QRC 2 – Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland
Dear Rally Colleagues
It is my great pleasure to welcome you the 2021 iteration of Rally Queensland, a name synonymous with Australian Rallying for well over 20 years. This year’s event is brought to you by the generous courtesy of Glenn Brinkman whose company, Accent Benchtops kindly accepted the offer to become naming rights sponsor.
This year’s Rally Q will be held in the forests to the west of Gympie which have not heard the crackle bang and pop of rally cars for many years. Gympie is the centre of a large provincial area in South East Queensland, some two hours north of Brisbane, and is equipped with all the facilities and amenities to make it the ideal centre of the Queensland round of the RSEA Australian Rally Championship.
In recognition of the importance of such a high profile, national event coming to their region, the Gympie Regional Council have also come on board as a major supporting sponsor and have kindly offered the Gympie Showgrounds as the focal point of the event, incorporating Rally Headquarters and the central Service Park, right in the middle of the City.
The 2021 Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland will be a Sprint Event for ARC competitors, featuring just over 160km of competitive stages in a total event distance under 400km. Three stages will be run twice each day, with Saturday’s stages being different to Sunday’s.
My Team are largely experienced in developing and running major rallies, and almost all personnel on the Event Sporting Council have had many years involvement with the FIA WRC at Coffs Harbour.
The event will also incorporate a round of the 2021 Motorsport Australia Queensland Rally Championship where entrants will be able to test their skills against their ARC compatriots on Saturday, and to continue running on Sunday if they so wish to do so in a non-championship category.
As with all events run under the auspices of Motorsport Australia, we are subject to their COVID-19 Protocols, as well as those imposed by the Queensland Government. We have an experienced and dedicated COVID-19 Compliance Manager who is working hard to ensure we comply with all requirements, and we ask competitors to be understanding and compliant when asked by event officials to complete relevant documentation to assist us to meet those requirements.
I do intend to catch up with you all at our event, and to thank you for making the effort to come to sunny Queensland, where it’s “Magic One Day, and Perfect the Next”!
