A week has now passed since a hectic last weekend.
Thank you for your valuable contribution to what we can now say has been another successful ARC Eureka Rally. Competitors seemed to be only very positive in their feedback about the selected course and the event organisation.
Unfortunately we had to send in the Medical Intervention Vehicles on both days. The crew of Car 14, Ben Kittle and Caroline Vale from Alice Springs were both discharged from hospital on Sunday with no serious injuries, just bruising. The co-driver of car 10, Mike Dale was discharged on Sunday with no serious injuries, just bruising. The driver Gary Brown, after being flown to Melbourne, was discharged on Monday with fractured ribs.
We did have a breach of stage security on Saturday, when a member of the public camped inside the course, disobeyed directions to either leave immediately or stay put for the day, and thought they could sneak away after a while. Fortunately they did not collide with a rally car. There will be no option next time.
Apologies for the dust out there, but the mild March Ballarat weather was kind to us and did the make the weekend overall more enjoyable for all. We look forward to your continued assistance as we begin planning for another Eureka Rally in 2019.
