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).
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.
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.
Supplementary Regulations for the Narooma Forest Rally have been approved and entries are now officially open! See naroomaforestrally.com.au 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.
