Motorsport Australia has confirmed the dates for the 2024 Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC) with another six exciting rounds of rally action.

Hosting the season finale in November this year, the National Capital Rally will return to the season opening slot in 2024, while Rally Launceston switches to the last round of the year, and home of the potential Championship deciding event.

Following a start in the nation’s capital, the ARC then heads out west for the famous Forest Rally in May before making the journey to Queensland for Rally Queensland at the end of June.

Like this year, the second half of the season gets underway in August with Gippsland Rally in Victoria, while the Adelaide Hills Rally takes place in September.

The season then wraps up on the Apple Isle in November with Rally Launceston in what should be a perfect time of year to visit the country’s southernmost state.

Motorsport Australia’s Director of Motorsport & Commercial Operations Michael Smith was pleased to provide the calendar early to allow teams plenty of time to prepare for their 2024 campaigns. 

"The ARC has grown substantially in the past two years and we’re thrilled to be able to have the same six events on the 2024 calendar as this year,” Smith said.

"With four rounds complete and two more to come in 2023, the health of the Championship and our individual events is as strong as ever. Having the same six events highlights that stability within the championship which also allows spectators plenty of opportunities to return to events they have enjoyed already."
