Yowie Country Rally Cancelled
Early last week the Gold Tweed Motorsporting Club Inc. approached the Queensland Rally Panel regarding concerns it had with a severe lack of people willing to commit to the organisation of the Yowie Country Rally. The documentation for the event was in hand and the Police permit already procured. The Kyogle Council is in possession of the required documents for the event to proceed. However, many of the positions on the organising committee were left unfilled and there were extremely few offers of assistance with the lead up work for the event.
The Executive and the Clerk of the Course were left with no alternative than to request the Queensland Rally Panel cancel the event and ask State Council to ratify the decision. The following communique was posted on the Queensland Rallying Facebook page.
Urgent Advice to competitors from the Queensland Rally Advisory Panel regarding the 2016 Queensland Novice Rally Series
Competitors in the 2016 Queensland Novice Rally Series should note that as a result of a recent report to the Queensland Rally Advisory Panel from the Gold Coast Tweed Motorsporting Club, the proposed Yowie Country Multi Club Rally which was to be run on 22 October 2016 cannot proceed. This Rally was listed as the 5th and final round of the 2016 Queensland Novice Rally Series (QNS).
As there were no viable options to continue with the running of this event, Queensland State Council Executive has approved a recommendation from the Queensland Rally Advisory Panel that the GCTMC Multi Club Rally to be held on 22 October 2016 be cancelled and that the 5th round of the QNS also be cancelled.
This means that the 2016 QNS will now consist of only 4 rounds and that the P3 Solutions Benarkin Rally (QRC 5 and QNS 4) will be the final 2016 round of the QNS.
Registered QNS competitors are urged to ensure that their entry in the P3 Solutions Benarkin Rally is lodged before close of entries on the afternoon of Monday 12 September 2016 in order to have the final opportunity to score points in 2016.
Should you have any problems with your entry please contact the Secretary of the Event (Mr Eugene Childs) on the number in the P3 Solutions Benarkin Rally Supplementary Regulations or Paul Woodward, Chair of the Queensland Rally Advisory Panel on 0438 014 918.
The Executive wishes to thank both the Queensland Rally Panel and the Queensland State Council Executive for their prompt processing of the matter.
