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.

We can’t wait to be rallying in Gympie again!

Thank you to the Mayor, the Gympie Regional Council and the local community for welcoming us into your home town ❤️A message from the Mayor

You might have seen an earlier post on our Facebook page teasing the announcement of Rally Gympie Region.

After dotting the last couple i’s and crossing the final t, I am pleased to announce council’s new brand, Rally Gympie Region.

Rally Gympie Region encompasses a series of events that celebrates the RSEA Safety Australian Rally Championship returning to our region from 22-24 July.

Rally Gympie Region is part of this Council’s plan to position the region as the home of this year’s Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland, with the larger goal of attracting future rally events to the area in the coming years.

There are so many benefits of hosting the Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland, including the influx of thousands of visitors to our region, the exposure the television coverage from Channel 7 will bring to the area, and the economic benefits our local traders will receive from the various events planned during the weekend.
Speaking of the events, here is what council has planned for Rally Gympie Region this year:
- Wheels on Mary, Friday July 22 – Mary Street Gympie
- Rally Village, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July –Gympie Showgrounds
- The Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July

After all the community has been through this year, Rally Gympie Region is a chance to come together.

The economic impact of the rally will be significant with drivers, their crew and fans all spending money at local businesses. This is a fantastic opportunity that we can work with rally Queensland to capitalise on.

Furthermore, this year’s Wheels on Mary event promises to be so much bigger than last year. In addition to having over 80 rally cars pack Mary Street, The Gympie Chamber of Commerce will be opening the bottom end of the street to include live entertainment, food vendors, rides for the kids, classic cars, and loads more. Council are working closely with the Gympie Chamber of Commerce to combine the rally cars with all the fun of Winter Trees on Mary to create one super event that this region won’t soon forget. If you missed last year’s street party, I recommend you check out Wheels on Mary this year as it will have something for everyone, not just motor enthusiasts.

Council will continue to provide more information about what you can expect at the Rally Village and this year’s Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland in the days and weeks to come.

I encourage residents and visitors to the come to the Gympie region during July to watch one of the premier motorsport competitions in the country and I hope you enjoy everything that Rally Gympie Region has to offer.

I would give anything for a run in my old car, sadly Tony is no longer with us.

Graham Clark's navigator would have probably been either Phil McLochlin or Greame Offer

Renault Rallye Sportife? Something French Car Club organised? Feel like I see Renault on the door.

Got any photos of David Feron, they would be much clearer due to his lower speed?
