North Island Rally Series announces new date for Rally of Dargaville Tunatahi

The opening round of the Generator Rental Services North Island Rally Series has been moved to a new date after the organising committee decision to postpone the rally in the light of the recent tragic accident at the Arcadia Road rallysprint.

The Ventia Rally of Dargaville, Tunatahi, was set to go this Saturday with a strong entry list and instead will take place on Saturday 27 July 2024.

“The unfortunate passing of Brooklyn Horan and Tyson Jemmett has affected the whole rally community,” commented Series coordinator Marty Roestenburg. “It is appropriate to pause while we all take some time to grapple with the enormity of this happening. Many are very close to or know both families and the rally committee thought it respectful and appropriate to move the rally to a later date.”

The Ventia Rally of Dargaville will now become the third event on the NIRS calendar with the season now to get underway with the Piakonui Rd Rallysprint, Matamata, 28 April 2024.

The first of two rallysprint events will see competitors competing over the same stretch of road with timed multiple passes. Hosted by the Thames Valley Car Club, competitors will be flat out for 7kms including only one 200 metre straight in the quiet backdrop of the Richmond Ranges.

The six-round Generator Rental Services North Island Rally Series will be contested over a variety of road surfaces including tarmac and incorporating both local Clubsport events through to participating in a New Zealand Rally Championship round.
