Hen and Chicken Lane, Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia.

Typical Club Level Gravel Special Stage in Australia.

Made with btb v7.3/3dsimed

Further info: This stretch of Rally heaven runs from the Bathurst-Goulburn road near Perthville to the Bathurst-Blayney road, running behind Mt Panorama.

From the start the road climbs with a rapid series of curves to a high point about 1km from the start. This section demands accurate throttle control, particularly with higher-powered cars, but if done correctly it is a succession of exhilarating controlled slides and drifts under power.

From the high point of the road, there are some good lengths of straight or gently curved road to the finish near the Blayney Road. Speeds here can be very high, one of the fastest sections of road the club regularly uses for rallies, and many cars have exceeded 200kph on this section.

Records have not been officially kept, but unofficially the fastest average speed times recorded have been as follows:

1990: Rod Jones and Mark Blume VR4 133.74kph.

1999: Mick Myers and Peter Harris Celica GT4 132.62

2000: Shawn Urquhart and Vivek Samy 129.93

1994: Michael Guest and Darren Green Mitsubishi Lancer RSE. 128.91

1986: Fastest 2WD recorded: Greg Brown and Arthur Davis Datsun 1600 127.35 -

an extraordinary achievement for a two-wheel drive car.

Deceptively peaceful... Hen and Chicken Lane has been described by competitors as being the best stretch of rally road in Australia.
