Former ARC Junior Cup winner, Ryan Williams, will head the field away in his Subaru Impreza WRX followed by veteran Ian Menzies (Lancer Evo 9), Erik Johnsson (Subaru WRX) and another Lancer Evo 9 in the hands of Glenn Brinkman.

Clay Badenoch will be the first to start in a two-wheel drive car, his Toyota Celica seeded fifth, eight spots ahead of the next rear-drive machine, the Datsun 200B of Gary Dutton.

Crews will be challenged on eight stages in the Nanango, Elgin Vale and Gallangowan State Forest areas with a mixture of old and new roads used.

“I would like to give particular thanks to Shaun and the APX Suspension team for their considerable support of and leading up to the event, as well as to every single official, competitor, and supporter who has worked cooperatively with myself and the Brisbane Sporting Car Club,” Clerk of the Course, Iain Robertson, said.

“While it has been a challenging ride to get to this point, I and my team of over 140 volunteers look forward to welcoming 30 crews to an event with a slightly different format to recent events.

Clay Badenoch will be in his popular Toyota Celica.

“The weather looks to be favourable, the roads are in great condition, and we now have everything we need for this to be a great start to the QRC season.

“Competitors will enjoy a mix of old favourites and rarely used roads, many of which have had recent work undertaken thanks to our long time supporters, HQ Plantations.”

Thirty crews will start the day from the Nanango Showgrounds, returning there three times for refuels and services. Crews will then head north for the second heat, with a remote refuel midway at Elgin Vale; followed by the final service at the Manumbar Campdraft Grounds.

The event finishes at the Manumbar Campdraft Grounds with the event presentation at 6pm. Competitors in the Acworth Recruitment Clubman Series will also take part in this event alongside competitors in the WSC Novice Series.
