COT20 is on!

It’s on again!!

After much consultation with competitors, service crews, and of course, analysing the overall costs to compete in Australia’s only marathon gravel rally, we have decided to take the COT back home to the wonderful roads of Outback NSW.

Although the course is still to be finalised, the event will still carry on the tradition of 7 days of competition with 5 special stages per day.

The event will start in Parkes, New South Wales, on Saturday 8th August with the ceremonial start followed by the Prologue and the welcome function capping off the day.

After two intense days of competition around Parkes and to the west, using some of the great roads of the 2012 and 2014 COT, we will be heading east to Orange.

Here the event will use some of the fabulous countryside for two more hotly contested days around this vast area before moving on for the final three days around the famous motorsport hub of Bathurst.

Gone are the car destroying sand hills and unrelenting terrain of the Red Centre.

We will be heading off on our first survey soon and will be able to fill you in with accommodation details and lots more.

The COT20 Eevent Headquarters in Parkes will once again be at the Quality Inn Parkes International. Bookings are available phone: 02 6862 5222. Don’t forget to mention the Classic Outback Trial!
