Action & Drama at the 2016 Karri Rally

The second rally in this year’s 2016 Onslow Contracting WA Rally Championship again took us south just three weeks after the Quit Forest Rally. A direct replacement for the Donnelly Rally, the Trade Hire Karri Rally was run out of Manjimup and to say the least, we had to work very hard to get all…

The 2015 RallyWA presentation night was held in late January on what would normally have been a warm evening.

The Rally Action 2015 Season

It wasn’t until I sat down a few days ago to put together a highlights reel that I realised what we’d achieved during 2015. We had a phenomenal season that spanned ten months. Starting in February with a very dusty Motorkhana we got through this program: Competed in all six of the State Championship rallies…

Rally Action at the 2015 Carrington’s Traffic Services Safari Rally

The 2015 Carrington’s Safari Rally should have been a ripper for the Rally Action team. Five of our cars, 130km of competition and eight special stages.

The Rally Action team at the 2015 Lewana Stages Rally

How did our trek to the Lewana stages rally go in late July? 20% is the answer. What do we mean by 20%? Well, of the 5 cars in our team, only 1 finished. This may seem like disappointing news, however it’s not! We took the trek from Perth to Kirup near the end of…

The Rally Action team at the 2015 Experts Cup

Last weekend we trekked south to the coal mining town of Collie for round 3 of the State Rally Championship, the Experts Cup Rally. On paper, the event was similar to 2013, with a format of three stages run three times for State and twice for Clubman. The normally hard packed roads around Wellington Dam hold…

2015 Donnelly Rally

To say that the 2015 Donnelly Rally didn’t go to plan would be the most massive understatement of the year. What is normally a popular rally through the picturesque tall timber forests nearby to Bridgetown ended in the most tragic circumstances. During the fifth stage of the rally an incident with a competing car resulted in…
