The premier racing drivers championship in the state is the Queensland Racing Drivers' Championship. The Championship is open to talented newcomers as well as experienced old hands and produces some very close racing over a two day weekend, with practice on the Friday. The Championship regularly attracts in excess of 100 talented drivers to do battle across multiple categories and series.
QRDC has a wide range of vehicles competing from Excels to Sports Cars, as well as demonstrations and off track entertainment for all the family.
Spectator viewing at Queensland Raceway is excellent with the flat layout of the circuit and spectator mounds. Lakeside Park offers an incredible viewing experience as drivers push themselves to the limits around the fast flowing circuit north of Brisbane.
In 2017, there are 6 rounds across the two tracks with select categories competing at each round. The fifth round on the 16th and 17th of September at Queensland Raceway will feature the Italian Festival of Motorsport and the whole place will come alive with a celebration of all things Italian and automotive.
