Surfer Courtney boards Coffs rally line-up

Triple Australian Ironwoman champion Courtney Hancock is set to make a splash as the ambassador for Coates Hire Rally Australia (10 - 13 September).

One of Australia’s top surfers, Hancock will help promote the 10th round of the FIA World Rally Championship at activities leading up to the Coffs Harbour-based event.

While rallying is a new sport for Hancock, she will be literally at home welcoming rally visitors to New South Wales. She grew up in the beach town of Sawtell, 8km from Coffs Harbour, and started her surfing career on the local beaches.

“I’m so excited to be representing the biggest sporting event that has ever come to my home region and having the opportunity to help showcase the Coffs Coast, the rally and my own sport of ironwoman racing to the WRC’s huge global following,” she said.

“I personally can’t wait for all the stars and cars and their supporters and the international media to arrive here in September and hopefully even to get a ride in a rally car. It’s going to be exciting.”
