Australian Historic Road Racing Titles

Following the announcement that the Aussie Historic Titles that were
to be held at Queensland Raceway had been cancelled, it gives me great
pleasure to advise and confirm that the event has been revived.

The event will now be held at Morgan Park on the Sixth to the Ninth of October.

That’s one month on from our Q’ld champs, also at Morgan Park so it
presents a great opportunity to prepare and tune your machines for the

Thanks must go to Sheralyn McGlinchey and the Sporties team for their
determination and persistence in making this happen, despite all of
the obstacles they have had to overcome.

It’s expected that many interstate riders will attend, including
hopefully a large contingent from both West Australia and Victoria.

So fellow QEMSC members, let’s all support the 2022 Aussie titles at
Morgan Park and help to make it an enjoyable and successful event.

Remember, if you have a bike or sidecar that you intend entering and
it does not have a log book, apply as soon as possible to avoid

Best Regards.

Presidents report  July 31st 2020

Good day to my fellow personificators of pandemoniums old.

It is with much disquiet in my heart that I must report to you that we here at QEMSC HQ have made the difficult decision to cancel the September mid week state titles at Morgan Park.

I am sure that you all understand that the times we live in are such that things are changing on a daily basis and the logistics of organizing the event were becoming increasingly difficult.

On a brighter note I am happy to report that we are currently organizing a replacement race meeting for the 19th and 20th of September to be held at Carnell raceway at Stanthorpe. This will be an open meeting the details of which will become available to all shortly.

As you know we held a Test and Tune at Stanthorpe recently and it was a very successful return to the track by approximately 60 purveyors of all things 2 and 3 wheeled hysterical. I thank you all for adhering to the new Covid rules and for making the organizers jobs easier. I think it was the most difficult and stressful meeting that I have been involved in organizing and full credit must go to Rex Dell for all the hard work and many many hours of toil that he puts in to make sure that we all enjoy ourselves.

Thank you to all the volunteers and helpers that made it happen. Without you we do not race so many thanks to you all.

Special thanks to Rex Dell and Brad Phelan for spending Wednesday and Thursday and Friday at the track setting up the air bags and getting the track organized.

Thanks to Ian Milton and Gene Lopeman for getting the air bags from Lakeside without which we would not be able to run an event of any type.

Thanks to my passenger Phil “Juanel” Brown for doing the lunch run on both days for the flaggies comestibles.

I think the award for the most diligent volunteer of the weekend must go to our wonderful secretary Dawn Jarvis. Dawn spent her weekend cleaning and sanitizing the ablutions facilities so that we as a club could comply with the Covid rules. Thank you Dawn you made my weekend much more enjoyable.

So we will see you all at Stany in September for the ” I can’t believe it’s not Chilly” BIG THAW race weekend.

Stay safe and happy and remember, ” The only thing better than horsepower is MORE BLOODY HORSEPOWER” !!!!!

I know some people have already done this with no luck. Ridernet would not allow you to proceed as the event was not listed due to no permit. Please try again.If you have trouble applying for a rec licence please ring or email Simon Wadwell on 07 3281 2255 Or email him at  He is the person who knows all about Ridernet. I do not. Do not contact me.Remember to bring your PPE to comply with the Covid-19 regulations. Wash your hands and practice physical distancing. Their will be restrictions in the pits so comply with all directions from officials.Read the attached sup regs so you are familiar with the rules and regulations we have to comply with. You will have to register at the gate when you arrive AND when you leave. Armbands will be issued so we know you have signed in. If you do not wear your armband you will be evicted from the track!

Stanthorpe Test & Tune update

G’day, I hope this finds you well and in good spirits (or at least drinking some).

In the event that the travel restrictions are eased as planned by the Govt then we at QEMSC headquarters are planning to have a ‘TEST and TUNE” event at Stanthorpe in some form or another probably on the weekend of the 18th 19th of July. This date was originally the Big Chill meeting. This will not be a Race meeting.

If this event goes ahead then we would like to know how many attendees we can expect. 

What you need to do:

If you would attend the Test and Tune at Stanthorpe on the 18th and 19th of July then please shoot me an email at the address below.
If you are unable to attend then there is no need to reply.

Many thanks and stay safe.
