Preview: AMSAG Oberon Rally

 

The first round of the PipeKing Southern Cross Rally Series will take place this coming weekend on Saturday 18th March in the Vulcan State Forest, near Oberon. Despite the recent heavy rain experienced across the East Coast, the forests around Oberon have seen very little rainfall. The roads are expected to be in excellent condition.

 

The forests around the central service area of Black Springs have a reputation of providing quality rallying, with a subscribed field of 45 AMSAG vehicles indicates that the series is healthy and popular amongst competitors. The stages consist of fast flowing roads connected by tight-apex junctions, with surfaces changing from slippery red clay through to shale-like gravel. In addition, the stages wind in and out of harvested forest areas which provide further challenges as drivers will need to adapt to changeable road conditions.

 

This year’s event has been revamped by road directors Arron Topliff and Peter Batt, in an attempt to break away from the repeat stage format. This means that the event will now be run over 9 daylight stages with 7 individual stage formats. A total competitive distance of nearly 125km’s awaits the 45 crews.

 

One of the main drawcards of the AMSAG Oberon Rally is the relaxed, family-friendly nature of the event. The service park is situated next to the Black Springs Community Hall and is a constant hub of activity with servicing, scoring, catering, camping, showers and toilet facilities all at this location.

 

As is the custom, all AMSAG events run in two categories – Classic and Open, with a wide range of vehicles fronting the start line. Leading the field away will be the Shamrock Motorsport entry of Richie Dalton (Western Sydney) and John Allen (Queensland) in their new Ford Fiesta Prototype. The Open 4wd class has been well subscribed with 20 entries in total headed by Tim Joass (Western Sydney), Peter Neal (Taree), Ian Plenderleith (Bathurst), Jody Mill (Wagga) and Adrian Turnbull (Newcastle)

 

In a delightful mismatch, Adam Casmiri (Western Sydney) has entered a Honda Civic and will look to fend off his the hard-charging Brett Kuhner (Western Sydney) in the high-powered turbo-charged Datsun 1600 for fastest Open 2wd honours.

 

The Classic category at this event consists of a number of competitors looking to start the new season with a win. Doug and Luke Grimes head the field in their Toyota Celica after showing impressive speed on their only AMSAG outing in 2016. Series regulars David Hills/Paul Bennett have entered the immaculate Pipe King Escort are shape as likely challengers in the 17 car strong category.

 

The Open Drivers Champion from last year, Ron Moore (Bathurst) has returned with his son Lachlan co-driving. 2016 event winner Jamie Neale (Western Sydney) will be missing from this round but is expected to join Joe Chapman (Bathurst), Michael Long (Western Sydney) and Chris Giddens (Newcastle) at Round 2 at Rosewood, near Tumut. Also expected to return to the series at Rosewood is the reigning Classic Drivers Champion, Michael Valantine, who has opted to co-drive for son Tim in a new Nissan Silvia this weekend.

 

The Seeded Entry List and Spectator information is available on the Event Page . Competitors interested in upcoming AMSAG events as part of the 2017 Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series can also find information about the club at the website.

 

AMSAG SPREADS ITS WINGS

 

The 2017 Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series has expanded to include six rounds. With two events each to the West, South and North of Sydney, AMSAG hopes to attract new and existing competitors for this exciting new look season.

 

The Pipe King Southern Cross Rally Series begins West of Sydney on March 18 at Oberon, before heading to the South East of the NSW Riverina at Rosewood in May, followed by a 2 day event in the Bega Valley on the June long weekend.

In line with the relaxed nature of the series, there is no registration fee, and all competitors are eligible to score points.

 

AMSAG’s popularity continues to grow in NSW as many competitors choose to align themselves to the long-running series, now in its 22nd year. The regulations have for the most part, have remained unchanged for the past 7 years, with the club resisting the introduction of most limitations, instead allowing the competitors freedom of choice when it comes to safety equipment and vehicle modifications above and beyond the minimum standard.

Safety and vehicle preparation standards are still of paramount importance to AMSAG, with competitors able to enter either the Classic or Open category. AMSAG Classics are naturally-aspirated pre1991 2wd vehicles such as Australian Rallying stalwarts the Datsun 1600 and Ford Escort. The Open category consists of mostly modern vehicles such as 4WD Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru WRX or 2WD Nissan Silvia and Hyundai Excels, however also caters for those vehicles that don’t comply with AMSAG Classic regulations such as Subaru Legacy and Mitsubishi VR4 and also non traditional vehicles such as Turbo Charged Datsun 1600’s.

 

As always, AMSAG competitor and safety information is available at www.amsag.com.au Competitors can enter online for the Oberon Rally via the Event Page, with the entry fee being set at $400.

2016 Pipe King AMSAG Southern Cross Rally Series and new AMSAG Facebook Page announced

A new season approaches and a new look for AMSAG is released. Please go to https://www.facebook.com/AMSAGRallySeries/ to like the page and receive updates moving into the future.

