The big event features some the best car racing drivers in the world: some come from the Indy Car series and Formula 1 and others are some of the best factory car drivers from other championship series events. The Gold Coast race event is the ideal place for race fans everywhere to cheer for their preferred driver and car.

It all begins on Friday, each participating driver, about 28 of them, will have four on-track sessions to practice. On Saturday, there is the qualifiers session, the Top 10 Shootout and then, there is the Gold Coast 300 km race a few hours later. And on Sunday, there is the second and final 300 km race.

Before the start of the race, there are the grid girls who are posing next to each car, standing in pit lanes and acting as promo models. Whatever their role, these attractive girls are present at the Indy car race, as they are also a big part of the excitement on race day.

For those auto-racing fans that want to attend the Indy car race event, the Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercars race takes place, generally in the third week of October, on the Surfers Paradise Street Circuit in Queensland Raceway near Ipswich. There is plenty to see from all sides of the circuit. It has many fast sections, corners and S-shaped curves that will not only test the drivers maneuvering, but will also provide the audience with lots of fast-paced and tricky driving action.
