Rally tickets go on sale
TICKETS to Rally Australia were put on sale yesterday before the event was officially given the go-ahead by Parliament.
Attending the September 3 to 6 event won't break the bank, with tickets available for as low as $22.
Competition will begin in 72 days, with a night-time Super Special Stage on the closed streets of Murwillumbah.
Prices, including pre-purchase discounts, range from $22 for an adult to watch the Saturday or Sunday gravel special stages, to $372.50 for a Family Whole Event Super Pass with daily access to all viewing points and grandstand seating for the Tweed Super Special Stage at Murwillumbah.
An individual Whole Event Super Pass, providing access to all gravel Special Stages and all nights of the Tweed Super Special Stage, is $99.
The world's biggest rally stars, and a strong contingent of Australians, will make up the 60 entries expected for the event.
Tickets are available through Ticketek at www.ticketek.com.au.
The biggest crowds are expected at the Tweed Super Special Stage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, when cars will race three at a time, pursuit-style, around two laps of a 1.2-kilometre street circuit near the centre of Murwillumbah.
Speed on Tweed tickets will be sold separately, unless bought as part of the Whole Event Super Pass.
