MGCCQ holds several different Competition Events during the year. Click each name for more information.
Some of these are:
Race Meetings - the Club has promoted at least one, but mostly two, race meetings each year. These meetings were held at Lakeside, Surfers Paradise and Queensland Raceway and are now held at Morgan Park at Warwick.
Events held in an Inter-club Challenge include events such as Night Observation run, Motorkhana, Khanacross, Touring Assembly, Skid Pan, Regularity run, and Hillclimb. Club challenges are usually open to all members of the participating clubs with an award for the best individual who competes in the same car which has to be road registered and competes in a road legal setup during each event.
The first gymkhana (now known as motorkhana) was held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. Later ones were held at Aspley but the home of gymkhanas at Porter’s Paddock at Tingalpa was the most enduring venue.
These days motorkhanas are held on bitumen at Willowbank Raceway. Sprinte Meetings are held at Warwick these days but were originally held at Strathpine, Lowood and Lakeside until it closed.
The Ironman Weekend was a popular event covering a Firdayu night Navigation Run, Motorkhana and Sprint on Saturday and a hillclimb.
Some events were then held at Lakeside with the most recent being held at Queensland Raceway, most of these recent events being part of the Ironman weekend.
Sadly, with there now being difficulties in finding venues at which to run these events, the Ironman weekend has had to be dropped from the calendar after more than 3 decades.
The Ironman weekend was a test of endurance for both competitors and officials; it consisted of a night navigation run on the Friday night, a motorkhana and sprint on the Saturday and a hillclimb on the Sunday.
Night navigation runs have been part of the Club’s list of events from the earliest of the Club’s days and continue to be held on the third Friday of each month.
