Before the competition season starts, the 2018 RallyWA Presentation Dinner will be held on Saturday 9th February at The Vault Restaurant in Kalamunda. Further details will be announced soon.

The 2019 starts with the Forest Rally in the first weekend of April. Planning is underway and a few changes can be anticipated. We have been asked to move the Nannup Service Park and are currently looking at alternatives. Similarly a landowner has asked us not to run the Folly Stage through his property so there will be changes there. Changes are also be put in place for some of the other stages.

The Karri Rally will be based back in Manjimup, we have been asked to not use Nyamup as the Service Park by the owners. However, we will still use the roads in the forest around Nyamup selecting the best from the 2018 event.

Round 3 will be back in Boddington on the June long weekend and Round 4 will continue to run from Kirup.

The Darling 200 has been moved to September to run with less fire risk and some moisture in the roads to hopefully improve the quality of the roads. This event will for the first time be a full round of the WA Rally Championship and will be Road Book ONLY, Pacenotes will not be permitted.

The season wraps up with the Experts Cup in October, once again around the Wellington Dam.

**Stay tuned for an announcement shortly regarding the naming rights to the 2019 WARC.
