WRC A FULL 2017
FROM HOME VICTORY TO DOWN UNDER FINALE FOR DMACK.
From Home Victory To Down Under Finale For DMACK
• First event after debut WRC victory.
• Final round in DMACK’s most successful season.
• Demanding event with diverse surfaces and conditions.
10 November 2017
Just two weeks after winning its debut FIA World Rally Championship event on home soil at Wales Rally GB, DMACK will cross to the other side of the world for some Aussie action at Kennards Hire Rally Australia next week.
The final round of the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship will bring DMACK’s most successful season to a close, with a tough event based around Coffs Harbour – halfway between Sydney and Brisbane.
The event is a demanding way to round off the championship with a varied mix of high-speed gravel roads on offer. After taking their debut victory last time out at Wales Rally GB, Elfyn Evans and Dan Barritt will depend on DMACK’s rally-winning DMG+22 gravel tyres to master the challenge down-under.
The nominated hard GH34 compound will be the main choice, and a maximum of 32 are permitted, while the soft GS84 is also available as the second choice.
Most of the action takes place over public, shire roads but some of the stages venture through thick forests and jungle areas – where dust can hang in the air. The dense rainforests can block sunlight, creating tough driving conditions for competitors.
Another of Rally Australia’s traditional challenges is the huge Nambucca stage at almost 49km in length. It’s run on Saturday morning before being split in two for a repeat in the afternoon.
The event, famed for its stunning coastal vistas, ventures north for a three-stage loop on Friday before the popular Saturday stages around Bowraville to the south. Then it’s back north again on Sunday for the final stages of the WRC season.
Dick Cormack, DMACK managing director, said: “Rally GB was the highlight of our seven years in WRC and a huge achievement for DMACK. We are looking forward now to Australia which is set to be a really demanding event to finish off the season – its many surfaces and stage characteristics will make it a tough rally.”
Elfyn Evans, DMACK WRC driver, said: “We had an historic result on our home rally just a few weeks ago and achieved one of our main targets for the season. We missed Australia last year so it will be important to cover the miles, get the experience this year and work on our pacenotes.”
