Second annual APC Rally set to roll in July
After a successful inauguration in 2011 and several four day ‘mini’ rallies later, the second 14-day APC Rally is set to roll on 28 July 2012 – finishing on 10 August; and whilst the 7100km course has been surveyed to test rider’s endurance and ability it’s not a race, so the route will have easier alternatives around the more technical sections. All riders finishing the course will receive the ‘Tony Kirby Completion Medal’ in memory of one of our greatest outback moto adventurers.
Set in an anti-clockwise direction, the 2012 APC rally will wind through Queensland, NSW, ACT, Victoria and South Australia. Following the Dividing Range from Wodonga to Woodenbong, including what will undoubtedly be some snowy sections in the Victorian Alps, then flowing into more open country across the Diamantina flood plains, the Strzelecki Desert and the foothills of the Flinders Ranges. Whether you’re a weekend trailrider or an accomplished racer – for example Dean Nuttall used last year’s rally as a fitness test for Dakar – this is one event not to miss.
With start points at Urbenville, Charleville, Wodonga, Bathurst, Dorrigo, Birdsville, Yunta and Marree, there’s one near you (hey this is an adventure rally). A GPS program loaded by the organisers will see you off alone or with a bunch of mates. And with no pre-determined overnights you can camp wherever or book in at any of the friendly country pubs along the way.
Return to your start point and the Tony Kirby Medallion is yours.
