Adelaide Hills Rally October 2023

Adelaide Hills Rally October 2023

The Calibrated Performance Customer Racing team were track side at Shell V-Power Motorsport Park providing support and performance engineering services for Neal Bates Motorsport at the Adelaide Hills Rally. What an amazing (windy) weekend down south watching Round 5 of the ARC - Motorsport Australia Rally Championship.

The Adelaide Hills Rally was always going to be an exciting round for the championship; with two rallies to go for the season and only fifteen points between Toyota Gazoo Racing Australia teammates Lewis and Harry Bates.

With the wind picking up on Saturday we saw the day wrap up with TBMP Stadium Track Super Special Stage (SSS). With competitors around a go-kart track head to head. The brothers lined up next to each other and battled it out with Harry finishing in front by just .064 of a second.  

At the midway point of Heat 2 Harry Bates and Coral Taylor got out to a solid lead after six stages with 29.2 seconds separating the rest of the top five.

However, Lewis and Anthony prevailed as the overall winners and are now one step closer to a second Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship (ARC) title. Victory in Heat 2 on Sunday and a runner-up finish in Heat 1 proved enough for them to take out the top spot for the whole event.

Thank you to Adelaide Hills Rally for putting on such a great event, congratulations to competitors & crews, event officials, event partners, supporters & spectators and the Adelaide Hills residents. Special mention to the Neal Bates Motorsport team for having us for the weekend.
