Willowbank Drags Wednesday nights

Discussion in 'QLD' at netrider.net.au started by chrisco, Aug 20, 2012.

  1. Is there anyone that regularly goes to the drag nights or race days at Willowbank? Even if you don't go all the time. Just looking for someone that knows how it all works and would come along.

  2. I have only been the one time, but it is pretty simple and the staff are very friendly and willing to point you in the right direction.

    Basically you just rock up at the gate, pay your fee and grab the waiver/agreement (can't remember what it is called) and you fill in your details and some bike/car details. Then you present yourself generally in your riding gear to get a race number and check you are wearing the right stuff.

    Then it is a simple case of line up and run as many times as you manage to squeeze in.
    I think I had about 8 runs down the strip myself.

    I think I might try to organise to head down there again in October on my holidays. This time planning to take the bike down on a ute rather than ride 3 hours down and 3 hours back, makes for a big day.

  8. Well I work in Milton so I'll probably leave here around 4 quick dash home to get changed. I'll probably get there right at 5.30

    Got a mate bringing his 60s Datsun fair lady for a few runs which should be funny lol.
