  Welcome to the Mysterious, Scientific, Highly Competitive and Secretive Hobby

of Constructing and Racing high speed “Rocker Covers”

To the average layman, Automotive Rocker Covers are seen as a container to be placed over the Tappets or even Cam Shafts of Engines to keep the oil from splashing all over the place, right???

 Wrong!!   They are in reality very technical and intricate, high speed racing machines.

They are Raced down a specially prepared 2 lane Racing Ramp, a system, very similar to Drag Racing.


It is a generally accepted fact that the very popular and competitive Drag Racing Movement  copied and slightly modified the original sport of the Rocker Cover Racing for themselves.

The Evolution of Rocker Racing

 What started out as a casual conversation in 1999 between long time CHAC-RL member Max Curtis and friends in Gosford NSW about rocker cover racing being run in a classic car club in NSW 

This new sport has now become a major social event  in the CHAC-RL Calendar and is now being adopted by several other Classic Auto clubs

Max made the first race track about 2000, with the inaugural race event held the following year with many of his family and grandchildren being given Rocker Cover cars to race.

Six years later and the track was upgraded by another CHAC Club member Dave Tincknell and friendly races between club members took place

Over the last few years the sport has become very popular and the racing Rocker Covers have become a bit more refined with quite a few enthusiasts investing quite a bit of thought and effort in designing racers with that little refinement that may just have that winning edge

In 2013 Tony Claridge  introduced a few more refinements to the sport with formalized Heat Races, finishing with a Final between Heat Winners. CHAC-RL now run three annual championship rounds, culminating in the “Champion of Champions” GP at the end of the year
