the idea to run the Red Centre to Gold Coast Trial as an outback event, finishing at Rally Australia.

Rally Australia has since been deferred until at least 2009, but it is the wish of the majority of paid entrants in the Red Centre to Gold Coast Trial that the event go ahead as planned.

Progress for 2008 Old BP Rally

Since outlining initial philosophy and plans, I have made a few forays into the countryside and can report that the route is 95% planned and confirmed in the field. The next step is getting appropriate authorities and residents to agree. That may not be so easy.

Tayell Automotive TA results now available

Clerk of Course Rick Hartmann has released version 2 of the event results - now available on the Tayell Automotive TA page

There will be lots of happy competitors getting awards at the December club night - there were an amazing number of equal placings, including four crews on equal second outright!  Congratulations to all of you!
