Welcome

Supplementary Regulations have been released for what will be a joint round of the 2018 MTA (Motor Traders of NSW) NSW Rally Championship, as well as the Focus on Furniture and Bedding Victorian Rally Championship. The incorporated Mitta Masters for classic cars and competitors returns this year also as a round of the fledgling East Coast Classic Rally Series. The recently completed course check reported that the usually narrow, twisting, ducking and diving old style mountain logging roads are in unusually excellent condition following a recent grading program.  The superb views of Victorian peaks remain for co-drivers to enjoy and drivers to occasionally glance at. The unique features of the Mitta event are all still there including the amazing service park on the golf course, modern Rally Base with excellent local catering, long no repeat mountain stages, results final on the day, wrapped up with presentation that night in the fantastic Mitta Pub.  The bus from Dartmouth will operate again as well. ​ The Mitta Mountain Rally Organising Team wishes competitors well this weekend tackling the Caves Classic, Round 1 of the NSWRC and the Ada River Rally, Round 2 of the VRC, and hopes that all are in a position to submit their early bird entries by 8 pm Monday 16 April.
