This is the third generation of association with Maiden City and the Eakin family, which began in the mid 1970’s when Mr. Jack Eakin of Eakin Bros. hosted and sponsored a number of Maiden City MC events from their then, new Maydown base.”

In terms of the rally itself, all change! With final preparations underway, the set-up team are very busy with this new layout in the revised MJM Shackleton complex. With this completely new course, it will be challenging for all competitors, as everything has been changed from what has gone before. Although the drivers and navigators will see the few familiar landmarks, they will be in a totally new perspective. Even the start and finish location are different! Every week-end from Easter until the event on the 21st has been taken up with placing 800 cones, placing 60 bales, and setting up the 29 locations. All from a voluntary team – a big effort, and I thank their dedication.”
