Seeding -

All Brackets will be seeded on their reaction time in their first qualifier (except QDRC Comp Bike, which will be seeded as per IHRA rules). The relevant cut offs for brackets will still apply eg. Junior Dragster 8.00 – A/JD, 8.60 – B/JD, 12.00 – C/JD. If you run quicker than your respective cut off you will be placed at the bottom of the field regardless of your reaction time. Super Street 10.00

Qualifying for the Final Round ONLY will be as per the Australian IHRA rules and not seeded by the reaction time in their first qualifier.

In the case of more than one bye run, due to breakage or no show, Willowbank officials have the right to pair up regardless of seeding sheets. In the event of multiple breakages requiring unscheduled bye runs to be paired, the highest qualified competitor, that has not already had a bye run, from the unscheduled bye runs will be awarded the bye for that round.

Lane Choice: Comp Bike lane choice in the 1st round will go to the higher qualified competitor, for all other rounds it will go to the competitor furtherest under or closest to their QDRC record from their previous round of racing. For all other bracket’s lane choice in the 1st round will go to the higher qualified competitor, for all other rounds it will go to the competitor with the lowest dial in for that round. 

 

We have introduced 2 new bonus components to the QDRC for 2021

 

Drop A Round – QDRC Outlaws and QDRC Comp Bike excluded

If there is no more than one rained out event during the season, each competitors' points tally will have their worst round removed from their total point score.

  • Non-attendance at a round will count as 0 points round.
  • This will be done in the office prior to the final round and updated on the website

 

Play the JOKER

Each competitor will be able to nominate one round as their JOKER round, where any points that they earn at that round of the series will be doubled (e.g. 3 wins and a final win = 25, using your Joker will be doubled so x 2 = 50 total points)

  • Each competitor must nominate in advance (by entry close date) if they will use their Joker at that round
  • Each competitor using their Joker for a round will be displayed on the pre-entry list.
  • We will supply you with a Joker sticker for you to place on your vehicle for that round only
  • The Joker is only valid for one round and once it is nominated by you it cannot be changed
  • The Joker must be used at a round before the final (it cannot be used at the final round)

Entry ticket process

Getting your tickets

 

  • Log onto our website and go to your members area and click ‘Racers’ it goes to ‘My Entries’ page, this will show the events you have entered into.

 

  • There is a tab ‘Crew Passes’ next to the event you have entered click on this; it will take you to a page that has all your tickets (included driver/rider and purchased ones)

 

  • You must share your extra tickets (1 ticket is yours) with your crew/spectators (this can be sent via mobile phone number or email address), they will be required to fill out their details including the COVID questions and then they will receive the e-ticket

 

  • Each person (including driver/rider) will need to have their e-ticket in their name to scan through the gate. This can either be printed or on a smartphone

 

  • You the driver/rider will still need to collect your envelope at the gate, this will have your entry form in it to fill out and take to scrutineering

 

We do not need contact tracing forms for you and your crew, we will have everyone’s details scanned into the system on race day. This is also the same process for spectators, everyone just needs to share the tickets to the person that will be attending on the day.

 

If you have a child or special pass holder, the contact tracing form will need to be filled out and handed in at the gate on arrival. https://www.willowbankraceway.com.au/pages/?ParentPageID=5&PageID=499 This is only for a child or special pass holder.

 

Camping

There will now be CAMPING PERMITTED for racers and crew on site for key events at the venue. Under the following conditions

  • Camping will only be made available to racers and crew and will not be available for the general public.
  • Competitors entered in the event will be emailed a promotion code to unlock the option to purchase camping on site
  • There will be a charge of $10.00 per person per night for onsite camping.  This will be payable online only.
  • You will be issued a ticket with a bar code for each person you book camping for.
  • This bar code will then need to be scanned at the Main Administration office (TBC) and then you will be issued with a wristband that will be UNIQUE TO EACH NIGHT that you are camping on site.
  • You will be required to secure your wristband in order for it to be valid
  • The Administration office will be open for a short period of time for camping ticketing scanning and collection of wristbands. This time will be advised for each event
  • At the conclusion of the event each night, security will make a sweep of the venue and any competitors or crew without a wristband will be required to vacate the venue.

 

This is a new initiative being implemented and we appreciate your patience as we fine tune this process to achieve the best outcome for everyone.
