The ninth annual Far Cairn Rally to Tottenham in central NSW returns in spring 2016 to raise money to help crash victims through the Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative (MARI).
So far, the BMW Touring Club of NSW has raised about $30,000 for MARI Australia through the rally, including $3550 raised last year.
The MARI program was established by St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney to support the long-term physical injuries, and social and emotional problems encountered by motorcycle crash victims.
Since then, the Dr Wings Bike Force was established to do the volunteer work of MARI (Riders Caring For Riders Programme) throughout Australian hospitals.
The 9th Far Cairn Rally will be held at Tottenham Racecourse September 16 to 18 2016. Entry cost of $25 includes a badge and breakfast on Sunday.
Bookings are not essential, but it is recommended if you also want to buy a $25 commemorative t-shirt.
Tottenham is about 120km west of Dubbo and the Centre Cairn monument is 33km out of town near Five Ways which marks the centre of NSW.
Although it is organised by the BMW Touring Club of NSW, the rally is open to all riders on any type of bike.
Organisers hope to attract up to 200 riders this year.
There are a couple of new fun awards this year, several raffles and the screening of motorcycle movies.
It is the only rally to boast two world movie premieres, including cinematographer Josh Evan’s “Eye of the Rider” movies and other video edits incorporating original and borrowed material.
