Queensland RallY Championship

Here’s A little Bit about us and our history

The Queensland Rally Championship (QRC) has a long and celebrated history dating back to 1963. The main Championship and its support categories cater to a wide and diverse range of people from all walks of life, who enjoy the love of cars and getting out into the bush. 

From 1960’s VW Beetles, a variety of 70’s Mazda’s and 90’s & 00’s Mitsubishi and Subaru vehicles, the QRC has been won by many different cars. Some crews use the QRC to just have fun on the weekend. Others have used it as a stepping stone to bigger things. Some have even gone on to win the Australian Rally Championship outright or class. 

In the near 60-year history of the QRC, there have been nearly 40 different winners for both Drivers and Co-Drivers. One person has won both a Driver and Co-Driver, and a father and son have won the Drivers’ Championship in different years. 

Today’s Championship sees a range of different vehicles entered from older Toyotas and Datsuns to cheap to run Hyundai Excel’s and 4WD Mitsubishi and Subaru cars. All cars compete across the differing Championships and Series from Novice and Juniors to the outright competitors aiming for the Championship win. 

A sport for everyone, we love hearing from old and new participants so get in touch.

I can think of 20 off the top of my head. From Jim Reddiex to Tony Best and many many others

I can think of someone who to me was the epitome of what rallying should be. A self made guy, did it all with his own ingenuity. Who helped probably MOST people involved in rallying at the time in one way or another. One of few people I threw the keys to my Stanza as zero car in a rally I directed and said just go and have fun and he did just that. Someone with an absolute never give up spirit, how many people have, or would drive a Sprinter BACKWARDS around the Mt Cootha ARC final stage, then all the way to the Brisbane finish line with no forward gears.

So many people very deserving ... This should have been done years ago. I would start with the early yrs and recognise those whether alive or not. Maybe have an initial group of say 10 then add to it each yr. Look forward to nominating a few legends👍

Tonight's viewing is from Hayden Riethmuller and Natasha Newman.

Hayden and Natasha are new competitors taking part in the Virtual Security Guard Novice Series in their Hyundai Lantra. They finished 7th in the Novice Series at the Globe Roamer Pty Ltd III Rally in Imbil, and all with a loose ball joint that had them holding back a little. Check out their run through Stage 2 - Amamoor Reverse below.
Great work team 👏👏

Do you have video's of the Globe Roamer III Rally to share? Send us a PM with the details.
