Does the thought of petrol fumes and dust particles fighting for your nostrils attention get you excited?
Maybe the sight of car imitating crab is your sideways smorgasbord of choice.
Cranking into gear for another year, the Eurobodalla is set to play host to the Bay Stages Rally this Saturday.
With top rally car drivers from around Australia contesting the event as part of the New South Wales Rally Championship and Clubman Series, the Bay Stages is a vital round in the battle for overall honours.
North Shore Sporting Car Club spokesperson Wendy Andrews said the short series format ensured that each round was very competitive.
“There are only five rounds in the (NSW) series, so the racing is pretty close and very competitive,” Andrews said.
“Getting from point A to point B in the quickest time possible is what rallying is all about, but spectators will be situated on some really twisty corners and the drivers will put on a good show.
“The top ten drivers have the latest model cars, a few have V8’s, and the guys definitely like to throw the cars around at spectator points.”
As the official second round of the NSW Championship, the Bay Stages Rally draws the best drivers from around the country.
After the first round in Bega the Chmapionship finds Miles Sandy, Campbell Waller and Jack Wightman occupying the top three positions.
Three time NSW Rally Champion Miles Sandy has won the Bay Stages Rally three out of the last four years, and driving his Subaru Impreza STi again looks the man to beat.
Attempting to serve him up a snifter of dust will be Campbell Waller who took out the Clubman Series last year.
Stepping up to the State Championship, Waller will be pitting a Mitsubishi VR 4 against Sandy’s Subaru.
Jack Wightman, currently in third place and a veteran of the Bay Stages Rally, has special memories of the event from as far back as the early 80’s.
“In 1983/84 (I had) a long right downhill corner-fourth gear…sliding, trying to decide whether to put the front wheel over the edge to see if it would hang there.”
“Common sense and self preservation prevailed.”
Comprising a number of stages, the Bay Stages Rally runs into the night throughout shire roads and forests.
“The first car is due to start at 12 noon on Saturday, with the last car probably arriving back at 10.30pm,” Andrews said.
“All the cars will be at the staging area (at Clyde Street car park) at 10.30 on Saturday morning before the start, so spectators can come down and talk to the drivers.”
