Fluffy Duck Touring Assembly

Where: Lower Hunter
When: 9 March

The Australian Historic Rally Group are back with another Fluffy Duck Touring Assembly with 30 competitors registered to take on the popular navigational rally.

Combining a mixture of dirt and tarmac roads, competitors will have the choice as to what surface they compete on, with the only major rule being to complete the tasks given and of course, go in the right direction.

More than 160 completive kilometres will be covered across two sections, with the event to conclude at the Lions Club Lookout in Tea Gardens, New South Wales so drivers are able to attend the Annual Motorfest.

The Fluffy Duck Touring Assembly is the perfect multi-club level event for historic rally enthusiasts with a variety of roads that can be enjoyed by all. Entries are open until 9am local time on Saturday morning .

Rainbow Rises 240

Where: Rainbow - Victoria
When: 10 March

The CAMS Victorian Off Road Championship is one of two state events this weekend and with 23 cars already entered into the event, it’s set to be an entertaining weekend of off road racing.

Based at the same location as the BFGoodrich CAMS Australian Off Road Championship’s third round in August, VORC drivers will get 29 laps at the 8.7km course, tackling more than 240 competitive kilometres across three sections.

While 2018 champion Alan Dixon is yet to confirm his entry, the dynamic entry list features some of the state’s big players including Justin Watt, Eric Schlifener and Nigel Pendlebury. The list also features four drivers from interstate with two from South Australia and two from New South Wales.

With this being the only event held at Rainbow ahead of the August’s national event, off road fans are encouraged to make their way down to the country town to get a piece of the action.
