Car rally is set for a flying start


RPPFM’s car rally is off to a flying start with its first official registrants – Neil and Marg Williams, of Mornington.

The couple are the first residents to embrace the fundraising fever at the station and will display the prized 01 number which designates their start position on rally day: Sunday 7 October.

“We used to do car rallies all the time – they are so much fun,” Mr Williams said. “When we saw RPPFM’s car rally we just had to enter.”

Participants will tune into 98.3FM to receive clues on the day. “I think you’ll really feel part of a live action event,” said Ms Williams.

“We’ve told all our friends and are looking forward to making a day of it.”

Race entry is $50 per car which includes a gift pack on the day. The station is fundraising for equipment and maintenance at the station.

The rally course will wind its way from the station in Wilsons Road, Mornington, taking in local sights and collecting clues and solving puzzles. Lunch will be available at the destination along with prizes for entrants and a jazz afternoon at The Red Hill Baker, Balnarring. All welcome.
