Welcome to the 2023 Midstate Freight Bathurst Rally


The North Shore Sporting Car Club is excited to present the 2023 Midstate Freight Bathurst Rally on the 23rd September 2023.

The rally will be a Road Book event and will be a round of the following Rally NSW series:

  • NSW Rally Championship (NSWRC)
  • East Coast Classic Rally Series – 2WD (ECCRS 2WD)
  • East Coast Classic Rally Series – 4WD (ECCRS 4WD)
  • NSW Clubman Rally Series (CRS)
  • NSW Hyundai Rally Series (HRS)

The event will take place in the picturesque city of Bathurst, known for its rich motorsport heritage and the legendary Mount Panorama Circuit as well as a long history of hosting both NSW and Australian Championship rallies over many decades.

A unique feature of the event will be the Service Park that will be located right in the centre of the city in Russell St alongside the Bathurst Regional Council Offices and the beautiful Bathurst War Memorial Park, allowing locals to get up close to all the service action bringing the colour and spectacle of the rally to the centre of town.

Competitors are set to take on a challenging course around Bathurst and Blayney. The rally will weave through some stunning countryside, offering a unique blend of great shire gravel and technical forestry roads. Competitors will be able to showcase their skills, teamwork, and strategic nous on some varied and challenging roads. Spectators will also have the chance to witness the fierce competition and the intense battles at several spectator points throughout the event.

The Bathurst Rally promises to be an extraordinary event celebrating the spirit of motorsport, camaraderie, and the thrill of speed in a controlled environment. Whether you’re a passionate fan, a rally aficionado, or simply looking for an unforgettable experience, this rally is not to be missed.  Join us on the 23rd of September for an exhilarating adventure in the iconic Bathurst region.
