Organisers

Organisation of a rally takes months of planning and liaison with various external organisations such as Motorsport Australia, Forestry bodies, local councils and state road authorities (Vic Roads), and emergency services (Police, Fire and Ambulance). Requirements are outlined in the Victorian Rally Bulletin Part B in relation to organisational planning requirements, procedures for special conditions, the minimum requirements for all road events as well as special conditions that may applied depending on the type of rally you are running.

Useful Information and requirements are also available below.

Event Applications

Instructions for event applications can be accessed at: https://vicrally.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/2023-Rally-Event-Application-Instructions.pdf

All 2023 event applications are to be made via the online form at https://forms.office.com/r/YHyBDzjUWk

 Each year’s calendar is subject to a consultative process with the DELWP, applications for ALL the next year’s events generally close on 31st August of the current year.

Events wishing to be included in the VRC or VCRS series for the following year must seek approval from the relevant management committee prior to submitting their event application to the Victorian Rally Panel.

Fully route charted events may only be conducted by Clerks of Course who hold a Gold, Silver or Bronze Event Command license.

No applications will be accepted after the 31st August closing date, except for “Club” events which do not impact on other calendared events, provided they have the prior approval from the relevant authorities.

Road event application forms along with a map marked with the forest areas your event wishes to use must be received by that date.

The map is available on the DELWP website and is called the Forest Online Explorer Map.  It is available at the link: https://mapshare.vic.gov.au/mapsharevic/

No event promoter, be they a club or private organisation, will be granted a permit to conduct an event in Victoria if they have monies owing to Motorsport Australia or Motorsport Australia administered funds, owners of roads damaged during the course of events, and/or prizes or prize-monies owed to competitors from previous events.

Area Coordinators

Clerks of Course must ensure the respective Area Co-ordinator countersigns all correspondence to the various authorities. Final route instructions must be lodged with the Area Co-ordinator prior to the event.

Daylesford and Mt Disappointment are no longer available from 1st June to 30th September.
