DUNEDIN – SOUTH ISLAND – NZ
To be held from April 7 to 9 2017, the Dunedin based event will once again be round one of the New Zealand Rally Championship, and will incorporate the popular International Otago Classic Rally, and a separate Allcomers event.
After a pre-event ceremonial start in Dunedin’s Octago on Friday, April 7, the route for the Otago Rally will take drivers over 14 special stages on Saturday and Sunday, with a competitive distance of nearly 285 kilometres.
The stages will all be run in daylight, with day one based around Lawrence, using roads that will be familiar to those that competed in the 2014 event.
A new 40km fast public road stage will test crews, while stages in the Glendhu Forest (roads not rallied on for at least 30 years) will offer a different character to the event, with tighter and more technical roads.
