A new event based in Queensland is a strong chance to host the final round of the Australian Rally Championship in November 2020.

RallySport Magazine understands a bid has been placed for the Sunshine State to host the final round of the ARC, and potentially the winner-takes-all APRC final.

While Coffs Harbour was put forward by the FIA and scheduled to host the APRC final, significant funding is still required for this event to even run, with Motorsport Australia (formerly CAMS) and Rally Australia, who were scheduled to run the event, still non-committal.

This separate bid, from an independent promotor, is now believed to be the favourite to host the event in a new city and state.

It is believed that, if successful, the event will be based out of Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and use roads known to both championships, alongside some brand new stages.

This independent promotor is entirely separate to the Brisbane Sporting Car Club who ran the APRC round out of Imbil from 2009 to 2016, and the ARC round before that.

A finish right on the Noosa beach, and a gala end-of-year dinner is also on the cards, making the proposed event enticing for both the respective championships and competitors alike.
