New stages, new roads, and an amazing special offer for newbies!

No longer a single stage hillclimb, the Lake Mountain Sprint in 2013 has expanded to 17 stages and 190 competitive kilometres in 2013, with teams taking on the climbing forest road from the base of Marysville all the way to the Lake Mountain summit on day one, then onto the Cumberland Junction on day two.

The Lake Mountain Sprint will be centred in Marysville, with Rally HQ and documentation/scrutineering based at Marysville, and all stops, lunches and servicing to take place in this inviting tourist town. The official dinner will be held at on the Saturday night in Marysville, with a presentation function to be held shortly after the last run on Sunday - with post-race celebrations continuing well into the night - at the always-accommodating Buxton Hotel.

The competition consists of 17stages over the weekend, for just $2200, including the AASA permit fee and Rallysafe tracking unit. The entry fee for Touring competitors is just $600 - so affordable for such a fun closed-road driving experience - without the need of a roll cage, or even a co driver (though it is more fun to share!).

And for the first time, Mountain Motorsports is opening the entry up to a unique discount: Bring A Buddy. Sign up a Buddy - a driver who has not competed in the past four MMS events - to this year's Lake Mountain Sprint, and we will halve your entry fee as a thank you!

To enter, please download your EOI at www.australiantarmacrally.com/forms or call Peter Washington on 0418 337 955 to reserve your place in this great event!

For accommodation enquiries regarding the Lake Mountain Sprint call the Marysville Tourist Information centre 0n 03 5963 4567.

Whilst the days may be getting shorter there is certainly still plenty of daylight available to enjoy some of Victoria’s nicest roads.....at speed. The course has been set and the Lake Mountain Sprint is set to go green on the 25th & 26th May with an all new multi-stage tarmac rally format.

Victorian based tarmac rally specialists, Mountain Motorsports, continues to develop exciting multi-stage rallies on some of Australia’s most challenging tarmac roads. The Lake Mountain Sprint is no exception with almost 200kms of closed road special stages and minimal liason sections amongst an iconic Victorian alpine area it delivers excellent value and a challenge for crews of all abilities.

Mountain Motorsports events are renowned for their easy to follow formats, sociable atmosphere and enthusiastic competitors which makes these events the perfect way to begin your tarmac rally career. Affordable driver and navigator licences are obtainable from competitor friendly motorsport regulatory body Australian Auto-Sport Alliance (www.australianautosportalliance.com) and with assistance during the event only as far away as your nearest fellow competitor these events are ideal for first time tarmac rally participants.

An excellent way to sample what tarmac rallying has to offer is to join the Touring section of the Lake Mountain Sprint with crews able to get a taste for the type of terrain to expect on a rally stage within a controlled environment with minimal alterations required to your road car. The Touring section covers the same stages as the competition cars with a leader to keep the pace respectable.

Whether it is the competitive or the touring section that appeals entries are capped at 50 to guarantee trouble free running and a friendly social atmosphere so enter now at www.australiantarmacrally.com to confirm your start and enjoy a great family friendly weekend of motorsport.

In order to get your car running like a dream Mountain Motorsports have schedule another Test & Tune Day on Sunday 5th May on the rugged Mt Baw Baw summit climb so that reliability is not an issue during the rally itself. If your car can handle the steepest road in Australia then completing the two day rally course should be a breeze. Test & Tune Day spaces are limited so please reserve your spot now at www.australiantarmacrally.com.

Since we have mentioned the iconic Gippsland climb the date has been set for the next edition of the classic Mt Baw Baw Sprint so lock the 22nd & 23rd February 2014 into your diaries as the first round of the extended 2014 Australian Tarmac Rally Championship beginning at the steepest road climb in the country.

In short the 2013 Championship is well underway with round 2 set to be a blast amongst some great scenery and things are looking bright for tarmac rallying in Australia with next years extended Championship all but locked in. Stay tuned to Mountain Motorsports for regular updates and enjoy the action packed events to come.

See you at Lake Mountain.

The new format of Mountain Motorsports’ annual Lake Mountain Sprint has been hailed an overwhelming success by competitors, officials and the organisers, after a fantastic weekend of tarmac rally in and around the Victorian township of Marysville on May 25-26.
Usually a tricky and technical 10km hillclimb, the Lake Mountain Sprint was changed this year to a multi-stage event, as are all the rallies in this year’s Australian Tarmac Championship series, and utilised both directions of the Lake Mountain summit road, the fast sweeping tarmac from Marysville to the base and the summit of the Alpine resort, and the dramatic tight twists and wide open throttle corners climbing toward the Reefton Spur.
Round two of the national four-round AASA Championship began early on Saturday, where clear skies had clouded overnight producing a slick wet surface. The Competition and Touring fields erred on the side of caution for the first few runs, with crews reporting no black ice or frost, but very slippery sections and changing grip levels.
Previous LMS winners Jeff and Catherine Denmeade (Mitsubishi Evo VIII) fired out of the starters box and built a quick lead, while the next three places were more closely fought between 2012 ATC winners Clinton Arentz and Pete Burrey in an Evo X, Vladimir Berak and Michael Luff in a Subaru WRX, and anther husband/wife combination in Daniel Lemish and Samantha Stevens; the pair swapping seats in their Evo VI for this event.
Television personality Glenn Ridge and his son Oliver also swapped seats, with Ridge handing over the wheel of his Mazda RX-7 for the first time to his P-plate son, and admitting he was not the best codriver to learn with – keeping breakfast down, but saying that not many notes were actually coming out.
The tricky conditions caught out one team partway through day one, with a Subaru WRX STI nudging a bank and losing a wheel. Both competitors were unharmed, and the field praised the RallySafe units that MMS runs in all events for alerting the cars to the hazard around a blind bend.
Conditions cleared later in the afternoon, and Berak began to pull away from the battling Arentz and Lemish, only for the former to suffer a gearbox failure. Arentz was forced to return to service, and TMR Australia set about replacing the gearbox – which was done in a matter of hours.
The next day saw a drying road for the first stage, but the dark skies and dense overgrowth promised a slippery introduction to the new sections of roads up to the infamous Reefton Spur. A major moment for Tim O’Connor and Gareth Sutcliffe (Subaru WRX STI) pleased the spectators at the Lake Mountain junction, though he valiantly kept the boot in and made it back to the road without collecting too much of the scenery or damaging his immaculate car.
At the end of the two days and 16 stages, the Denmeades had claimed an easy victory in their 2004 Evo, winning all but one stage of the event. Berak took second place, with Lemish third and halting Denmeade’s winning streak with a day two stage win. Fourth outright and the first Classic car was Keith Morling and son Alex in a Ford Escort, while fifth outright went to Glyn Crimp and Frank Brookhouse in a Ford Focus RS.
The ATC Leaderboard is now tied at the top, with Berak/Luff and Lemish/Stevens on equal points (1312pts), with the Denmeades third (1100pts), Arentz/Burrey fourth (1056pts), and O’Connor/Sutcliffe tied for fifth with Keith and Alex Morling (659pts).
The Australian Tarmac Championship, which is largely based around the alpine regions of north-east Victoria, now takes a break for the winter months and returns to the same region for the Great Tarmac Rally on October 26 – 27, with the fourth and final round, the Snowy River Sprint, on November 23 – 24.
Mountain Motorsports wishes to thank all the competitors, the tireless work of the RaceSolutions volunteers, medical officers and officials, RallySafe Status Awareness Systems, Elevation 423 for hosting the social evenings and finishing ceremony, and the people of Marysville and the Marysville Tourist Committee and Murrindindi Shire for allowing this fabulous event to flourish.
