About The Rally

The 2013 Vantage Aluminium Possum Bourne Memorial Rally has been confirmed. The event this year will run as a one day event as part of the New Zealand Rally Championship on September 7th and include club competitors in the same event. It will also be round 4 of the Top Half Rally Championship and round 5 of the Xtreme Rally Series. The start and finish will be in Pukekohe and planning is underway. It will be a mixed surface event including the roads in Maramarua Forest, Hampton Downs race track, Pukekohe Park Raceway and one tarmac public road stage with the approval of the Auckland Council.

A prize giving function will be held at the main grand stand at Pukekohe Park Raceway immediately after the finish.

The Pukekohe Car Club ran the Possum Bourne Memorial Rally for the first time in 2006 after holding a memorial rally sprint the two years previous. It was decided to hold the memorial event, and with the support of Peggy, Taylor, Spencer, Jazlin and Possums family we are able to remember him as the great rallying personality he was.

Possum was a member of the Pukekohe Car Club where his many friends and associates now come together to provide a brilliant event where his contribution to MotorSport is remembered and celebrated.

The Pukekohe Car Club would like to acknowledge to support of Rally New Zealand and their contributions to this event. We would also like to thank our main sponsor Vantage Aluminium Joinery.
