This fantastic multi-stage rally includes two vast 38km stages, with a total competitive distance of 320km.
The multi-stage rally consists of twenty stages, with short liaison distances in between to save fuel and tyres and prevent fatigue. The short liaisons and tightly-packed field ensure a full day’s racing each leg and promises great value for money.
The Snowy River Sprint is based in the holiday hub of Lakes Entrance. As a water-front town, Lakes Entrance is a very popular all year-round holiday destination, including during winter months when the climate is often a few degrees warmer than Melbourne.
With accommodation varying from budget to 4 star and with great restaurants, the Snowy River Sprint is a complete Tarmac Rally experience.
ROUND 1 - SNOWY RIVER SPRINT
ROUND 2 - GREAT TARMAC RALLY
Great Tarmac Rally debuted in 2012 and was a huge success, with many competitors describing its 240 competitive kilometres as some of the most challenging they have ever seen.
Starting in Marysville, the Great Tarmac Rally travels through Camberville and Cumberland Juction in a stage many consider the highlight of any Rally in Victoria, the Reefton Spur. With a 95% corner ratio along its 37km length, the road follows ridge-crests which look out over The Upper Yarra Catchment Basin, surrounded by alpine forest, although you are likely to be too busy to catch more than a glimpse of it.
ROUND 3 - MT BAW BAW SPRINT
The Mt. Baw Baw Sprint promises some fantastic features that no other events can currently match. The Sprint changed from its single-stage hill climb format to a multi-stage event in 2013, and was praised for its long challenging stages both up and down the mountain and surrounds.
The event will include, as per the Event Schedule, stages and a total distance of approximately 210 competitive kilometres and an overall event length of approximately 380km.
The competition is open to both Modern and Classic cars, with a hero award for the fastest run up the Baw Baw road.
The mountain is only a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, making it the Victorian capital’s most accessible ski mountain – with the steepest driveway. The fantastic facilities and on-site accommodation at Mt. Baw Baw will suit all tastes and budgets. The Sprint Bar, which is open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, will ensure the rally is a truly social event.
ROUND 4 - LAKE MOUNTAIN SPRINT
The Lake Mountain Sprint will have teams taking on the climbing forest road from the base of Marysville all the way to the Lake Mountain summit on day one, then onto the Cumberland Junction on day two.
The Lake Mountain Sprint will be centred at the summit of the mountain, with Rally HQ and service park with documentation and scrutineering at the Marysville Community Club. The official dinner will be held on the Saturday night in Marysville, with a presentation function to be held shortly after the last run on Sunday, the post-race celebrations continuing well into the night after the presentation!
