A number of people have contacted us to let us know that there are a number of bushfires in the area of the Alpine Rally of East Gippsland.
We have been working very closely with DELWP Forest Fire staff over the last week to monitor the threat and ensure that we can run our event safely for all involved.
At this point there is only a couple of small fires that will potentially have some impact on a small portion of the route and these fires are under control and not getting any worse. However we are well prepared for and accept the fact that there will have to be some minor route alterations implemented over the coming few days.
We really wish this was not the case but it is a reality of using the Australian bush and we just have to ensure that we get to run as much of this awesome event as possible and do it in the safest possible way for everyone involved.
