Welcome to the third round of the first season of AOR Rally on DiRT Rally 2.0, where we'll visit Hawkes Bay, a region on the east coast of the northern island of New Zealand. The region derives it's name from Hawke Bay, named by Cpt. James Cook in honour of Admiral Edward Hawke.

The region includes hilly coastal land around the northern bay, the floodplains of the Wairoa River in the north, the wide fertile Heretaunga Plains in the south, and a hilly interior stretching up into the Kaweka and Ruahine Ranges.

Incidentally Hawkes Bay is one of the most seismically active regions in New Zealand and has experienced many large and often damaging earthquakes, so when our drivers are tackling the fast and technical stages of Hawkes Bay, they also have to be on the lookout for falling rocks due to the seismic activity.

Stage Layout
As with every other rally this season, this rally will feature 10 stages, varying from short to long, with the 10th stage being the usual power stage.
