HOW TO GET TO QUEENSLAND RACEWAY

BY ROAD:
Queensland Raceway is approximately 50 kms west of Brisbane, on the outskirts of Ipswich and close to the Amberley air force base, home of the F-111. It is part of the Ipswich City Council's Ipswich Motorsport Precinct.

The precinct is beside the Cunningham Highway, approximately 22km from the Ipswich Motorway.

BY TRAIN:
Fans not wanting to drive to the circuit on V8 Supercar race day have a great new option this year. Free buses will be continually on route from Ipswich Station to the circuit, check this website in the lead up to the Queensland 300 for specific times. This option is also available as a park-and-ride alternative for fans wanting to park their cars in Ipswich.

BY PLANE:
For visitors flying to Brisbane Airport, the recommended route is south on the Gateway Arterial, then on to the Logan Motorway, Ipswich Motorway and Cunningham Highway. Although not the most direct, this route avoids all urban traffic and takes less than an hour.

WILL THERE BE ANY TRAFFIC PROBLEMS?
All traffic problems associated with the Queensland Raceway were rectified after the first V8 Supercar race in 1999. Millions of dollars have been spent improving local roads and a detailed traffic plan has been developed with local police and the Department of Main Roads. 10,000 extra car parking spaces have also been developed to help fans in and out of the track with minimal delays.

WHAT TRAFFIC CLOSURES WILL BE IN PLACE?
For the Queensland 300, traffic from Toowoomba that normally feeds the Cunningham Highway at Riverview will be advised to divert at the intersection of Haigslea Amberley Road and the Warrego Highway.

Through traffic from Warwick to Brisbane (on Cunningham Highway) will be advised to use the Southern By-pass and heavy vehicles will be advised to use the route via Toowoomba. These diversions will enable the Cunningham Highway to be blocked from the South directly outside the Queensland Raceway, allowing a direct flow of traffic into the circuit and thus avoiding major delays. These closures will take effect from 7am-10am on Sunday August 26 and will be well sign-posted.
