Queensland Automotive Parts and Motorsport Promotions business, GSL RallySport, is spearheading the introduction of the series locally.
“Having seen first hand the enormous coverage and enthralling battles that this unique format generates in other states, it was too good to ignore!” said GSL RallySport’s Greg Latham. “The series provides a unique opportunity to combine both great competition, and outright spectacle, whilst still maintaining its low cost appeal.”
The series also has support from both Hyundai, and Motorsport Solutions Australia, who have partnered the series in assisting competitors with the preparation, build and safety of their vehicles.
The series also has welcome support from Hyundai A-League team, the Queensland Roar, in promoting the series with its season launch at Suncorp Stadium.
The Excel series is contested over five rounds of the Queensland Rally Championship and is one of the most challenging in the country.
