Tickets for motor sport's newest and most interesting event, the Rally Calder presented by East Coast Bullbars, go on sale this week offering rally fans the chance to see the heroes of Australian rallying up close and personal in the first stadium based round of the Bosch Australian Rally Championship on March 1-4.

Motor sport fans will be able to purchase tickets including exclusive grandstand seats through Foxtix from Wednesday December 14th to ensure their place at what will be rallying history with an event that is the future of the sport.

According to CEO of the Bosch ARC, Scott Pedder the tickets for Rally Calder presented by East Coast Bullbars are well priced and will ensure a great weekend of entertainment across a wide spectrum of motor sport activity, not just the headlining Bosch ARC cars.

Rally Calder offers competition from the first round of the 2012 CAMS Australian Tarmac Rally Championship as well as the first event of the Australian Side by Side Rally Challenge. Add this to a unique Online Car Forum battle that will feature Australia's hottest modified road cars, Drift Car Demonstrations, rallyschool.com.au Rally Hotlaps plus displays, kids zone and the like and you have a comprehensive line up of motor sport attractions.

A major part of the event also is a FREE entry rally show and ceremonial start to take place in front of the West Waters Hotel and Entertainment Complex at Caroline Springs on Thursday March 1st starting from 5pm.

"We have looked to offer fans great value and a weekend of motor sport fun and action first and foremost," said Scott Pedder.

"Tickets will be priced from as little as $25 with some great family value options and there are a number of options for reserved seats and special vantage points around the Calder facility where the Bosch ARC cars will be tackling both tarmac, gravel and a number of mixed surface stages," he said.

"As a life long fan of rallying I wanted to provide an event where the spectator gets almost unlimited opportunities to see our great sport from a vast array of different vantage points. Rally Calder enables the rally fan to do what cant be done in as part of a normal rally event," he added.

"A full range of tickets will be available from Foxtix at any of its outlets or on line at www.foxtix.com.au from 9am Wednesday 14th December making them an ideal Christmas gift for motor sport enthusiasts," he added.

We also have an extensive corporate hospitality program and a very unique and exclusive enthusiast club which will be known as Intercom, which provides some incredible experiences for the die-hard motor sport and rally fan. Check out rally.com.au for all the details."

"Rally Calder presented by East Coast Bullbars is going to be a true festival of motor sport, attracting enormous interest across a wide spectrum of fans and ECB is proud to be a part of it," he added.
The entire event will be run within the boundaries of the Calder Park complex north west of Melbourne allowing spectators to catch all the action within a short walk of the car park.

The Bosch ARC competitors will cover more than 100km of competitive stages over the three days of competition embracing both gravel and tarmac stages with spectacular jumps and a range of challenging conditions including the formidable high banked Thunderdome oval.
A number of further initiatives and attractions are set to be announced in coming weeks.