 

We have taken the steps to create a new page due to constraints in reopening the AMSAG Rally Series Facebook Group to an open group. To explain a little further, after the incident involving John Giddings a decision was made to turn the public AMSAG Facebook Group to a closed group, unfortunately we were not aware at the time that we would not be able to simply return it to an open group as we had more than 250 members.

 

Now we could have simply deleted everyone to reopen the group and then re-added everyone, however this would have been a very time consuming and tedious task. Therefore we believe this new page is a much simpler and more effective way of reaching our members and sharing news about the upcoming events and other news concerning AMSAG and the Southern Cross Rally Series.

 

You will still be able to make posts onto the page, as per the group, and we will still be able to effectively and efficiently pass on news and updates to everyone.

 

With this, we wish to announce the calendar for the 2016 Pipe King AMSAG Southern Cross Rally Series.

 

The year will kick off with 2 Non Series events both being Rallysprint events rather than the traditional rallies. These events will not count towards the Pipe King AMSAG Southern Cross Rally Series, however depending upon their popularity, we may look at changing that for 2017.

 

The first event will be a Rallysprint on 27th February to be held around Tathra on the South Coast directed by Pip Barker. And the second Rallysprint will be on 2nd April in the Jenolan area and directed by Jamie Neale. We will have further details about these events as they get closer.

 

For the Pipe King AMSAG Southern Cross Rally Series, the rounds will be as follows:-

 

Round 1 - Oberon Rally - 23rd & 24th April to be directed by Stuart Southam & Richard Montford

 

Round 2 - John Giddings Memorial Rally of Orange - 21st May to be directed by Peter Crich

 

Round 3 - Blacksmiths Inn Rally Johns River - 30th July to be directed by Pacific Rally Club (Stuart Southam & co)

 

Round 4 - Blayney Rally - 27th August to be directed by Peter Crich

 

Round 5 - Bulahdelah Rally - 1st October to be directed by Paul Bramble

 

Round 6 - Bombala Rally - 29th & 30th October (director TBA)

 

Facebook Events have been created on this page for each round, if you could express your interest for each event it would be greatly appreciated, we will share more details about the events as they come up and we have some exciting plans in place that have either not been done for a long time, or never before within AMSAG.

 

2016 is shaping up to be a a great year for AMSAG and we can't wait to get the wheels rolling for the new season.

 

Details regarding the Presentation Night and AGM with also be released shortly.

The list can be found on the Event Page

 

A total field of 54 cars will tackle the event with both the Classic and Open Series to be decided at the event.

 

A ballot will be held at the drivers briefing to determine the running order at the event. There will be 2 ballots held, one for cars 1-5 and then cars 6-10.

 

The Classic Series will be fought out between Leigh Manning and Peter Vlandis both driving Datsun 1600's with Manning leading Vlandis into the final round. On the opposite side of the car, Vlandis' Navigator Mal Sinfield leads Manning's Navigator Logan Waterhouse for the Classic Series Navigator. This will be an interesting battle to watch throughout the event.

 

In the Open Series, it is Neck and Neck between Ron Moore (Mitsubishi EVO 6), Joe Chapman (Subaru WRX) and Bryan Price (Subaru WRX) with added pressure on Moore and Price with their respective Navigators also fighting it out for their share of the silverware.

 

The respective classes in both the Classic and Open Series are also hotly contested meaning the pressure will be on all crews to perform well, add into the mix some competitors who have not contested the whole series but are very capable of sticking it to the front runners and you have what is shaping up to be a cracker of a final round to the 2015 Pipe King AMSAG Southern Cross Series. best of luck to all of the competitors!

Update regarding NSW Rally Rego

From today 22nd July 2015, competitors will be able to apply for Rally Rego through their local RMS Branch, including those in the Sydney Metropolitan Area. This is the same process we have been providing to applicants in non metro areas since the inception of the new scheme.

 

You will still be required to have your paperwork signed off by either AMSAG or CAMS, however now you will be able to take the approved paperwork into your local RMS or Services NSW branch where they will verify the documents, take payment and then forward the paperwork to Richmond RMS for processing. Richmond RMS will then mail the plates back to the branch you provided your paperwork to for you to collect the plates.

 

At this stage Richmond is the only branch who will have a stock of plates, therefore if you need the plates issued on the spot you will still need to attend Richmond in person.

 

However if you are happy with having a short delay in receiving the plates, feel free to use your local branch instead.

 

For those who do not have a local approved certifier to have the inspection completed, we will reviewing our current list shortly so please feel free to provide details of your local scrutineer if you would like them to be considered for approval. Please keep in mind there will be requirements for them to be approved, including being on the current list of AMSAG Approved Scrutineers which can be found on the AMSAG Website.

 

If you have any questions, please feel fre
