2009 FIA ASIA PACIFIC RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP Rally Championship (APRC) 2nd Round "Rally Queensland" was held during 8th to 10th of May,2009 around Brisbane in Queensland State of Eastern Australia. This rally was well known as very difficult course which drivers have to run out on hard gravel road surface and to past continuous crests with high speed.

Though it was estimated that local drivers have full advantages, Katsu (Team MRF Tire) showed his real ability (1999 APRC Champion and Overall 2nd with 2 times win of 2008 APRC) with Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and splendidly placed 2nd.
