Sun, Sea and Rally Cars, can the weekend get any better than this? Warm, dusty days at the special stages around the local areas of Coffs Harbour were home to the best of the best in the 'rally world' last weekend travelling here from all over the globe.
Fun and excitement comes in car load here, enjoying shoulder to shoulder viewing and pushed as close to the noise of the 1600cc turbo engines as we could, this really was a weekend for those who like there cars fast and dirty!
Taking photos and spinning around to shield from the dust kicked up by the cars, this is as good as it gets for the fans; front row seats to the best show in town.
The evenings were spent at the beach front of Coffs Harbour, though unrecognisable to usual standards, as it was the location of the evening super special stages. By night with the moonlight reflecting on the ocean and the waves crashing at the side of the track the viewing areas are filled to the brim with locals and fans from as far a field as Finland. The excitement turns up a notch now as you see your favourite WRC, PWRC and Classic Car drivers show why they are watched by the world in amazement over the control they have of these cars. Including the like of Sebastian Loeb, Ken Block and Haydon Paddon.
Expected back in 2013 (fingers crossed) this truly is an awesome event not to be missed!
