New Year's Shootout

Cancellation of the January Shootout events.


Following the announcement today by the Queensland Government of a mandatory 3-day lockdown for greater Brisbane, which includes the Ipswich region, unfortunately we have no option but to immediately cancel both the Test Day scheduled for later today and the event on Saturday the 9th of January 2021 in order to keep our fans and racers safe.

While we are extremely disappointed, but we have no other option but to make this decision.

We will be in touch with all ticket holders next week to discuss our refund or transfer policy for all tickets purchased for this event.

We thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this time


Willowbank Raceway hits Covid for a 6 with the match race to end all match races. 

Covid may have forced us to cancel our 400 Thunder Championship round in January, but the Willowbank Board and CEO wanted to bounce back with something out of the box, the Match Race from Hell we are calling the New Year Shootout.

This event is to show our fans that nothing can keep us down and we will continue to push the boundaries of the sport into the future.

With Pro Alcohol, Top Bike and Door Wars  (Pro Slammer vs Pro Mod) match races all coming together from across the East Coast to put on a show at the New Year Shootout at Willowbank Raceway on the 9th of January 2021.  This event will highlight the very best of our Championship professional brackets.

What a way for Willowbank to kick off the 2021 season not only for racers but with also the fans with such a professional line up and match race glory up for grabs. 

This will be an evening event with the Pro Sessions at 6pm, 8pm and 10pm to stay out of the heat of the day.

Get your tickets early because with this line up, you can bet they will sell out fast – just like the action on track.  Remember, spectator numbers are strictly limited so get in early. Because we can’t wait.

There is a slight change to the entry process that you all need to be aware of, as everyone entering the facility must hold an e-ticket, this is noted below


  • Log onto our website and Enter event as per normal – nothing has changed here
  • Once your entry is accepted in the office you will notice when you go to your members area and click Racers it goes to ‘My Entries’ page, this will show the events you have entered into.
  • There is a new tab ‘Crew Passes’ click on this; it will take you to a page that has all your tickets (included in entry and purchased ones) Tickets are only available 14 days prior to the event
  • You must share your tickets with your crew/spectators, they will be required to fill out their details including the COVID questions and then they will receive the e-ticket
  • Each person (including driver/rider) will need to have their e-ticket in their name to scan through the gate. This can either be printed or on a smartphone
  • You the driver/rider will still need to collect your envelope at the gate, this will have your allocated crew tickets to collect your armbands from scrutineering
