New stages planned for 2023!

The organising committee of The Middle of Everywhere Gippsland Rally have scoped some fresh roads. Yet to be approved, but too exciting to keep to ourselves much longer, we have a combo of forestry, shire and private roads planned. The teams competing in the Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship on the Sunday of the event, the 27th of August, will get more kilometres.

There’s almost an extra 20 kilometres of competitive stages and only an extra 7 kilometres of liaison stages.

So, where are these roads coming from? Road Director Bernard Miron has been running and competing in rallies in this region for decades.

“We have extended two of last year’s stages on Sunday, picking the best roads up there, but with some different bits added on to make sure crews are kept honest by the area’s rugged topography! There will be one new stage which includes a much more entertaining spectator point (than last year’s)”.

Maffra & District Car Club’s Boisdale Hillclimb track will host a stage in the morning as teams are on their way to the forest. The track, established in the 1960’s, is a purpose-built gravel Hillclimb circuit to challenge drivers and it’s a complete spectacle! The teams will return to the venue for the EROAD Power Stage where the stage winner will be crowned.”
