In less than a week, the Lazer Rally of the Bay has had a flood of entries with almost 50 teams signed up for the August 13th event.
“What a great response”, said Event Manager, Nigel Bland. “It’s really encouraging to see so many entries coming in so quickly.”
“It’s a great looking field, with Richie Dalton entered in his Toyota Yaris and Former Australian Rally Champion, Nathan Quinn in his Hyundai i20”, Bland continued.
“Peter Dimmock will also be running his Toyota Yaris, so we’ll have a great contingent of modern rally cars in the forest, as well as plenty of classic rally cars like the crowd favourite Mk2 Ford Escort of Sean McAloon”, Bland concluded.
Several new partners have also joined to be part of the Lazer Rally of the Bay, with Cavallino Motorsport and Simpson Race Products joining with the other partners for the 2022 edition of this classic event.
“With a full field of 70 cars expected, it’s difficult to predict a winner,” said Club President, Brett Middleton. “There are potentially a dozen drivers that could easily win, and I can’t wait to see the battle develop for the top step of the podium”.
“The local Eurobodalla community are looking forward to the positive economic impact, with significant spending generated for the Batemans Bay area”, Middleton concluded.
The Lazer Rally of the Bay is set to take place on Saturday the 13th of August in the forests surrounding Batemans Bay on the NSW south coast. The rally cars will be flagged away from Corrigan’s Beach Reserve in Batehaven. Lazer High Performance Lighting is the naming rights partner.
The 2022 Lazer Rally of the Bay is a round of the NSW Rally Championship and East Coast Classic Rally Series (ECCRS), and also incorporates the NSW Clubman and NSW Hyundai Series.
