These sections will be joined together to form an exciting rallycross course beamed on large TV screens throughout the venue.
Representing Australia will be the Techsport Rallycross Team, who have entered two potent Mitsubishi Evos.
Track and rally star, Steve Glenney, will be driving Techsport’s purpose built Evo 8 RX that won the inaugural Extreme Rallycross event at Lakeside, Queensland, last September.
Rally champion, Marcus Walkem, will drive his unrestricted Evo IX rally car that dominated last year’s Australian Rally Championship, with an outright victory in the 4WD category.
