To simplify the identification of race cars
To promote a better image of the sport to the paying public
For Nationally registered divisions – to make it easier to clarify their home state
when travelling interstate to race or racing against cars from other states in Qld
How to Implement
1 To be effective as at 1st July 2009
2 Owners of numbers in the 2008/09 season to remain
3 From 1st July 2009 no further registrations to be accepted if number is
4 Registered Owners list to be on QSCA website
5 If you wish to secure your number and you do not have a currently
registered car as at 30th June 2009, you must pay a $50 holding fee
6 The holding fee is due by 30th June in subsequent years to secure the
7 We consider the introduction of 3 digit numbers in the Divisions that
require them in due course
8 Club Prefixes to remain as an integral part of car identification
9 Drivers may choose to move to another available number at anytime by
application to the QSCA.
10 Numbers that are held by payment of a holding fee will have the $50
holding fee credited to the cost of registration if registered within 4 months
of the start of the next racing season. E.g. $50 holding fee paid on 30th
June 2010 car registered before 31st October, 2010 will attract a credit.
Over a number of years as drivers move away from the sport the duplication of
numbers in the divisions will slowly decrease, without causing any grief for those
Considerations for a Gradual Introduction
Race teams have apparel for driver and crew which is already in use and costly
Some drivers have raced on ‘their’ number for several years and are well known
Less disruption for existing drivers/owners
Car 21 is registered as at 30th June 2009
Owner has until 30th June 2010 to re-register the car or pay the holding fee
to retain the registration number for next racing season.
If holding fee is not paid or car re-registered, 21 is availale to whoever is the
first applicant on or after 1st July 2010.
