The Rally NSW Season Launch will be held at the Bathurst Light Car Club Rooms on Conrod straight in Bathurst for finger food and refreshments at the bar. This will be the first occasion the NSW rally community has had to get together in a social setting for over a year.

Lewis Bates, who drives for the Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia Team, will speak at the event and share his insights into rallying and motorsport.

The event will also be used to launch the NSW Rally Championship, NSW Clubman Rally Series, NSW Hyundai Rally Series, the East Coast Classic Rally Series and the new S1 Rallysprint Series.

The NSW Rally Panel extends an invitation to anyone interested in rallying in NSW to attend this free event. To reserve a place, send an email to testdaysecretary@rallynsw.com.au. Spaces are limited due to Covid venue restrictions, so get in early to avoid disappointment.
