Get your engines racing this weekend when world-class motorsport action revs up Pomona at the Brakes Direct International Rally of Queensland on May 26 and 27.

Up to 90 cars, including crews from as far away as Britain, Sweden, India, Malaysia and Japan and from around Australia, will tackle a competition stage on closed public roads near the town.

On Saturday, also market day, the cars will stop in an area beside Station St for 15 minutes each in a rolling visit from around 11am, before heading to the start of the BP Ultimate Special Stage.

You are free to walk among the cars and meet the drivers and co-drivers. The rally parking area will be around 100m from the markets, which are in Memorial Ave.

Tickets bought at the gate, or before the bus is boarded in Pomona will cost $25 and children’s tickets will be $5.

Information about the full range of spectating options, including a $45 all-venues Event Super Pass, is available at

The BP Ultimate Special Stage and town stopover will be part of an exciting weekend for dedicated enthusiasts and casual spectators alike.

The rally kicks off on Friday night, May 25 with a free outdoor Start Your Engine party at Kings Beach, Caloundra.

A 15-minute service stopover for all cars follows at Kenilworth early on Saturday morning, before the field tackles the Special Stages at Imbil and Pomona.
