Welcome to the website of the Brindabella Motor Sport Club - Rallying In The ACT

The BMSC is based in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. However, residence is not a prerequisite for membership - our members reside in all parts of the country. Although our members participate in many disciplines of motorsport, we are chiefly a rally oriented club and conduct several special stage rallys each year. Our members can be found at events of all levels across the country, from small club events, right up to the WRC (World Rally Championship).

Vale: BMSC Forums
Jan 17, 2017 - 2:55 PM - by Matt
After nearly 11 years as BMSC webmaster, my tenure has come to an end. The keys will be handed over to a team of designers, who will re-invigorate the site for the future.

However, it has been made apparent that the forum will cease to be. I do not know when this will be happening. These days, sites such as Facebook fulfil the day-to-day requirements of enthusiasts and supporters in this "connected" age, and have taken over from forums such as this. While it may have only a percentage of it's former traffic, it is a shame to lose it, as posts on social media aren't readily available through generic (eg. Google) searches. It's amazing just how many times an internet search has revealed a link to a discussion within those very forums!

I am not privvy as to what will happen to other aspects of the site, such as the BMSC Membership portal, the ACT Series registration and point scores, or the repository of results, entry lists, supplementary regulations, and photos that have been amassed over time. I expect it to be treated with the respect it deserves.

I feel somewhat responsible for this happening. Truth be told, due to changes in my personal life, I haven't had the time nor the energy to adequately maintain or improve the site for the last few years. For that, I whole-heartedly apologise.

I, for one, will miss the wealth of knowledge that has been imparted over the years in the Technical forum. I've enjoyed the "vigorous debates" within the Australian Rally Discussion forum (not to mention the grey hairs I now have due to some threads/personalities over the years). And I think we may all miss trawling the Buy and Sell forums for bargains!

Most of all, I will miss you guys and gals. I have come to know each of you through your posts, met many of you at events over the years, and have the honour of referring to some of you as my dear friends. The sense of community that exists is very powerful, and united, is a voice that can not be ignored. I remember receiving a phone call at 11:30 pm one evening, due to a certain head (who was in Paris at the time) of a certain organisation, being upset over something that had been posted, and needed action immediately. Aah...good times...

I don't attend events often theses days, and I don't do Facebook (even though I was quite humbled by the "Get Matty T on Facebook" group), but I sincerely hope that I will see you all again.

It's with a heavy heart tonight that I inform all who know Bob, that he passed away at lunchtime today at the San Hospital in Sydney, after succumbing to infection brought on by a burst abscess. He has been unwell for several years with Bowel Cancer, a knee reconstruction & a recent hip operation which he was still in rehab for when he passed away.
I will update this post when funeral arrangements have been finalised.

DOMA Hotels Brindabella Stages
Sep 30, 2016 - 4:35 PM - by MT
The Brindabella Motor Sport Club and the team behind the DOMA Hotels Brindabella Stages are extremely disappointed to advise that the event has been cancelled as a result of the wet weather in the region. A course check this morning confirmed that there is significant damage to the roads, including areas still underwater, and with poor weather forecast for the next week there is little chance of fixing them for use in 2 weeks time. We would like to express our sincere thanks to DOMA Hotels for their support of the event, and to all competitors who showed an interest in the event, it was looking like a cracking field. The next BMSC event is Rallye des Femmes, and we have our fingers crossed that we will be able to run that event successfully.
V-Sport Canberra Night Howl Stages
Jul 26, 2016 - 8:49 PM - by Marty
Now that the Narooma Forest rally has been successfully run (a great job, Michael Taylor and team), we now concentrate on our next rally.

Friday night rallying makes a welcome return to Canberra's forests.

The V-Sport Canberra Night Howl Stages will be held on FRIDAY night, the 2nd September. The event is round three of the 2016 BMSC Club Championship Series.

The Supp Regs are atached. An online entry form is being developed and will be available shortly.

The event is compact - using some of the best roads in Kowen. There will be one stage - run three times.

First car starts at 5.30 and the last car should be finished at about 8.30pm.

I hope to see you out there.

Volunteers needed for Narooma Forest Rally - 23rd July
Jul 11, 2016 - 11:30 PM - by Marty
The Narooma Forest Rally is shaping up to be a cracker of an event. We have over 50 entries so far - with a week to go before entries close.

HOWEVER, we are desperately short of officials.

We need about 40 people to come and help out.

If you can help out, please contact Cheryl:


Narooma Forest Rally
Jun 16, 2016 - 11:57 PM - by MT
Supplementary Regulations for the Narooma Forest Rally have been approved and entries are now officially open! See for the regs and to enter the event.

A few points we wanted to clarify
1. The website has a secure online entry form with payment options including bank deposit, cheque, and PayPal. This is the only way to enter the event.
2. The BMSC have decided to make RallySafe mandatory for the event. This is purely for competitor safety, to address the communications issues we have experienced over the past 2 years. We feel it is our only option. If any competitor has a major issue with this, please contact us as I am sure we can come up with a solution.

We look forward to receiving your entry!
