Experienced rally official Brian Everitt has been promoted to two senior sporting roles in Coates Hire Rally Australia on the New South Wales Coffs Coast next September.
Mr Everitt will be Deputy Clerk of Course of the FIA World Rally Championship 10th round and Clerk of Course of round five of the East Coast Bullbars Australian Rally Championship, to be run on 11-14 September.
Mr Everitt, from Brisbane, formerly was Rally Australia’s Chief Safety Officer and in recent years has been Clerk of Course of the International Rally of Queensland, Australia’s round of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
Rally Australia Clerk of Course Adrian Stafford congratulated Mr Everitt on his appointment.
“Brian has a long and impressive history in rally management. His promotion to these roles adds some younger blood to our team and will support our aim of delivering an even better Rally Australia in 2014,” Mr Stafford said.
“Having Brian in the key role of Clerk of Course of the ECB ARC event will ensure we deliver more personal attention to this vital aspect of Rally Australia.”
Brian Everitt said: “Having been around the Australian and Asia Pacific rally scene for many years I am looking forward to learning more of the world rally scene and bringing back that knowledge to give our valued Australian competitors the best possible experience. Attending the WRC event in Argentina this year is another great opportunity to gather information.
“I’m confident that along with the rest of the organising team we will be offering all categories a fantastic event in Coffs later this year. We already have some of the best rally roads in the world – and with our new service park and SSS we have a truly world class event.”
