Through your media organisation I would like to thank, on behalf of the Organising Committee of Repco Rally Australia, the following groups which helped make the event the huge success it was:

Firstly, the residents of the Kyogle and Tweed shires, who overwhelmingly gave support for an event which was, to most, an unknown quantity. 

We intend to engage with the community in greater depth in the future in order to improve the event and to rectify any problems from this year. 

Your support and enthusiasm at spectator points, private parties on properties along the route, the Rally Show in Murwillumbah and the Service Zone in Kyogle indicated to us how much you were enjoying the event.

Secondly, the various authorities, particularly the NSW Police and the two Shire Councils, which worked in an extremely constructive and helpful way to ensure the event could be conducted in a safe manner.

Thirdly, the 1200 officials who voluntarily committed their time over long, hard days to put on a world-class event

And finally the media, particularly from the local area, which in the main gave the event excellent and most importantly, balanced coverage.

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Garry Connelly

Chairman of the Organising Committee,
