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.

Unfortunately the quality of entry forms submitted for the Accent Benchtops Rally QLD was quite disappointing. Lots of missing information or TBA on more than 50% of entries. This puts a lot of extra strain on the Secretary chasing competitors for info.

To help QRAP has put together a form you can use to compile all your team and car details in one location which will then make a great reference tool when you next enter an event.

The form can be downloaded from the QLD Rally Website here - qldrallychampionship.com/about/
Scroll to the bottom of the page and under Competitor/Organiser/
Championship/Series Documents you will find the Event Entry Details form.

PLEASE NOTE - this will not replace entry forms. It is just a tool for competitors to use in compiling info to reference when entering events.

There's no information on those forms that CAMS don't already have....surely shld be 3 clicks....enter, upload docs (insurance, rego, road licence, self scrutiny) & pay here....or am I missing something?....seems to work for other events I enter.

Same for media information over the years. Well more than 50% don’t take the time to fill in basic information. When it comes to getting coverage, its this basic failing that ensures that organizers cant assist promoting your team.

Great idea but you might want to include a whip for the bone lazy too 😉

Yeah something needs to happen like the MA system. We shouldn’t have to enter our log book number every time, roll cage number, rego etc, these numbers never change, it’s just boring having to do all this manually when we have all this technology at our fingertips or in the palm of our hand

Just some feedback from ABRQ. The quality of the entries IS improving and it is not suggested that ABRQ2022 was bad in any way. ABRQ2021 was worse so gauged on that, entries are improving. Aside from that, my comment is this, the entry form should not be used as a placeholder to secure your position on the entry list, it's not. The placeholder is when your entry is complete including documentation & fees.This idea is great and will help you gather your information before you fill in and submit your entry form which helps the event admin from needing to email competitors continually for the missing data.

Use an online system like Jotform that will not allow the entry to be submitted without all the information?

Thanks, that's better organized than my information form.

In my day, if the form wasn’t complete, you didn’t get a run. But of course today, that would be deemed to be unfair for those with a low intellect.

You could always look at using tis system. Created by an Adelaide Motorsport family hey Emma Smith N Jones www.mymotorsport.com.au/s/

Greg Whitaker (1 't') My uncle and Alan Staib my old man in the celica....

I remember another Celica being run around that time by a crew I can't remember, my memory tells me Greg Whittaker's Celica had big flares on all four guards at that time? The Capri is maybe Greg Donald and as for the 1600.... could be one of many. Great days!

Great shots. Great rallying days.

Greg Whittaker Celica, Possibly Viv Gees in the Capri, The Datsun 1600 could be anyone as everyone had one in those days including myself.

Not too many rallying shots around from Rally Queensland but the service park was full of action. Thanks Zed Photography for sharing these images.
