Jul 20 – Jul 22 all-day

The club will be attending the Supercars Ipswich Round for all three days of the event.

For those wishing to go on Sunday only, the meeting point on the Sunday is at the Redbank Plaza Car Park – near KFC.

Meeting place is the KFC Redbank lower car park.

Friday and Saturday, for those attending those days, there is no official organised cruise to the venue, simply make your own arrangement for those days.

Unfortunately Supercars have banned the use of BBQ’s – but the club has negotiated a deal with a food vendor situated just nearby our location on the back straight for a discounted breakfast on the Sunday. You are still able to bring personal quantity of food with you, but no alcohol is allowed through the gate, and cars will be inspected upon gate entry.

Tickets for the Coates Hire Ipswich Super Sprint will need to be purchased prior to the event via Ticketek.

Please note :- you need to purchase a General Admission Ticket (Trackside), Paddock Pass (optional but recommended) and a Park n View pass in order to park with the club trackside.


We will have our usual Club area on the back straight with our cars parked behind the spectator area for all three days of the event, with Sunday being the main attendance day. The Club has secured a marquee for some seating.

We suggest that you bring a chair and ensure you have plenty of sunscreen and bring headwear for shade.

Please indicate your attendance by contacting Les Gray on 0427 719 495

We want the venue to keep its community licence to operate well into the future.

Rules for Happy Laps – (They may seem onerous but the vast majority attending will have participated before and have always left smiling and asking to do it again – So here’s your chance)


Happy Laps are for family cruising NOT performance driving,


  • Any car-to-car contact is an instant stop for the session
  • Any car going off the track is an instant stop for the session
  • >1 sec of tyre smoke is an instant stop for the session
  • Speed obviously in excess of 120kph is an instant stop for the session; this is more than fair as there are sprints and drag events that hot drivers can participate in if they want to go fast.
  • In addition, during Happy Laps;
  • No helmets are to be worn by anybody
  • No unregistered or trailered cars are permitted on the track
  • No cars fitted with aftermarket roll cages
  • All cars must have current registration and plates must not be obscured
  • Drivers may be breath tested including by the Police – anyone reading more than 0.00 will be banned from the track
  • QR will name and shame drivers who push the limits and cause a session to be cancelled

RSVP – Final numbers are needed by Tuesday prior to event so see dates above and via email  Please indicate your name and number attending. If you want to pay by Credit Card in advance we need your, number, expiry and ccv and I will process Friday before the event. The club has to advise and pay in advance so if you advise your attendance we need your payment. The event is being run at no profit to keep prices reasonable so what we charge is what we have to pay QR.

I look forward to seeing you there for Breakfast and some fun on one of the most iconic race tracks in Australia and one steeped in a rich motorsport history.
