Spectacular line-up of racing for 2 Days of Thunder at Queensland Raceway
Queensland Raceway will host a blockbuster weekend of racing over the 26th and 27th of June at the 2 Days of Thunder, featuring TA2 Australia, the Queensland Touring Car Championship, Group N Historic Touring Cars, Australian Trans-Am, Formula Vee, and QR Sports and Sedans.
The weekend’s schedule will see most categories race five-times over the two days, while TA2 will battle it out over four 12-lap affairs.
Joining the six mega racing categories will be the Porsche Sprints group, who will be participating in five Sprint sessions on the Clubman layout, showcasing the German-marque’s mighty lap speed.
TA2 Australia recently joined the bill at 2 Days of Thunder and will roar to life on Saturday 26th with an exciting field of Mustangs, Challengers and Camaros.
The Queensland Touring Car Championship heads into their third round of the year with Mathew Haak in his VL Commodore leading the series. Haak faces stiff competition, with Murray Kent’s (Torana) clean sweep from QTCC’s last visit to QR catapulting him up the order. QTCC are scheduled to contest their five races across three different track configurations, the Sprint, National and Clubman.
Group N are slated to excite yet again with their first visit to Queensland Raceway in ‘21 with an array of Mustangs, Cortinas, Toranas and more. The category will run four of their five races on the National circuit, only switching to the Clubman for their fourth race.
Australian Trans-Am’s eye-catching American machinery will be thundering across the weekend with five 8-lap events, with Fords, Pontiacs and Plymouths all dueling it out.
Spectators will be treated on and off track, with some thrilling racing and an incredible car display in the paddock area. Shannons Insurance has pooled together an array of brilliant cars which will all be parked in the paddock for viewing.
