QRDC 7 at Lakeside Park features massive fields this weekend

qrssqrdc7.jpg#asset:6728The seventh round of the 2021 Queensland Raceways Drivers Championship is on this Sunday (19th September) at Lakeside Park with five different categories attacking the track to put on the best show for race fans at this historic race circuit.

With 28 cars, the QR Sports and Sedans is at capacity and is sure to be hotly contested with not just one, but two TA2 Mustangs on the entry list. Joining these Ford beasts are a number of regular racers in an assortment of cars for the ‘run what ya brung’ category. The mixture of cars like Commodores, Toyota 86s, BMW E36s; among others, are all entered in the sell-out category. You know there will be lots of different races and passing moves in their races.

The TA2 Mustangs are expected to dominate with the #4 car campaigned by rising star Nash Morris, of the of the well-known Morris racing family, having his first bash at hauling one of these monsters around the flowing but narrow Lakeside track. Veteran campaigner Chris Pappas in the #88 car will keep him honest. Lakeside became the original home of TA2 racing in Australia from when the cars debuted there in 2016.

Supporting the QR Sports and Sedans races this weekend will be the first combined grid of Production Utes and Hot Hatches. The different performance characteristics of these two radically different types of vehicles on the track at the same time will certainly create a different spectacle to anything we’ve seen before.

The quickest times for the day will be coming from the well supported SuperKart field which is backed up by the two most popular heritage categories of the Formula Vee fraternity and Heritage Touring cars of Group N.

Gates open at 07:00 and we’re on track from 9:00am. Spectator passes are $30 per person for a full day of racing. Bring all the kids you can - 12 and under are free.

This Sunday, the 19th, put it in your family’s calendar now.
