The Noosa Beach Classic Car Club has developed a track at Gyndier Drive, Tewantin about ten minutes drive from Noosa in a natural forest area. The facility includes an extensive pit area and access tracks to all the exciting corners where the enthusiast can smell and hear motor racing as it used to be. The racing is organised by the Historic Racing Car Club of Queensland and attracts a field each year of up to 200 historic and high performance cars. The course now holds the highest Confederation of Motor Sport (CAMS) rating.
