The Organizer’s regret to advise the cancellation of the RCK Group Paparoa Novice Rally, scheduled for 10 September 2022.
Unfortunately, and despite Iwi, Sponsors, Competitor, Council and Community support – the Kaipara District Council have just confirmed that they believe the current state of their gravel roads renders them unsuitable for Rallying at this time.
“We have been working hard to find suitable alternative roads for the Rally, but we have been unsuccessful in achieving this” said Bob Mitchell, Chairman of the Organising Committee. “We will continue to investigate other locations and roads that provide a challenging, yet simple and efficient Novice Rally for the Sport of Rallying”.
“I would like to thank all the supporters and volunteers that helped get the RCK Group Paparoa Novice Rally to this stage – and especially Clinton Cunningham from RCK Group for his offer to come on board as naming Sponsor”
