Raceway braces for Australia’s best Supercars drivers

IT'S just over a week now until the big event at Queensland Raceway - the Coates Hire Ipswich Super Sprint.

The action in Townsville was aplenty. With so many different winners this year, it will be great to see what transpires next weekend.

This weekend provides lots of actions at the Ipswich Motorsport Precinct.

It starts with the Friday Night Drift at Queensland Raceway.

With nearly a month since the drifts' last night, there will be many people lining up to get their sideways fix tonight.

Saturday night at Queensland Raceway is the ever favourite Saturday Night Roll Racing.

This new phenomenon is attracting some excellent cars and has a great atmosphere.

Around 80-100 cars compete and it's a load of fun.

It's great if you want to race your mate you simply line up roll side by side around the corner onto the straight at 40kmh then take off and drag your buddy down the straight to the finish line.

If you don't have a mate to race you can run in the heads up lane where you will line up against anyone else lined up.

It's a great way to meet people that share your enthusiasm with cars.

All things Ford will hit the track on Sunday, with the 34th annual All Ford Day.

I love my Mustangs so I will be there having a look at all of them on display and even watch them having a run down the quarter mile.

It's such an affordable day out for the whole family with a huge mix of classic Fords from early to modern incarnations - old Cortina's and GT Falcons through to new FPV's.

On Sunday, I will sneak out to Queensland Raceway and catch another moto ride day.

I'm still hooked up on bikes after last Sunday's Superbike Championship.

It was great to see the Queenslander Robbie Bugden take out the win on his Kawasaki.

I hope you got the chance to come to Willowbank Raceway last Saturday.

What a show. It was a day filled with exciting racing, nitro funny cars and top bikes testing.

The Pro Radial bracket is definitely growing in popularity.

It was overall a fantastic day, with the race for the track championship becoming even tighter.
