The Bega Valley Rally Returns – Entries now open

 

The Bega Valley Rally is one of the most iconic, well patronised, and most loved events on the east coast of Australia.

 

With a history dating back to the 1960’s when it was known as the “Southern Mountains Rally”, the Bega Valley Rally has held a strong position on local, state, and national calendars. After a five year hiatus, the newly formed “Sapphire Coast Sporting Car Club Inc. (SCSCC)” is proud to be bringing the event back to the 2017 rallying calendar.

 

The SCSCC is pleased to announce that the event this year will be Round 3 of the AMSAG Southern Cross Pipe King Rally Series.

 

As an organising team, we’ve been very conscious of creating an event that offers competitors maximum value for money.

 

We have selected some of the very best stages the Bega Shire has to offer, including Upper Cobargo, Buckajo, and Ben Boyd Roads, plus a few new ones to challenge your skills. On top of this to make things a little more interesting we have included a few night stages on the Saturday evening, and some Sunday morning wake up calls will complete the 180km’s of competitive stages available.

 

With local community consideration in mind, we will run the shire stages in Bega early on Saturday afternoon, and then move the event via transport stages down to Boydtown, just south of Eden. This area will also be the service park for the remainder of the event, and after a meal break for crews we will run the planned night stages. Sunday will see the event restart from Boydtown, to complete several more stages revisiting the service park during the morning before the 1st car finishes around 11.30am. A presentation ceremony will follow at the Seahorse Inn Boydtown with a BBQ luncheon rounding off the weekend.

 

The organising committee have been thrilled by the support we’ve had from so many people. Be it the local community, business leaders, the rallying community, car club members, or local government, the positive vibrations around this event are infectious.

 

In particular, we would like to acknowledge and thank Robert and Bec Motbey the proprietors of R & B Auto/Kumho Tyres and Momsen Motors, for generously agreeing to be our naming rights sponsor of the Bega Valley Rally for the next three years.

 

We would also like to thank the Bega Valley Shire Council and its councillors for getting behind the event and allowing us to utilise some of their outstanding roads. They have had the foresight to recognise the benefits that promoting sporting and social events within our shire, and we applaud that vision. Members of the Forestry Corporation NSW and the NSW Police have been equally helpful and supportive to the organisers.

 

We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the event on the June long weekend, and hope that not only will you have a great and safe event, but that by you entering and giving us feedback we will be able to continue to deliver the Bega Valley Rally to you in ever improving formats for many years to come.

Competitor Advice, Seeded Start List and Spectator Instructions now available for the 2017 Rosewood Rally.

 

The second round of the PipeKing Southern Cross Rally Series will take place on Saturday 13th May in the Carabost State Forest, near Tumbarumba. The event is significant in that it signals a return to competitive rallying in the Carabost State Forest after a 23 year lay-off.

 

The Riverina has a proud history in rallying with iconic competitors such as Kevin Roben, David West, Louie Doon, Ron Richardson, Jon Parker, Marty Beckton and of course, George Fury all originating from the area.

 

The forests around the central service park at Rosewood will provide a challenging and technical event. Shire-like flowing roads are connected by tight-apex junctions that are often hard to see. The road surface regularly changes from slippery red clay through to hard-packed gravel as the mountainous stages wind in and out of harvested forest areas.

 

Whilst the AMSAG entry list may not contain the likes of Possum Bourne, Ed Ordynski, Michael Guest or Rob Herridge at the front of the field, the Rosewood Rally has attracted a mix of new and experienced competitors across both the Open and Classic categories.

 

As is the AMSAG custom, the winners of the last rally will lead the field away, and this honour falls to the Shamrock Motorsport entry of Tim and Peter Joass (Western Sydney) in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo2. After finishing on the podium at Oberon both Ian Plenderleith / Mel McMinn – Evo2 (Bathurst) and Adrian Turnbull/Kristy Turnbull – WRX (Newcastle) will be looking to mount a series challenge. Local hopes will be headed by the super-fast Jody Mill/Tommi Flegl in their Lancer Evo2. Chris Jacques/Hugh Taylor (Sydney) cannot be discounted in the Evo9, along with the ultra-experienced crew of John Fraser/John Paine (Orange) in their Evo4. Russell Winks (Canberra) will be looking to come to grips with the ex-Orders/Tyler Evo5 and has the experience to cause an upset in what will be a demanding rally.

 

The Classic category is headed by Tom Dermody/Eoin Moynihan (Queensland) after showing impressive speed in every outing in 2017. The Escort RS1800 of Dermody is likely to emerge as an outright contender, with another Escort, that of Oberon placegetters PJ O’Keefe/Skelton (Sydney) appearing to be the closest challengers. To the dismay of the Datsun faithful, a pair of Volvo’s are best positioned to challenge the recent Ford domination, with PeterVlandis/Tony Jordan and Peter Ewing/Anna Ritson looking to fight for Classic podium positions. The BMW’s driven by Kim Boyd and Keith McIlroy also in the mix.

 

In Open, Ross Plunkett (Gosford) has entered the VR4 for his second rally in many years. An impressive drive at Oberon saw Ross challenging for the top 10, and the consistency of Bathurst father-son pairing Mark and Harrison Hudson is expected to net a strong series result in their Subaru WRX.

 

The most excited competitor must surely be Jay Quirk who has entered his Lancer Evo2. Having grown up in and around the sport, Jay now has the opportunity to rally the Carabost.

 

A Competitor Advice, Spectator information and the Seeded Start List are now available via the AMSAG Website 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.

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. Events on the Mid-North Coast at Bulahdelah and Johns River fill out the back end of the season, with a second event West of Sydney at Orange in August.

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
