Western Australia's round of the Australian Rally Championship attracts Australia's best cars and drivers, including the latest top specification rally cars to classic rally cars.
The weekend is a Motor Sport Extravaganza the event starts on one of the old Rally Australia stages near Harvey before moving towards Collie to compete on arguably some of the best rally roads in WA around Wellington Dam.
The Service Park will be in the centre of Collie and spectating is absolutely Free!!
There are ample opportunities for spectators to enjoy the action out in the forests as well as in the Collie Service Park where crews can be seen frantically maintaining their cars.
A Rally differs from other forms of motorsport in that the cars do not compete on a "circuit" instead they compete on closed road sections that they have only driven over twice in order to make their "pace notes", a short-hand system of symbols that enables the Co-Driver to describe to the Driver what hides around the next corner or over that blind crest.
There is a wide variety of cars competing including Classics like Ford Escorts and Datsun 1600’s to more modern turbocharged Mitsubishi Evos, Subaru WRXs and even a number of International spec “R5” cars.
The Forest Rally is proudly sponsored by Make Smoking History and is a smoke free event.
