Round 1 - Carrara Ferry Rode

Carrrara Ferry Rode

The Carrara Ferry Rode trophy displays a scale model of a Centaur Clubman steering wheel bulkhead.

The 1954 Australian Grand Prix was held on a  9.2 km public road circuit on the southern outskirts of  Southport on Queensland’s Gold Coast. The very long northern straight was the road running south from Southport via Meyer’s Ferry over the Nerang River to the district (now suburb) of Carrara. This road was known variously by the locals as Meyers Ferry Road, Carrara Ferry Road or simply Ferry Road. Today the section of this northern straight is gazetted as Ferry Road from Southport to the Chevron Island bridge at the Southport Golf Club and Bundall Road from the golf club to the Nerang River. In 1954 where Ferry Road becomes Bundall Road there was a “no passing” section due to a bend (Dunlop Bend) at a  creek with a single lane bridge. Hence  the origin of Carrara Ferry Rode.


Round 2 - Middle Ridge Run


Between 1958 and 1961, road races were held on public roads at Middle Ridge, a suburb of Toowoomba. The almost rectangular course of approximately 4.2 kms attracted many top name interstate drivers for the annual race meeting which coincided with the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. Despite valiant efforts, the race failed to become an iconic event as happened with other road races in rural regions of Australia, but maintains its importance in Queensland motor racing history.
