KENNARDS HIRE RALLY AUSTRALIA

several venues in Coffs, Bellingen and Nambucca regions

Thursday, November 16, 2017 12:00pm to Sunday, November 19, 2017 6:00pm

The beautiful Coffs Coast of New South Wales will play host once again to Rally Australia, the annual Australian leg of the FIA World Rally Championship. Only Australia's second world championship event, alongside Formula 1, this epic competition features some of the world's greatest drivers battling for supremacy in the toughest and most varied conditions on the planet. Multi-million dollar "factory" teams from Germany, France, Korea and Britain, plus the cream of privateer outfits from around the world and Australia tackle open-country and forestry stages across 300 kilometres in spectacular sub-tropical scenery.

Full-catered viewing points, easily accessible from Coffs Harbour and the surrounding region, will be available around the stages. Don't miss the Super Special Stage which runs on Friday and Saturday afternoons around the beautiful Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshore. The Super Special Stage this year will also play host to Matt Mingay's Hotwheels Jump Truck. There will be plenty of entertainment to keep the kids amused. Sunday at Wedding Bells will also be a family friendly spectator point with lots of entertainment and activities for the kids.

The Nambucca Valley will be featured on Saturday! Here the spectator information for the Saturday:
