May 16th, 2021, in South Australia’s famous wine country
The MSS Safety Rally Barossa is a one-day gravel Rally event which references and builds on the many successful years of Rally SA in the Barossa region.
It creates an important daughter event to add to the premium gravel rally event that is AGL Rally SA – Rally of the Heartland which will be held on May 8th and 9th 2021.
It will enable all crews taking part in the Burra event, especially from interstate, to access a one-day event just a week later in the famous Barossa Valley. So, do the Heartland, stay to explore the Valley – or leave the car, and come back, or holiday in the region, and bookend it all with a smart, quick day of classic rallying on classic roads.
Those who do both events will attract a 50% discount on their Rally Barossa entry fee, So, come for the rallies, stay to explore.
Taking in iconic sections of road from Rallies SA of old, the MSS Safety Rally Barossa will deliver 9 stages run throughout the day. Total competitive distance is 102 km. Entries will be limited to 40.
Categories such as Classic, invitational, Clubman, and intro as well as Regularity are on offer, much the same as the mother event – AGL Rally SA – Rally of the Heartland – so building some critical mass in the gravel Rally scene within South Australia and driving increased investment and enthusiasm for the sport, and, of course, increased visitations to SA’s regional towns – along with the potential to expand the visitor economy, and provide media exposure
The MSS Safety Rally Barossa also creates opportunities for newcomers to the sport to take part at lower price points, actively promoting participation
