The LightForce Rally SA team is finalising a 350 competitive km event in a relatively compact loop, based in the Hallett/Burra area, with long special stages on bulletproof roads – all with full special stage set-up and infrastructure.

It is planned for 2/3/4 June 2017, and will run on just the Saturday and Sunday. The event will be for Classic cars, an all comers category, and also be a round of the SARC on the Saturday

Senior competitors have talked of getting some adventure and challenge back into rallying – this will provide that in spades
