Finnish World Rally Championship star, Mikko Hirvonen, will contest next year’s Stadium Cars International Classic Rally of Otago in a huge coup for the New Zealand event.
The 2016 Otago Rally “Intention To Enter” form has been released, and can now be downloaded.
The competitive stages for the 40th running of the Otago Rally have been named in honour of some of the drivers who have contested the Otago Classic Rally over the past 15 years.
The 2016 Otago Rally will see the debut of a brand new Subaru WRX STi NR4 in the hands of the new New Zealand Rally Champion, Ben Hunt.
The course for next year’s 40th anniversary Otago Rally is taking shape, with the 2016 event likely to include around 280 competitive kilometres over 16 special stages.
The 2016 Otago Rally has had a date change and will now be held from April 8 to 10 as the first round of the New Zealand Rally Championship.
