Forest Fire Management Victoria has today advised that a permit will be issued for the Victoria Cross Rally, albeit with substantial reductions in the available roads due to damage from recent rain events. So rather than cancel, we’ll do the best we can to reorganise the event at short notice.
The Victoria Cross will now comprise three special stages, each run twice, for a total competitive distance of 52.7km. Total event distance will be 159.4km. The start, service location and finish remain at the State Motorcycle Complex, Broadford with the first car starting at 7.45pm. Spectators can view the action at No 1 Camp from 10.50pm.
Entries close next Monday, 31 October at 20:00hrs and can be made via the Motorsport Australia entry portal.
In addition to being rounds of the Victorian Club Rally Series, the HRA Rally Championship and, for the Regularity component, the HRA Standard Car Class Series, the event is open to grade A and other competitors who may wish to compete prior to the Alpine Rally, subject to the field not being fully subscribed by crews qualifying for these championships.
