2020 QLD Drag Racing Championships

WILLOWBANK RACEWAY SUSPENDS RACING ACTIVITIES

Due to the Government restrictions on social gatherings Willowbank Raceway has suspended all racing activities. The dates noted on this page are not correct (unfortunatley can't be changed) and will be updated as soon as the restrictions have been lifted by the Government. 


Unfortunately, these new measures will include the Test ‘n Tune, Diesel Assault, Racer Test Day, Street Series and Qld Drag Racing Championships round. 


Willowbank Raceway is totally committed to resuming racing activities as soon as it is permitted by the Government. 


In the meantime, we are working towards the best outcome for all stakeholders including sponsors, racers and patrons, examining all options before us regarding what may happen through 2020.


 

Queensland Drag Racing Championship

The Queensland Drag Racing Championships bring racers from all across the state to compete for a prestigious QDRC trophy and Track Champion status at Willowbank Raceway, delivering high-octane action for both racers and spectators. 

Hosting championship racing for competitors across the Serco QDRC Comp Bike, Donnelly Blasting Services QDRC Outlaws, Knijff Earthmoving Modified, Super Sedan, Prime Signs/Speed Elec Super Street, Lifestyle Injury Lawyers Modified Bike, Donnelly Blasting Services Junior Dragster and Top Sportsman brackets, the QDRC hosts on average more than 130 racers per round, with no shortage of thrilling action.

 

 

Willowbank Raceway has responded to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) control measures instituted by the Federal and State Governments. The Qld Drag Racing Championship round scheduled for Saturday April 18 will proceed with a raft of changes to the event structure to protect our participants, volunteer officials and event staff while complying with the government health regulations limiting any outdoor public gathering to less than 500 persons.

Please understand that this is an unprecedented time for all of us as we work to provide participants the opportunity to race their vehicles at events conducted within extremely tight constraints. The only alternative to the conditions outlined below would be to close the Raceway until the current health emergency is over. We would appreciate your co-operation and understanding at this time.

General Public Spectators will not be permitted at this event.

Willowbank Raceway Life Pass and Sponsor Pass holders can attend the event but must notify the Raceway Office via email of their intention to attend prior to the close of entries so they can be included in the attendance count.
