Fans will be treated to quite the spectacle as there will be no shortage of on-track action with 30 scheduled races across the weekend.  

The Improved Production Cars will field the largest grid with 37 diverse entries to put on a show, while Formula Ford will welcome an impressive 29 entries. 

Other categories include the Excels, Formula Vee, Toyota 86 Scholarship Series, Saloons, Sports Sedans, Porsche 944s and Holden HQs.  

Each category will undertake one qualifying session before fighting for positions in three scheduled races to crown an outright winner. 

The longest race being labelled the main race and will reward the winner with a larger allocation of points.  

The action will kick off at 9:00am AEST and will conclude at 5:00pm and spectators will be welcome to witness all the action across the three days for affordable prices.
