Cobb and Co Explorer Road Rally

19-20 June.  A round of the Resto country Spares Standard Car Class.

The Cobb and Co is a two day event consisting of navigation sections and some Closed road sections similar to the Western Tours of old.

The event starts in Oakey on the darling downs on Saturday the 19th June 2021 and ends there on Sunday the 20th June 2021. We overnight in Oakey on Saturday Night.

It is a long event and I rely on navigators to make their own mistakes. No diabolical navigation but pure map reading with no grid references to plot. Some VIA points are marked on the map and some are described i.e., closest road junction to Mocattas corner. We are not using that one, but I have filled it away for future reference.

Day one travels from Oakey North East across the Downs skirting the Bunya mts to Yarraman where the Yarraman Heritage assn. will provide lunch. After lunch its off into a small forest for some closed road sections then up over the Bunya mts and across the Downs back to Oakey.

Sunday once again it’s off to the north east and across to Goombungee and the CWA ladies will supply a CWA lunch then south across the highway then south west finding the old railway stations along the Cecil Plains – Oakey railway line. South almost to Pittsworth then returning to Oakey.

Sounds easy but wait, there’s more. The maps are the same maps that I used back in the 70s when we rallied on shire roads. The roads are still there but there are new unmapped roads to keep you honest. No diabolical navigation but a challenge. Just follow the turns. . Although old they are extremely accurate regarding the mapped roads.

The supp. regs were lodged with Motorsport Australia a few weeks ago. They will be on the HRA website as soon as we get the OK
