New hub for Rally Australia

Rally Australia will have a new service park in 2014 in Coffs Harbour
Organisers of Rally Australia have announced that the service park for the event will move to a new location when it takes place in September.

The service park will be based at a new location at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium, which will be open for free entry by the public, who also will be able to enjoy daily and nightly entertainment.

Work is also ongoing to secure agreements that will allow a new Super Special stage to be created in Coffs Harbour to form part of the event schedule.

“The C.ex Coffs International Stadium Service Park will be only three kilometres from our previous location, but will provide many advantages,” event manager David Catchpole said. “We will have a greater hard stand area to accommodate the rally cars in all weathers, the site layout will be more effective, our set-up costs will be significantly less and access via the Pacific Highway for spectators, competitors and media heading to the Special Stages will be much easier.

“This important enhancement to the event design will go hand-in-hand with a very exciting new course for the Super Special Stage in Coffs Harbour, which we will announce as soon as all planning and agreements are finalised.

“I'm pleased to add that our agreement with the Coffs Harbour City Council to use C.ex Coffs International Stadium will be for two years. Rally Australia is grateful to the council led by Mayor Denise Knight for this new agreement and for the strong partnership, along with the New South Wales Government, we have in bringing one of the world's greatest motorsport spectacles to the Coffs Coast.”
