Cobb and Co Explorer Rally

Some information for all prospective entrants.

Cobb & Co Explorer Road Rally

This Historic Rally Association event will be run as a Navigation Assembly with Rally Regularity sections under a permit from Motorsport Australia in the Darling Downs region of southeast Queensland. It will consist of competition in the form of Touring Sections, which will be straightforward, untimed map reading, possibly with no manned controls but simple questions and Information Boards to be recorded along the way. In general, the answers to questions are located at VIA locations and are quite visible and obvious. The route in general follows the more minor roads as much as possible, not highways, and is very interesting and sometimes scenic.

In between the untimed road sections there will be timed Closed Road Sections (CRS) in various places. These will be Rally Regularity sections.

Cobb & Co Explorer Social Tour

The Cobb and Co explorer social tour is a non-competitive social event which will be run as a Navigation Assembly under a social permit from Motorsport Australia (formerly C.A.M.S) over two days and approximately 800 kilometers in Darling Downs region of southeast Queensland. It will consist of straightforward untimed map reading sections. There will possibly be no manned controls but simple answers to questions and information boards to be recorded along the way.

The tour is being run in conjunction with the Cobb and Co Explorer Road Rally, which is a competitive event.

The participants have a choice of two routes.

  • Route one will use the same instructions and route as the Cobb and Co Explorer Road Rally using all types of roads but excluding the closed road sections.
  • Route two follows the more minor roads as much as possible, not highways, and is very interesting and scenic. Route two will bypass a lot of the unsealed roads but will still use some good, unsealed roads from time to time
