QLD: Border Ranges Rally
- 26th March 2007, 10:30am
The event ran for the first time last year as an alternative to the usual forest venues in south-east Queensland, and was extremely well received.
Clerk-of-Course for the event is Michelle Gatton, ably supported by a team of enthusiastic helpers from the Gold Coast club and for 2007, the event will be a round of the Silverstone Competition Tyres Gemini Series and the Silverstone Tyres Pocket Rocket Rally Series.
Using both shire and forestry roads, competitors will face 78 competitive kilometres and just under 100 kilometres of liaison roads. 2.7km will be on a bitumen surface.
Urbenville is located about 150 kilometres from Brisbane, and camping facilities are available at Rally HQ in Urbenville, but hotel/motel accommodation in the area is rather limited.
Catering will be available at Rally HQ by the Urbenville Progress Society from 12.00 midday to 11pm, and for breakfast again on Sunday morning.
Last year, reports of sub-zero overnight temperatures made camping something of an adventure, and so the shift to the April date is expected to relieve much of the anxiety over cold toes and frozen beers left out of the Esky!
The sponsor is once again Jason Delaney, who has continued his support of the event with a new business name ‘1300NEWGLASS’. Other support comes from Jason Ruse of Queensland Mobile Safety Certificates and Graham Kemp from Advance Technology Concepts.
The entry fee is $275 and entries open today, with closing date April 18.
Supplementary Regulations will be posted soon, but enquiries can be directed to Event Secretary John Hayden on 0424 206548 (business hours) or 0409 486986 (A/H). A maximum of 40 starters may be applied, so get in early.
