WATCHING THE WEATHER
Are we going to be able to get there?
The road conditions for the area have most roads closed.
What's the scenario if road closures are still in place for the rally?

Experience suggests road closures come and go almost as quickly as the weather conditions change, Chris. The Flinders copped that huge storm late last week on the back of cyclone Yasi that hit far north Queensland and then just kept tracking inland. Right now a lot of roads in the Flinders are closed due to flooding and storm damage. But it's amazing just how fast the road gangs get things cleared up and access restored. We've still got a few weeks to go, so fingers crossed the weather clears and the roads dry out. Stay in touch!
