VCRS 7 Victoria Cross Rally

5 November 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6 November 2022 @ 3:00 am AEDT


The Victoria Cross Rally is to be held this Saturday in the Mt Disappointment State Forest.

We’ve been hit with more than the usual number of officials becoming unavailable at the last minute and urgently need more for road closures and controls. The meet times are either 5pm or 5.15pm in Broadford, less than an hour north of Melbourne and the event will be finished by 1am.

If you are available, please email our Officials Co-ordinator, Richard Elphick, at elph51 at hotmail dot com or the Clerk of Course at david at jandmck dot com

24 October 2022

Forest Fire Management Victoria has today advised that a permit will be issued for the Victoria Cross
Rally, albeit with substantial reductions in the available roads due to damage from recent rain
events. So rather than cancel, we’ll do the best we can to reorganise the event at short notice.
The Victoria Cross will now comprise three special stages, each run twice, for a total competitive
distance of 52.7km. Total event distance will be 159.4km. The start, service location and finish
remain at the State Motorcycle Complex, Broadford with the first car starting at 7.45pm. Spectators
can view the action at No 1 Camp from 10.50pm.
Entries closed on Monday, 31 October
In addition to being rounds of the Victorian Club Rally Series, the HRA Rally Championship and, for
the Regularity component, the HRA Standard Car Class Series, the event is open to grade A and other
competitors who may wish to compete prior to the Alpine Rally, subject to the field not being fully
subscribed by crews qualifying for these championships.
For event documents, refer to the VicRally and HRA websites.

Supplementary Regulations are now available for the Victoria Cross Rally on 5 November and entries have opened. Entry is via the Motorsport Australia portal (portal.motorsport.org.au). There are separate entry forms for the Special Stage Rally (VCRS & HRA Rally Championship) and the Regularity. The entry system doesn’t yet fully cater for the differing classes used in rallying. You can nominate your class under “Activities”. Alternatively, send your class information by email to the Entries Secretary. We look forward to your entry. The early bird discount applies up to the official close of entries. Entries after that date, if accepted, won’t get the early bird discount.


Date: 5 November 2022

Time: 5pm- 3am

Venue: State Motorcycle Complex, Broadford and Mt Disappointment State Forest

Organiser: Historic Rally Association Inc.

The Victoria Cross Rally will comprise two events to be held on the evening of Saturday 5 November. A Special Stage rally will be the 7th and final round of the 2022 VCRS and a Regularity Rally will be a round of the HRA Standard Car Class series.

The start, service break and finish will be at the State Motorcycle Complex, Broadford. The course will comprise a total of 117km of competition over 5 special stages, each run twice, and 154km liaison. The event will be fully route charted and all competition will be at night – the high rate of public use of the forest makes daylight running impractical. The first car will leave the start at 7.45pm and finish at around 1am.

While we have used the best available roads in the forest, not all are “rally highways”. Of the five stages, three will predominantly be excellent roads. The other two stages will use lesser roads, including unmade tracks with an uneven surface.

If the field limit isn’t filled by VCRS and Regularity competitors, the Special Stage Rally will also be open to Grade A competitors – an opportunity for a run before the Alpine. Grade A competitors won’t be eligible for any event awards or VCRS placings or points.

The Regularity is not restricted to HRA Standard Car Class competitors and is an excellent opportunity for beginners to try a rally style event, as rollover protection and a HANS style device aren’t compulsory.

Being so close to Melbourne is a bonus. So put the Victoria Cross Rally in your diary now.
