In 2011 Queensland Raceway revealed it had been broken into overnight, with thieves taking a Nissan Skyline for a joyride around the track.

The raceway was one of the venues that were hit in the precinct and owner John Tetley estimated that $20,000 worth of damage had been done.

As well as the joyride, thieves broke through two sets of gates, into the track’s garages and disturbed the canteen.
