Entries OPEN!

Spread over two days, Australia’s best rally crews will tackle 182 competitive kilometres across 16 special stages, with eight to take place on each day of action and the EROAD Power Stage to wrap up the rally on the Sunday.

Saturday will be the larger day of the two, with just under 121 competitive kilometres being run, while Sunday will run the remaining 60 kilometres.

Joining the ARC for Saturday’s eight stages will be the Till’s US Pickups Motorsport Australia Victorian Rally Championship, which is holding the third round of its 2023 season.

Interested crews have until Friday 11 August to register for the event, with entries to be completed via the Motorsport Australia Member Portal.

Clerk of Course Andrew Roseman is looking forward to welcoming the ARC back for another year.

“The event is tracking along nicely and we’re really happy with how it’s progressing,” Roseman said.

“The roads are in excellent condition and we have some different stages for the ARC on the Sunday, which is exciting – especially with our new EROAD Power Stage.

“The interest in the ARC this year has been incredible as there have been healthy fields in every single event, so hopefully that rolls into a bigger event here in Victoria.

“After what will be a special Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland, we look forward to seeing the best rally crews in Australia here in Gippsland.”

    When is the Motorsport Australia Rally fraternity going to use the 20th (let alone the 21st) century communication devices and maybe attract a bigger following by making some effort to keep the spectators up to date on competitor times and placings throughout the event? Not everyone is aware of Rallysafe. Judging by my experience on Sunday at the Gympie ARC event, spectator attraction (apart from the food tent) hasn’t improved since the 60’s.
    Of the hundreds of dust swallowing punters at the only spectating area, there was only one local bloke who appeared to be getting intermittent phone reception thereby relaying the results to those of us who bothered to approach him.
    There appeared to be no shortage of volunteers, some using hand held two way radios who could have communicated, when available, some sort of update to the masses stuck out in the bush from 8am until 3pm. It’s not rocket science. It might just increase their interest in rallying.
    Sure, the route to the site was outlined on the website but was a little misleading even to an experienced navigator. A temporary sign on the odd fork in the confusing route may have helped. When mentioning this to a local, his response was “they don’t want to give protesters any help finding and disrupting the event”. Well, I’ll be buggered!
    Whilst the dust was something else, you couldn’t help but enjoy the spectacle. Well done Gympie.

      Hi Richard. I recommend contacting someone from that rally and Motorsport Australia to provide your feedback. We’re a totally separate event.
