QLD - ICC Economy Run

Registrations Closed
Date & Time
20 August 2023 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM
(UTC+10:00) Australia/Brisbane

Registrations Are Closed

Come for a fun drive and see some magnificent views over The Sunshine Coast. We have joined up with ICC and have invited several other local car clubs along, so you'll see some cool machinery - and meet some cool people!

What is an Economy Run?

Drivers in an Economy Run follow a mapped route, using their best fuel and battery preserving skills. Each drivers' consumption is calculated, and scored relative to the manufacturers rating for the car. This means that we can fairly score petrol, diesel and electric cars of all sizes and performance levels on the same scale.

All Road Registered Vehicles are Welcome!

Pick the vehicle from your fleet which you believe will get you the win.

What do I Need?

A road registered, roadworthy, insured vehicle, at least one passenger to be your navigator, and a charged up mobile phone as you will need to send photos along your journey. You could do the run without a navigator, but we want this to be a social, family-friendly event!


If you have a UHF radio, please bring it along. We'll use channel 18 on the day. If you don't, that is okay, just call me on 0419 671 006 if you get lost.


How do I enter?


Click the Purchase Tickets button to the right. You'll need a car entry and if you are joining us for lunch you'll need a Lunch ticket for each person. The tickets are free, we are just using the ticketing system to collect the data about your car that we need to score the competition.

Where will this take place?

We will be starting and finishing at the Shell Service Station at 4288 Bruce Highway (Southbound) Glasshouse Mountains. This location also has an Evie Charging Station. The route we will drive will consist of local roads, highways, and hilly scenic roads.


The link is to Google Maps, so you can just click the link to the next stop and your phone will tell you where to go.

Do I Win a Prize?

Yes, you do! Prizes will be given for the Best and Worst scores. Categories are being finalised and will be advised prior to the event.

What are the Rules of the Game?

 You must:

  • Drive according to the road rules and signed speed limits.
  • Follow the mapped route and have photographic evidence of yourself at each checkpoint (Take a selfie with you, your car, and the view from the checkpoint!)
  • Not add fuel or charge to their vehicle once the game starts
  • Not switch vehicles along the way
  • Arrive at the checkpoints and finish line within the designated time.

How is the game scored?

Upon arrival at Shell at the start of the day, an official will assist you to fill up or charge up and record your odometer reading and the process will be completed again when you finish.

When we return to the Shell at the end of the tour a scrutineer will observe you filling your car to full, or the same % you started with for an EV.

Points are awarded by comparing your rated consumption of your car with the actual consumption on the day as a percentage. If you use twice as much fuel or energy as the rating states, then you will get 50 points. If you use half as much, you’ll get 200. A point will be docked for each minute you are behind the cut-off time to each check point.

How do I prove my car’s rated economy?

On the entry form you will be asked to supply the official combined rating for your car in l/100km or Wh/km and its make, model, and variant.

You can get this from for cars sold from 2004 onwards. For older cars, or those without an entry there you will need to find proof of your cars advertised range, for example from an old brochure, take a photo, and present it to the scrutineer on the day.
