New title sponsor for 2023 Queensland Rally Championship


It is a new year and a new sponsor for the Queensland Rally Championship as the Queensland Rally Advisory Panel welcomes KickAss Products to the fold.

Undoubtedly the name is a mouthfull but it has some potential street cred with the The 2023 KickAss Motorsport Australia Queensland Rally Championship.

The 2023 season will feature three rounds, with the second round sharing with the Australian Rally Championship. While some may wish for more rounds, the challenges the series faces are strong with restricted use of forestry in Queensland and a lack of suitable roads proving to be significant barriers. Recent natural disasters including both fires and floods have been overcome to put on a 2023 Championship.

As for the new sponsor, KickAss is an Australian owned company that sells things from batteries to solar panels, fridges, and inverters to showers and outdoor entertainment, along with a range of 12v accessories like camp ovens and jaffle makers (yes, you read that right!!) KickAss has everything you need for your next adventure. Check out their full range of products online

KickAss Products General Manager Aaron Cotton says “KickAss is excited for the opportunity to sponsor this year’s QLD Rally Championship. Power solutions are at the core of our business but we are an adventure company. We strive to help people follow their passions, find adventure and live their dreams. We hope this partnership will provide new opportunities for Qld Rally Australia to grow and thrive. We are here to power this adventure.”

Furthermore  QLD Rally Advisory Panel Chairperson Matthew Sosimenko says “It is great to have a national company like KickAss involved as a major sponsor for the 2023 Motorsport Australia Queensland Rally Championship. With rally participation in Queensland increasing every year across all levels, it is great to work with a business like KickAss to further increase the profile of the sport. Hopefully, this will lead to more competitors as well as get more people to volunteer their time and help run events.”

The 2023 KickAss Motorsport Australia Queensland Rally Championship consists of 3 rounds which will be part of the following events;

March 25th Roos Systems Australia Manumbar Rally
July 22nd Accent Benchtops Rally Queensland
September 9th Rally Imbil
