Rally directors

2 - Unnamed

Arthur and Kim Davis are long-time directors of the Kidney Kar Rally.

Arthur has been a car rally enthusiast for more than 40 years, both as a competitor and as a director. He has been involved in organising many rallies for the Bathurst Light Car Club and the Wynn’s/Australian Safari, and has competed in International Southern Cross Rallies, the London to Sydney Marathon, the Repco Round Australia Reliability Trial, NSW State Championships, the Mobil Round Australia Rally and the AMSAG Rally Series.

Kim has been a service crew member for many of the rallies Arthur has been involved with, as well as helping with or organising the administration side of events, the most demanding being the NSW State Rally Championship of 2000. It was around that time that Arthur and Kim became involved with the Kidney Kar Rally as Rally directors.

Before each Rally, the couple do a huge amount of preparation, studying maps of the areas to be travelled, liaising with property owners and farmers, State Forestry officers, National Park rangers and government bodies to secure permits, and then driving back and forth over the areas to chart the course.

They publicise the Rally in all the areas to be travelled, organise all the catering for the event, book accommodation for the officials and send out to the participants a list of available places to stay along the route.

A major undertaking is preparation of the participants’ Road Book, which contains instructions and details of all the roads and tracks travelled.

There’s also a considerable amount of administration, from answering enquiries from prospective entrants, recording entries, and keeping accurate accounts of the funds raised by each participant.

Under the direction of Arthur and Kim, the Kidney Kar Rally can be rightfully proud of its continuing popularity and unblemished safety record.
