MESSAGE FROM THE CLERK OF COURSE
Coming off the disappointment of last year’s Monaro Stages, with the event being cancelled due to
wet weather, we wanted to bring back the look and feel of classic rallying, showcasing our stand
alone event and supporting the series that support us.
The Light Car Club and organising team, wanted to remove the extra factors that hinder rallying and
showcase our roads and event structure, that will leave a smile on your face and not a hole in your
No other one day event offers 189 kms of competitive stages with only 124 kms in transport. This
years’ Monaro Stages will also include two night stages where all cars will start in the dark, so no
advantages are given (unless you are a night driving champion).
The roads are in excellent condition, with a mixture of CAT4 forestry roads with tight and technical
side sections incorporated, to give a wide variety of road types and surfaces.
We have been welcomed by Brian, who runs Bondi Forest Lodge, which will be our base, Rally HQ
and Service Park for the event all within 200-300 metres of each other. The lodge itself sleeps up to
72 people with a central amenities block with showers and toilets. Accommodation also includes a
fantastic grassed area for camping and availability for camping trailers and vans. The
accommodation blocks (3) each have their own kitchens and wood burning heaters for crews to use.
Additionally, there is a main mess hall. We also have access to our own private lake for those
interested in a spot of fishing.
Service crews will be well catered for with our service park a hop, step and jump from the Lodge and
all facilities close at hand.
Skymesh Pty Ltd have provided Rally HQ with satellite NBN internet connection for our
communications and to keep our crews safe. We are very grateful for their support.
This year we have decided to forgo our presentation and replace it with a celebration of the event.
Provisional results will be handed out at the conclusion of the event.
The Lions Club of Bombala will be providing catering for the event, with Jindabyne Brewing and
Wildbrumby Schnapps coming on board to help with the celebrations. I’m sure yarns around a fire-
drum will be well received and will top off the great event we have planned. Camping and Lodge
accommodation is encouraged to encompass the atmosphere.
Our thanks again to Andrew & Georgina from Kosciuszko Automotive for their sponsorship and
support for the Monaro Stages. We greatly appreciate their support now going into its 5th year with
the event. We also welcome onboard Jindabyne Brewing and welcome back wonderful sponsors,
Lazer Lamps and Wildbrumby Schnapps.
