QORC heads North
Friday, 15 June 2012
The Queensland Off Road Championship heads to Far North Queensland to the Retreat Station track at Mackay for the Opposite Lock Mackay Retreat 200 on the weekend of 30th June and 1st July.

The organizers are hoping for a bumper crowd of competitors and spectators for the inaugural state round being held 65km west of Mackay. “We really are hoping this can be a family event” says club president Errol Younger. “We have a little something for everyone, displays by our major sponsor Opposite Lock Mackay, and Redline Honda, a jumping castle for the kids, food and entertainment at the pub and of course lots of off road racing”.

With little racing in the states south so far for 2012 with weather causing the cancellation of events, the Mackay Off Road Racing Club are hoping for a good showing from their southern cousins and supporting the inaugural Championship round.

The Retreat Hotel is located close to the track and have confirmed live entertainment for Saturday night and buffet breakfast starting at 4am both days.

While the region has had some rain in the last month, it has not seen the amount that has been seen in the south of the state. “Our track is looking great after extensive works to fill some gullies and widen areas, and the recent rain has only settled it further” says Younger.

Scrutiny and reconnaissance will take place on Friday with racing starting at 7.30am Saturday and Sunday.
