THE V8 Supercar Transporter Parade returns to Ipswich today with a convoy of 18 B-double transporters set to hit town.

The parade will travel through a number of Ipswich suburbs and the CBD from noon to 1pm.

Starting at Queensland Raceway, the trucks will take the Cunningham Hwy and Warwick Rd into town, turning in the centre of Ipswich before heading out again the same way.

The V8 Supercar drivers will also be dropping into the Coates Hire branch in Ipswich before the start of the parade to join in the Coates Hire V8 Supercars Community Day.

People can enjoy a barbecue lunch, meet some of the drivers and grab an autograph at the community day which will run from 11.30am to 12.30pm at Coates Hire Ipswich, 63 Lobb St, Churchill.
