Now that the Course Check is complete, and the course is locked in, we can finally give you some more details! The 2017 Sunraysia Safari Rally will have 16 competitive stages, with a competitive distance of just over 1230kms. The event length is just over 2375 kms in total (including transport sections). We have held to our promise for the moto\quad competitors of a maximum distance between refuels at 150kms, and on several occasions that 150kms will be at competitive speeds, so make sure you have enough range in your tank to run flat out for 150kms!
Servicing will be limited to one "lunch time" service, so service crews have limited distance to travel, and it will all be on fairly good shire roads, the vast majority being bitumen. We'll provide a full fuel matrix shortly to competitors, so you can start to plan what you're going to need.
The actual course design is something I'm very proud of; we've worked long and hard to bring you the best possible stages we could put together. It's a great mix of Driver's roads, with some technical sections in between to test your navigation! It's by no means a "car breaker", but by the same token you'll need to treat the tracks with respect, or they might bite back! It's designed to entertain current competitors, as well as get new competitors addicted to Cross Country Rallying! Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating as they say, so the only way you'll know for sure is to get your entry in, and be on the start line on August 16!
