The Mitta Mountain Rally is a blind event, i.e. no recce and no pace notes.

The event was won by the NSW crew of Tim Wilkins and Jim Gleeson in a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 9. The VRC round was won by Tim and Leonie Clark in a Subaru Impreza WRX.

In contrast to the previous year, the Mitta Mountain Rally was run in dry and dusty conditions. The event was marred by a serious incident on SS2. Reigning VRC champions Adrian Stratford and Kain Manning left the road 4.7 km from stage end at speed, and rolled many times. Ambulance, CFA and SES were called in to take the roof off the car and extract the crew in their seats. They were airlifted to Melbourne for medical treatment.
