New date and New Naming Rights Partner for the Rally of the Bay

This Page will be updated soon with all the 2022 details.

Make sure you follow the Rally of the Bay on Facebook and Instagram.

New Event Date for 2022: 13th August

Planning for the 2022 Lazer Rally of the Bay is underway. As we get closer to the event, you’ll be able to find everything you need from documentation to media releases, here on the website. Need to find us quickly? Just remember that rallyofthebay.com.au will bring you straight to this page!

Event Info

There has been some extreme weather across the state over the past 12 months and this has seen a number of event cancellations due to the condition of forestry and shire roads. The Batemans Bay area has also suffered from these weather events and some of the traditional roads that are used for the event are not in any fit condition to be used in 2022. But don’t despair!! The team has been out in the forest scouting for new roads and we think you’ll like what we have found.

In 2022, there’ll be two separate events. The Bay Stages and Bay Ramble. Unfortunately, due to the road selection, there’ll be no Bay Meander Introductory Rally this year.
