As with any new activity the foundation year requires significant investment to ensure all elements run well and that CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motorsport) endorses any future rounds to be hosted in region.

In order to secure state and federal government funding for future events, the foundation year requires adequate seed funding from Whitsunday stakeholders (both government and private enterprise in conjunction) to ensure a successful event.

In 2019 the festival is collaboration between Abell Point Marina, Whitsunday Regional Council and Tourism Whitsundays, with the Whitsunday Sporting Car Club being the host club. The Rally Whitsundays operation is managed by the Queensland Rally Panel (QRAP) with a team of experts to deliver the rally.

We welcome the support of businesses to be involved with a number of sponsorship opportunities.

The options for Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze categories are available where you can select which best fits your organisation and for your business to be in front of this dynamic group of motoring enthusiasts and Whitsunday community. 

The foundational year will enable you to not only be a pioneer recognised sponsor, be recognised as a key foundational contributor and also the first rights for sponsorship as the event grows over the forthcoming years with the aim of hosting a National round therefore securing your spot as an advocate of this event in years to come.
