Challenge Bathurst

When: 28 November-1 December
Where: Mount Panorama - Bathurst

The annual performance-driving event features more than 400 competitors and includes a two-day supersprint and a two-day modern regularity at the famous Mount Panorama in Bathurst.

An impressive mix of drivers are entered in the event with Garth Tander and Shane van Gisbergen headlining the supersprint field as drivers get more than three hours of track time.

For the regularity side of things, starting on Saturday, the drivers get up to six 20-minute sessions for which they try to gain as many points across the weekend. 

The Challenge begins today with the two-day supersprint before the regularity takes over on Saturday.

Alpine Rally of East Gippsland

When: 29 November-1 December
Where: Lakes Entrance

One of the biggest rally events in the country is happening this weekend with more than 100 crews from around the country entered in the bi-annual event to take place around Lakes Entrance.

While this edition will be shortened due to bushfires occurring in the nearby countryside, the event will still run some of the popular stages which have been on show for decades, as well as hosting some of the country’s biggest rally stars.

Headlining the field is 2017 CAMS Australian Rally Champion Nathan Quinn and 2017 Alpine Rally winner Ben Barker who is back to defend his well-deserved title.

Starting on Friday night, there are various spectator points throughout the 13 stages covering more than 200 competitive kilometres.
