One of the exciting changes to the 2019 Alpine Rally of East Gippsland is to be the “Koni Super Special Stage”, to be held at Bairnsdale Speedway on the Friday 29th November.

It will be the last stage of the day so all the service crews and most officials will be able to get there and see the action up close.

Prior to seeing the competitors, spectators will be entertained by John Hadden’s famous IYK000 Escort, Doug Fernie’s awesome Audi Quattro and possibly a very special Hyundai Accent WRC car. The speedway club will also be doing demo laps in some of their exciting cars as well as providing food from their canteen.

Panel 3

Calling for officials…

The Alpine Rally of East Gippsland needs your help as an event official. Last event we used over 350 officials to make the event run and this year we will need even more.

There are all sorts of jobs available and some of them don’t require any previous experience at all.

We are still specifically looking for people who can fill the Stage Commander but everything is open including Road Closures, Spectator Point roles, Service Park roles.

If you can fill one of those crucial roles please contact our Officials Secretary Dee Knight on or CoC Owen Polanski on for a job description.

And remember it’s easy to volunteer to be an official by just going to the officials page and filling out the Officials Registration Form.
