In 2010, a substantial accident in the Mini Challenge at Queensland Raceway brought a halt to proceedings.

Kain Magro and Sarah Harley had made contact coming into Turn 6, which sent Magro into a series of rolls before the car was launched into the spectator area.

Two spectators were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries as a result of the incident. Magro also took a precautionary visit to hospital for tests.
