We recently completed urgent repairs to the Ironbark Raceway track prior to Easter in The Country. Had the repairs not been completed before the Easter races, they were going to call off the race or run only one lane due to the major safety issue.
Ironbark Raceway was built largely by a group of local drag racing enthusiasts with the support of local council, businesses and oil and gas exploration companies, an impressive achievement for a community of 6,500 people. The Queensland Government has also contributed $90,000 towards the build.
The drag strip includes a half mile run off, a return road and staging lanes. The raceway features a control tower equipped with computers, public address system and computerised starting lights and has excellent viewing from a huge spectator mound.
