Competitive Special Stages are located in the Proserpine and Bowen areas and we have the Service Park (or Rally Pits) in the Proserpine Showgrounds.
The Rally is a golden opportunity for anyone to become an official and help out in one of a number of roles including being part of one of the 5 Special Stage time control and Start teams, Radio tracking officials and road closure officials on the routes of the stages and Safety officials to look after the public spectators at our two spectator points.
