Attention all @Next Level Creations QRC Novice Series competitors,

Motorsport Australia State Council has approved changes to the 2021 QLD Rally Handbook that will affect the scoring of the Novice Series for 2021.

Currently Clause 6.2.1 states:
The Series will consist of four rounds.
The qualifying rounds can be selected from:
1. KCF Short Course Rally
2. The three QRC Rallies that provide a Novice Component in the event. Novice Competitors will only score points in the First Heat of the QRC Rounds. At the discretion of the event organisers Novice Competitors may be offered the opportunity to do the second heat at these events, but it will be at additional cost and will not earn points towards the Novice Series

The winners are determined by the highest scores accumulated in the best 3 out of 4 rounds (ie 1 round may be dropped, or not entered.)
A driver or co-driver cannot score points in both the Novice Series and the Clubman Series. If a driver or codriver wishes to upgrade from the Novice Series to the Clubman Series, then they will forfeit any points earned in the Novice Series”

With the cancellation of QRC 1 Manumbar Rally Clause 6.2.1 will be updated to state:

The Series may consist of four rounds.
The qualifying rounds can be selected from:
1. KCF Short Course Rally
2. The three QRC Rallies that provide a Novice Component in the event. Novice Competitors will only score points in the First Heat of the QRC Rounds. At the discretion of the event organisers Novice Competitors may be offered the opportunity to do the second heat at these events, but it will be at additional cost and will not earn points towards the Novice Series

The winners are determined by the highest scores accumulated in the best 2 out of 3 rounds (ie 1 round may be dropped, or not entered). If only 2 events are run by organisers then points from both rounds will be used for the purpose of scoring championship points and no rounds dropped.
A driver or co-driver cannot score points in both the Novice Series and the Clubman Series. If a driver or codriver wishes to upgrade from the Novice Series to the Clubman Series, then they will forfeit any points earned in the Novice Series”

#ThrowbackThursday

Event - Keema Club Rally 1996 - interesting fact, for a few years there was a club rally run on the Sunday after the Gallangowan QRC. For those who don't know Gallangowan is just down the road from Manumbar and was often the rally to close out the year, always a fun event to compete in and for the social side after the event.

Organiser - Brisbane Sporting Car Club, Clerk Of Course Craig Porter.

Photos -
White and Green Nissan Bluebird David Bates and Phil Dayman. A quick car and driver combination who set top 3 times on this event including a stage win.
White Datsun 200B Gerard McConkey and Alan Stean, still both current competitors and Gerard is the QRAP Chairperson.
Red and Yellow Holden Gemini Ken "Bonk" McWha and Debbie Dillon. Bonk was always a laugh to have around but didn't always bring the car home straight, Debbie only recently stopped competing and currently helps as an official and services for her sons.
White Datsun 1600 Paul Goodwin and Barry Goodwin who finished second in this event.
White and Black Holden Commodore Keith Callinan and Paul Tennant in the ex-Round Australia car and won the rally.
