Was thinkin of giving it a go but might be a bit fat and a bit old for it, how serious do they take it, is there a "fat and old" class I could compete in? Or am I just kidding myself?

Yep, be happy to.

A bunch of us rode down to it one year. Had a ball.

Yup Mick is all go so thats great.

Team Husaberg will have both Mick Heuchan (2nd Outright 2010 & 2011) and Damien Grabham (1st Outright 2011) running their FE570's again.

Also I had it confirmed yesterday that a certain Ben Grabham is also a confirmed starter on his 2012 KTM500EXC

The event is building profile

That said it's a great event for any rider at any level.........so jump right in and have a blast !!

Hi Garry;

Just to clear something up for the viewers at home... what's the go with the roadbook instructions/nav gear for this event...?

As I understand it, the Quit rally runs the bikes much along the lines of the US RallyMoto events in the states (like the Sandblast Rally etc.). Where the roadbook is there primarily so you can navigate the transport/road sections that connect the various competition Specials?

Once you are on the Special Stage, you pretty much commit the overall stage description to memory, and just follow the arrows and bunting through the stages (ie. go as hard as you can). There is no real "navigation" on the special stages (ie: reading the odometer and rolling on the notes for all the calls/intersections?) like on an event such as Condo 750 or Yilgarn Rallye?

Is that why just a simple manual routechart roller and standard tripmeter is sufficient? No need for a full cross country rally navigation set-up?

Yup Nav is ceratinly needed to get between stages on the liaisons as its easy to get lost if you are not on it.

The last 2 years during the stages after the first pass yes you could skip the nav and just race the course, BUT there are still some !! and the odd !!! waiting to bite you if you dont know where they are


This year however nav WILL be needed each lap as the course will change and has some diversions in it JUST for the Moto/Quad boys and the new for 2012 UTV (SXS) classes.

The UTV's such as Polaris RZR XP900's actually have their own series run in conjunction with the ARC championship and is sponsored jointly by Canam and Polaris........some big ARC names will be running in it as well eg Cody Crocker in a Polaris RZR XP900 (so look out )

its really that the basic Condo style setup is good enough and there is no need for potentail riders to be put off by the cost of ICO/MD etc

Fair enough... I understood that with regards the transport stages.

But are the special stages taped, with arrows and caution markers (like other ARC rally events I suppose), or is that only at the various "spectator" locations along the SS.

That is to say; if Fred Gumby (me) is on the start line... and if I just dawdle off and follow the markers (not look at the book) will I come out at the other end at the finish control?

Or... like at the Safari or Yilgarn/Condo... if I do not navigate the routechart... is there the possibility to get lost on the special stages?

As I understand it, ARC events have bunting/arrows and cautions (both the !! and the !!! varieties, visually marked on course?)
