Rally Queensland is all go for 2024!

Thanks again to club sponsor Subaru Australia and to the folks from Motorsport Australia, who are organising the Australian Rally Championship, we've been invited to come along and spectate at Rally Queensland (at Gympie) as guests of Subaru Australia and the ARC.

We'll be spending some time with Subaru rally stars Dean Herridge and Molly Taylor, getting a blow by blow update on the drivers' performance in the Championship.

We will muster in North Brisbane in the morning and head up to the Rally as a group, with representatives of Subaru.

Full Details for this event will be given closer to the date.
When: 29th June 2024, 7am
Where: Meet at BP Caboolture (Northbound), Lot 28-29 Bruce Hwy, Caboolture 4510

When: Friday 5 July 2024 @ 7am

Where: Lakeside Raceway, Kurwongbah QLD

What: “Bronze by the Lake”

Price: $100 (all attendees: member & non-member)

With the support of Subaru Australia, members of the WRX Club of Queensland have been invited to participate in “Bronze by the Lake”, along with the Ferrari Club of Queensland and the HSV Club of Queensland.

This is a track day at Lakeside Raceway. We are informed that participants should expect the equivalent of around 5 “Happy Laps” sessions out on track (ie approximately 5 sessions of 20-30 mins duration).

The well-known former police drag cars “Cop This” and “Cop That” will be in attendance and some drivers may have an opportunity to participate in roll-racing against these vehicles.
There may also be a khanacross style driving course available, but this is to be confirmed.

What is certain is that for the price of your ticket this will be one of the best value track days of your life. There will also be a show and shine, food trucks and the usual fun of a day out amongst car enthusiasts.

Naturally, as with all events the Committee of the WRX Club of Queensland and the event organisers reserve the right to remove (without refund) any attendee who fails to abide by safety directives.

This event raises funds for “Blue Hope”, which is a charity for fallen officers of the QPS. The Club will be present at their invitation and with the support of Subaru Australia. Because it is a charity fundraiser we are not able to discount tickets for members.

The RULES

* No door to door racing.
* No official timing.
* No more than 3 cars on the track at one time. Depending on how the day is going and driver attitude, we may allow more on the track as the day progresses.
* Laps will be starting from a standing start on the starting pad you will be waved on to the track where you will complete 1 standing lap and 2 flying laps (this may be changed throughout the day depending on the general feeling - 3 laps is a good place to start as cars don't get too hot).
* When you are shown the chequered flag, your run has ended. This could be the end of your run, it could be a problem with your car or it could be a problem on the track. If you think you were shown the flag or are even not sure it was meant for you, GET OFF THE TRACK!!! THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE ON THIS, AND A SINGLE BREACH YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.
* DANGEROUS DRIVING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.
* STRICTLY PAID DRIVER ONLY (to Drive).
* Helmets, Neck to Wrist to Ankle nonflammable clothes, Enclosed footwear.
* Current Civil Driver’s License Required
* Passenger laps you can bring people out for a spin (they will have to have Helmets, Neck to Wrist to Ankle nonflammable clothes)
* There is no need to rush at the start of the day - I can guarantee that there will be times when there is only one car on the track (and sometimes none) so you will get plenty of lap time.

Notice of Annual General Meeting
Impreza WRX Club of Queensland Limited

When: 12.30pm, Sat 16 September 2022
Where: "The Big Kart Track", adjacent to Willowbank Raceway, Champions Way, Willowbank QLD 4306.
[This is where we hold the Dirt Day]

Agenda:
- Financial report
- Adoption of auditor’s report on financial affairs
- Election of Management Committee
- Appointment of Auditor

In recent years the AGM was held at JRM Auto Garage, Southport. This year the AGM will be held concurrent with the Club's Dirt Day. As usual it will be accompanied by a BBQ lunch.

In accordance with the Club’s Constitution, all Committee members come to the end of their term at the AGM and are eligible for re-election. Any financial member of the Club is also eligible for nomination. At present some Committee members are covering multiple roles and expressions of interest to come onto the Committee and help plan the Club’s affairs are welcomed from anyone who is keen to assist.

The committee ordinarily consists of the following roles:
- President
- Vice-president
- Secretary
- Treasurer
- Membership Officer
- Merchandise Officer (position currently vacant)
- IT Officer
- Motorsport Officer
- Social co-ordinator

Our long standing treasurer, Steph Muston, and her partner, Alan Weinert (membership & motorsport), have indicated that they will not be standing for re-election. So we are especially keen to hear from anyone who might be interested in filling these roles. Steph and Alan have kindly offered to stay on as deputies in these roles, to assist the transition to new committee members.

Deputy positions can also be created so that you can get to know the ropes.

Rule 12.3 requires that two members nominate any person wishing to stand for election in writing prior to 14 days before the AGM and the person nominated to accept the nomination. If no nominations are received for any position, we can accept nominations on the day of the AGM. As always, we’re very keen to have whatever help we can get. If you’d like to have an informal chat about the possibility of being involved and what that is likely to entail please get in touch.

Please RSVP for catering purposes.
