Coffs Coast Festival of Motor Sport President Bob Carle is disappointed to announce that
this year’s Festival will not be going ahead but says it will be back in 2022 bigger and better.
The Festival, scheduled for November, included a range of motor sport events planned to
coincide with the finale of the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC) which would
have seen international competitors taking part alongside Australian based teams. The
APRC has also recently been cancelled.
Given that competitors from many parts of Australia are unlikely to be able to travel in the
short-term, the Coffs Coast Festival of Motor Sport made the decision to cancel the 2021
event to avoid any costly last-minute cancellations for teams, organisers and fans.
Mr Carle thanked those who have contributed to the Festival so far, acknowledging the
incredible support the event has received from the local Coffs Coast community and motor
sports clubs from Grafton to Kempsey.
“The support from local sponsors has been tremendous, particularly the CeX Group and
Geoff King Motors” said Mr Carle. “I’d also like to thank the NSW Government for its support
of this event, and we hope to be able to confirm details of the 2022 Festival soon, which we
know will deliver significant benefits for our region”.
“The local community has been extremely supportive of what we’ve tried to achieve, and
we’ve had strong backing from the Coffs Harbour City Council” added Mr Carle.
“While we are disappointed for 2021, we are looking forward to an even bigger and better
event in 2022 with many additional local clubs coming forward requesting to stage events.”
