Rally Australia cancelled
The Rally Australia (14-17 November) - last stage of the FIA World Championship WRC - organisers have been forced to cancel this year’s event due to the devastating bushfires affecting much of the New South Wales region, close to where the stages were due to be held.
After briefly considering holding the event with a revised schedule over a significantly reduced route, the Rally Australia organisers were left with no choice but to cancel the event on Tuesday afternoon (local time in Coffs Harbour), as conditions failed to improve.
Serious bushfires have hit the State of New South Wales in recent days, devastating the local area.
