Here’s a must-do list for your weekend of Supercars action.  There’s burnout martinis, sprinter high teas and even V8 curries on the menu.

Ungermann Brothers Ice-cream Parlour

For a limited time only, Ungermann Brothers are offering the V8 SuperSprint Grease Car Range which is inspired by the grit and grind of the Queensland Raceway track. Grab a scoop or two of their black ice-cream, available in the three surprise flavours of black sesame seed, liquorice and smoked vanilla – the official tastes of the track!

Indian Mehfil

Once the day has wrapped up, sprint over to Indian Mehfil for dinner and order the V8 Supercars Lamb Shank. This is the perfect spot for a post-SuperSprint debrief session to look back on the day and place your bets on which driver will take the win.  

Pumpyard Bar and Brewery

Flaming hot wings

Slam the breaks, did you say hot wings and martinis!? We are pumping our fists at the fact that Pumpyard Bar and Brewery will be serving up Flaming Hot Wings, which you can wash down with their exclusive Burnout Martini.

The Retro Diner

Shift the gears back a notch and travel back in time at Retro Diner. Change up the classic burger and shake combo with the SuperSprint exclusive ‘Sprinter High Tea’ which will excite and delight the entire family.   

Two Butchers

The crew at Two Butchers at Orion Springfield Central have got your meat needs sorted for a track-side BBQ. Serving farm fresh, grass fed premium meat from steaks to sausages and everything in between, you’ll be spoilt for choice this race weekend. Be sure to look out for their V8 car shaped pastry…because there’s not enough cars in one weekend to drool over already!

La Prima Pizzeria

V8s pizza

Race into lunch at La Prima Pizzeria in Springfield and enjoy their Supersprint special, ‘The V8 Super Deal’. They’ll plate up any pizza of your choice with a can of drink for just $15. We recommended turning up the heat with the ‘Inferno’ pizza, stacked with mozzarella, chicken, chilli flakes and chilli sauce – time to get those engines revving!
