Presidents report 3rd October 2020

Well hello there once again.

I hope this finds you all well and neither locked up or down at the present time.

The Big Thaw has been run and won and has been deemed a great success .
Thank you to all who attended and a special thanks go to all the volunteers and officials without whom we would not be able to flog the living daylights out of our precious motorcycles. Thank you to all concerned. A special thanks goes to Rex Dell who did a sterling job under extreme pressure and ensured that the weekend went off without a hitch. (Well there were a couple of small hitches but nothing major. Well there was one major hitch but we managed to get over that one and timing is over rated anyway.) And now onwards and upwards to our next great adventure. 

The Queensland Historic Road Racing Championships to be held at Morgan Park Warwick 10th - 11th November 2020.

This event is rushing at us like a Konig sidecar and due to the tireless work of a small band of dedicated idiots will no doubt be a meeting to remember. Of all the race meetings I have ever attended this will be by far the most recent.

We need volunteers to help in all areas and if you are available please contact either Rex Dell or Myself and we will allocate you a job. All help will be greatly appreciated. 


Please get your entries in ASAP for this meeting, as we need to know numbers as early as possible. We have 33 entries at this point in time and there is a lot of interest from riders in NSW and with the border restrictions being eased this augers well for a good turnout.


Well that’s it from me.Thank you all for your attention and always remember that the only thing better than horsepower is MORE F#$*&ING HORSEPOWER !!!!!!!

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" !!!!!

Stanthorpe Test & Tune update

Finally, after two weeks of trying, we have been issued with a permit for the Test & Tune at Stanthorpe. I suppose that is MQ operating at their best!

Please send your entries to me asap.Due to the delay in issuing the permit I will accept late entries up to the Saturday morning.If you need your rec licence, you will have to apply on Ridernet. 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!

Just remember, it is a ride day so have FUN!

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.
