THE Australian Motor Sport Action Group (AMSAG) – the not-for-profit responsible for organising and managing motor rallies across country New South Wales for its member base, will be getting back on track after suspending their rallies during COVID-19.

Michael Bannon, AMSAG President, said that they’ve been unable to have any spectators since the start of COVID-19, and that they’ve had to make some important changes to their events to ensure safety.

“It’s not so much the number of spectators, but knowing where they’re going and that they’re social distancing while at our events; that’s why we’ve decided to just make a blanket call to say no spectators for now.”

Mr Bannon said that it’s typically locals who come out for a look, and that their spectator numbers tend to sit around 100 to 150 people, including many family and friends.

“These upcoming events, including the one in Bulahdelah, will be run a little differently to the past,” Mr Bannon continued.

“We will have results available online but won’t unfortunately have the ability to live stream the stages.”

MidCoast Council’s Economic Development Coordinator, Robyn Brennan, said that the reactivation of our streets and public spaces will be a positive sight and will lift community spirit.

“Some of the first events to go ahead will be those in the community sports area and include the AMSAG Car Rally at Bulahdelah on 18 July and the NSW Surf Masters at Boomerang Beach on 30 July,” she said.

Manning Hill Rd will be closed from 5pm until 10pm on Saturday 18 July.
