AGL RALLY SA - Rally of the Heartland

1st 2nd and 3rd June 2018

The Rally SA team had a lot of feedback about the 2017 event, and so we are delighted to announce that the Rally of the Heartland will return in 2018 - with a brand new exciting naming rights sponsor, AGL Energy, and featuring a world first - the world's longest windfarm stage of approximately 40kms. These are exciting, challenging and very technical stages that provide un-paralleled competition

We are in the throes of finalising a nearly 380 kilometre competitive event based in the Hallett/Burra/Mount Bryan area, with long special stages on mainly bulletproof roads - all with full special stage set-up and infrastructure.  It is planned for 1st 2nd and 3rd June 2018, and the competition will run on just the Saturday and Sunday, with a media/VIP ride day on the Friday afternoon. The event will be for Classic cars, an all comers category, cars of special interest, a round of the SARC, and a clubman category.
