RALLY Australia added a boost to business on the Coffs Coast, but profits weren't as great as some had hoped. 

That's a key finding of an independent review into the World Rally Championship event's economic impact.

The study, conducted by a Southern Cross University researcher, involved businesses in the four council areas in which the rally was hosted, the Coffs Harbour, Clarence Valley, Bellingen and Nambucca shires.

The full report will be released later today.

Further details will follow here at the Coffs Coast Advocate website throughout the afternoon.
