Discover Ipswich, Staff Writer

Winter might deliver a drop in the temperature to the heritage city but it’s also that time of the year when Ipswich’s horsepower season is just warming up.



It all fires up at Willowbank Raceway with the Winternationals from June 7-10 – the big finale of the fiercely contested national 400 Thunder series.

This is event is the biggest drag racing muster outside the USA and brings top drivers and tens of thousands of spectators out for a weekend of super-charged action.  Good to know: It’s geared up as a fun family event with kdis under 13 admitted free!


The Ipswich Cup at Ipswich Turf Club

From motorsport to horse racing – the famed Ipswich Cup brings racing fans out in their finest fascinators on June 16.

This is a race that began in the same decade as the Melbourne Cup in the 1860s. Back then, the Ipswich run actually offered up a heftier purse that the race that went on to be the nation-stopper we know it as today.

If you want to arrive at the track in style, book a transfer with Pterodactyl Helicopters. You can fly in from Brothers Leagues Club … or from your door if you’re on acreage – talk to Captain Mike about options!

Go along and show your team colours at round nine of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. Children 12 and under go trackside free with a paying adult, so bring the whole crew.
