The 2017 Forest Rally will become the Make Smoking History Forest Rally, following a new multi-year deal with event sponsor Healthway.

The Make Smoking History Forest Rally will be the second round of both the CAMS Australian Rally Championship and the Onslow Contracting West Australian Rally Championship and will be held in Busselton and Nannup from April21-23

Healthway has sponsored the event since 1995.

Forest Rally Event Director, Ross Tapper said he was delighted Healthway had continued their support of the event.

“The support of Healthway – as well as our other great sponsors – allows us to expand the event year on year, ensuring we are always providing new and exciting challenges for competitors and in turn top-quality entertainment for spectators both in Busselton and the forest of Nannup,” he said.

“Healthway’s support over the past 22 years has been an integral part of the success of this event and the growth of rallying in our state and this has allowed us to showcase the very best of what Western Australia has to offer,” he continued.

The Make Smoking History campaign was established in 2000 with the aim of reducing smoking in Western Australia.

The campaign is an initiative of Cancer Council Western Australia and is jointly funded by Healthway, the Department of Health WA and Cancer Council WA.

Healthway’s Acting Executive Director, Maree De Lacey, said Healthway funding had played an important role in reducing smoking rates among WA adults to just 12.3 per cent.

“However, there is no room for complacency as smoking is still the biggest single cause of premature death and, every year, around 1,400 West Australians die before their time because they smoked,” Ms De Lacey said.

“Healthway is delighted to work with the Make Smoking History Forest Rally to promote awareness of the health benefits of being a nonsmoker.”
