This Saturday, Queenslanders will be revving their engines in the Central Queensland town of Byfield, north of Yeppoon. Like many other states it has been a long wait for the return of rallying. Central Qld Motor Sport Club have pulled together a stellar effort to negotiate Queensland government COVID-19 restrictions and Motorsport Australia guidelines to produce an event very quickly. “We want everyone to go out and have some fun in the forest,” said Clerk of Course Clay Weston. “The rally will be a simple low-key multi-club event, we’ve got 120km of competitive stages including a couple at night.” Adding to the event will be Round 1 of the 2020 Queensland Novice Rally Series. Gerard McConkey Queensland Rally Panel Chair added: “It’s a developmental series introduced to encourage new competitors and provide them with suitable events to build their confidence and experience prior to progression to the Queensland Clubman Rally Series and later to the Queensland Rally Championship.” There is an equal mix of genders amongst the six novice drivers entered, with the rally attracting a field of 22 cars in total. Some of the crews are new combinations or in cars on debut, using the rally as an opportunity to compete prior to the Queensland Rally Championship kicking off. The 2020 Qld Novice Rally Series is a best 3 out of 4 rounds with the remaining rounds scheduled: • 1 August - KCF Rallysport Short Course Rally – Benarkin • 19 September - Hinterland Rally – Imbil • 31 October – Roo Systems Manumbar Rally – Manumbar Due to the restrictions placed on the event there will be no spectating available, however volunteers will be welcomed by contacting the CQMSC prior to event.
