A look back at the QRC Future Auto Rally


The Future Auto Rally represents the start of the Queensland Rally Season. Held in the forests of Jimna, it is a chance for the crews to shake down their cars, try new things and to let people new to the sport (or returning) to have a go in the forest.

It is also a chance to raise money and awareness for brain cancer with the Mike’s Toughest Rally and the fight against GBM Brain Cancer.

We are looking forward to another great Queensland Rally Championship season!

There were many positives from the event including Kim Acworth’s new Subaru (affectionately known as Bruce) – with quite at sound!

Thanks Ryan Preston.
