FAQS

How does timing work?

Timing is done through NATSOFT and we use Westhold transponders for the event. If you don’t have a transponder, you can purchase or hire one to receive timing. Your times are available live on the NATSOFT website or printed after each run.

How do groupings work?

If you don’t have track experience, please select the beginner group – this will ensure that you are given the space to be able to get comfortable driving on track. Intermediate – for vehicles and drivers that are capable of pushing themselves just that bit further but are going at a leisurely pace. Medium – Can include race cars and experienced drivers who understand their limits Fast – The most experienced drivers in high performance vehicles

How do I get a pit-bay?

Pit-bays are first come, first serve. You are welcome to set up in the pitlane for your event if there is space.

Will the event be cancelled if it rains?

We still run the event if it rains, we will only cancel if the track is deemed unsafe & unusable which is usually due to flooding or torrential rain. If we do cancel, all entrants will be contacted by QR staff to organise a credit.

I believe my points are wrong or that I am in the wrong category for the Sprints Series, what do I do?

Please contact our office so that we can investigate further. Email us on admin@qldraceways.com.au The best way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to have all the correct details for your vehicle loaded into your entry – make sure that it lists the capacity, turbo/no turbo and registration.

I’ve never been on track before, what should I know before entering the Sprints?

Sprints are our best option for drivers who don’t have track experience. The groupings are quite small, the event is highly regulated and you are able go at your own speed. You will need a helmet, your car should meet the sanctioning bodies’ standards and you will need to wear long sleeves, long pants, and enclosed shoes. Timing is optional, if you just want to find your feet, you don’t need to include timing in your event.

My friend & I share a car, can we both drive?

Yes, but both will need to pay & enter as a driver to be able to participate. Entry is by driver, not by vehicle. We will ensure that you will run in separate groups.

What’s the difference between Sprints and General Practice?

General Practice is not part of the series and is an open track day with all competitors and drivers welcome. Sprints offers timing, while there is no timing in General Practice. There are also monitored regulations regarding overtaking in Sprints – competitors are only allowed to overtake slower vehicles on the straights. The groupings are more defined and give everyone space and opportunity to enjoy the event to the best of their ability.
