Mitta Mountain stages to kick off Brendan's 2021 rally program


Tomorrow’s Mitta Mountain Rally will be the first event of the year for Brendan Reeves who will tackle the event in his Datsun 1600.

The rally will be the first championship rally held in Victoria in over 16 months and Reeves is one of 53 crews who have entered the event.  He will contest the Victorian Rally Championship component of the rally with co-driver Kate Catford alongside. This will be Catford’s second time teaming up with Reeves after she called the pacenotes for him at the Valley Stages Rally in November.

Based out of the tiny township of Mitta Mitta in North East Victoria, the Mitta Mountain Rally is a route charted event that includes 150 kilometres of competitive stages. 

Despite never contesting the rally before, Reeves is one of the three favourites for the event and his 2WD Datsun will have some stiff competition in the form of Franco Liucci’s Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and Cary Seabrook’s Subaru Impreza WRX.


Reeves has spent the past few months fine tuning the Datsun with the aim of having it 100% perfect for the Alpine Rally in December.

Last time the event ran, in 2019, crews had to battle with temperatures in the high 30s but cooler temperatures and a slight chance of rain this weekend should make it much more comfortable in the driver’s seat.

Crews will start from the Mitta Recreation Reserve at 8.30am on Saturday (20 March). The morning stages will take competitors north east through Cravensville towards Koetong, followed by stages over Mt Benambra and then south towards Mt Wills.

The first crews are expected to finish from 4pm and a presentation function will be held at Darmouth Pub on Saturday night.
