Entry List

The first car departed the Rally Headquarters, Robertstown Oval at 12:00pm for the 13 Special Stages, which consisted of 8 day and 5 night stages, which was set up by the Organisers for the Drivers and Navigators to negotiate and went through the areas around Robertstown, including Worlds End Creek, Emu Downs, Brady Creek, Ngapala and Point Pass.

Due to the lack of recent rain and the wind on the day, the conditions were dusty, however this did not impede the drivers & navigators from competing competitively against time and one another as indicated by the times that they obtained.
