Coffs Harbour has lost the New South Wales round of the Australian Rally Championship (ARC) to Adelaide in a bid backed by the South Australian Government. Devastated officials of Rally NSW were informed by the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS) late yesterday that after 10 years of successfully running the event, Coffs Harbour would no longer hold a round of the ARC, with South Australia winning the round over NSW.

Rally NSW Clerk of Course Bob Halpin said CAMS had not been critical of the way the event had been run in Coffs Harbour, stating that the decision had been a financial one. "CAMS informed Rally NSW that the South Australian bid had been heavily financed by the South Australian Government and as such was an attractive proposal for CAMS," Mr Halpin said.
