Newton Rally 2019 - Repco Reliability Retrial

By Kathryn Smythe Join Me

I'm raising funds for Backpack Bed for Homeless

2019 Repco Reliability Retrial

In August 2019, over 50 historic rally cars will be competing in the Repco Reliability Retrial, celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the original 1979 REPCO Reliability Trial. Set to depart from the Melbourne Showground on 5 August then head clockwise around Australia, finishing back in Melbourne on Sunday 1 September, it will be an amazing adventure over 26 days and 14,500 kms. 

We will be competing in our 1980 Holden Commodore which is a replica of the Holden Dealer Team Commodores that originally competed in this event.  It is well seasoned having previously competed in the London to Cape Town Rally and Africa Safari back in 2012 and 2014.  It will be a family affair with Greg’s wife Liz and two of his daughters, Katie and Nickie, each competing on a major leg of the rally. Acutely aware of the challenges facing homeless people of all ages across Australia, the team Newton is setting out to raise $5000, or about 50 backpack beds for Australian's in need.
