Michele Brunt & Justin Glavish at last years Maramarua event.

Well Hello everyone,

and welcome back, the 2020 ABC Pipefitters Northern Rallysprint series is back and open for business as usual.

After a period of strange circumstances it’s fair to say that everyone will be glad that this covid 19 situation is almost over. No doubt there will be some kind of a knock on effect for some people, depending on your type of business, it has certainly affected ABC Pipefitters!

Im not 100% sure if it is going to effect the normal procedures of running an event but no doubt time will tell, so please read any rules & regs carefully and do as organisers request, by the time our next round is here im sure things will be back to normal, but just a heads up to still be aware and adhere to any organisers requests.

Now, to that next round, which will be round 4 of the 2020 series. Sunday 2nd August will see The South Auckland Car Club run its round of the series in Maramarua Forest. Regulations & Entry will be out soon, I do urge you to keep an eye out for any postings about these as im in no doubt that every man and his dog with a rally car will be wanting a run on this event, the club have noted this and will no doubt try its best to accommodate ABC registered competitors but please do not leave it to the last minute or you may be disappointed.

Round 5 is also pencilled in with the Hamilton Car Club running the fantastic Hoddle Road on the 23rd August, then to cap off the season we have the final round on 20th September, the Thames Valley Car Club round at Piaokuni Road.

So with the rallysprint series sorted, what of other events? Well there’s plenty of change, and for the better! Although it’s looking like a busy calendar from here on in it also adds a very exciting edge to the rest of the 2020 season. The introduction of a couple of club rallies has certainly spiced things up.

The Far North Rally, unfortunately will not be happening this year, below is the intended calendar for the Rallies and Rallysprints for the rest of this year. I must also add that there is also a lot of club events such as Hillclimbs, Bentsprints, Autocrosses etc,etc so I’d advise everyone to check out there local car clubs calendars as well.

No doubt there will be a lot more news to come over the next few weeks so please keep an eye on the various websites and facebook.
