With the Great Dividing Range meeting the Pacific Ocean, there’s no denying the uniqueness of the Coffs Coast environment. This magnificent setting, where rainforest drapes the coastal escarpment right down to the golden sands of the unspoiled Coffs Coastal beaches, is one of the most spectacular backdrops for any event on the World Rally Championship calendar. Such a spectacular landscape is also home to many unique animals and plants. As a base for the FIA World Rally Championship, the Coffs Coast is a showcase for a pristine part of the unique Australian environment.
As event organisers, our entire team is working toward conducting the 2017 Kennards Hire Rally Australia in a way that maximises the spirit of competition, enjoyment, and spectacle of the rally, with minimal adverse environmental impact.
In 2013, Rally Australia became the first motorsport event in the world to achieve the top level of accreditation from the FIA Institute’s sustainability programme. The event was awarded with Achievement of Excellence – the best of three levels in the Environmental Certification Framework.
Then in 2014, Rally Australia became the first FIA-regulated event among all motorsport events worldwide to achieve the FIA’s Carbon Neutral Status.
