Lightforce Rallies SA 2017 – Sister Events
This year, Lightforce Performance Lighting is the naming rights sponsor for two very different events. The sister events are Lightforce Rally SA – The Rally of the Heartland in June, and Lightforce Rally SA – The ARC event in September
Supplementary Regulations are out for the Heartland event, and will be published in late May for the ARC event
Both events will also be rounds of the SARC
A brief summary of each event follows:-
The Rally of the Heartland
2/3/4 June 2017
This event is aimed at Classic Car comp etitors. The CAMS C1, C2, C3 and C4 categories will be eligible, along with an All Comers category. The event is being held in the same timeframe as the bi-annual Classic Outback Trial, June, but in its off year. This will provide some continuity for classic car entrants, and an outstanding opportunity to tune up/ test for the Alpine in November.
The Rally is a 350 competitive km event in a relatively compact loop, based in the Hallett/Burra area, with long special stages on bulletproof roads – all with special stage set-up. Stages through wind farms are a special feature.
The event will run on just the Saturday and Sunday and is also a round of the SARC on the Saturday. All Categories will do a very long 70km+ night stage.
Officials can camp on the course at a local property owners venue – cheap, big skies, fires, BBQ – what could be better??
The Rally will be known as:-
Lightforce Rally SA – The Rally of the Heartland
The ARC Round
15-17 September 2017
This event is our "traditional" one, and is the SA round of the Australian Rally Championship. It is also a SARC round.
The rally is a 190km competitive event based in Mount Crawford, and will feature all the popular stages, with a seriously interesting twist around locations, and a brand new approach to the RallySafe Introductory Rally
The event will run on 2 days, Friday afternoon and night for the Nationals only, and Saturday, the SARC round, will be all entrants.
The event will be known as:-
Lightforce Rally SA
Officials, as always, will be a key component, and there is lots of opportunity to get involved. Officials can register for one, or other, or both of the events at http://lightforcerallysa.com.au/register-as-a-volunteer/
