CANCELLED – VRC 6 Akademos

16 October 2022

Sorry folks, due the rainfall in the area already this morning and the amount of flooding in the area, the Akademos Rally this weekend is CANCELLED.
The forester has withdrawn permission for the event, which is fair enough, considering all rivers in the area are already in flood and several main roads in the area are already closed, putting all the local emergency services into action to assist the residents. Putting an additional couple of hundred rallyists into the region hardly seems like the right thing to do.
Thanks everyone for their support and we look forward to seeing everyone at the remaining events for 2022.
On behalf of Natasha Swan, Peter Otzen, Darren Mckemmish and the rest of the organising team from Melbourne University Car Club.


2022 Akademos Supp Regs

This Event is Round 6 of the 2022 TILL HINO Victorian Rally Championship and will be held on Sunday 16 October 2022. Based at Alexandra in Victoria. It will be a State Championship Special Stage event, with a shorter multi-club Special Stage event alongside.  The roads of the Murrindindi and Rubicon Forest area are generally smooth and wide and easy on the car (but not always tyres).
It will be conducted over one division and two heats made up of approximately 135 km of competitive and 130 km of transport sections. There will be one service break at Alexandra where catering and amenities will be available.

The Event (and Heat 1) will commence in Alexandra followed by approximately 68 competitive km finishing with a service break back in Alexandra. Heat 2 will be approximately 68 competitive km again finishing back in Alexandra which will also be the finish of the Event.

AKADEMOS finishes at the Alexandra Racing Club for the post event social function and a champagne presentation to the provisional winners.

There are a number of accommodation venues within a short distance of the Event start/finish/headquarters
providing a range of accommodation styles to suit varying requirements.  I would like to thank the Championship sponsor TILL HINO ongoing support. Please support them when you need a product they supply.

I would like to acknowledge and thank all the people and organisations that have contributed to making
AKADEMOS possible including the Murrundindi Shire Council, Alexandra Police, Buxton CFA, the Department of
Environment, Land, Water & Planning, and the many volunteers from inside and outside the Melbourne University Car Club who are giving up their time to help us in the forest.
