Friday night drifters provide a top start to weekend

TONIGHT is another spectacular Friday Night Drift at Queensland Raceway.

The Friday nights events are a great way to start off the weekend with about 100 drifters doing their stuff on both the skid pan and the circuit.

On Saturday, another bunch of lucky budding V8 drivers will enjoy the V8 Race Experience.

On Sunday, the Queensland Formula Xtreme Championship round 2 is underway.

There will be more than 80 bikes racing along with my favorite category - the Race your Mates.

Race your Mates are for first-time racers.

It is designed to give ride day punters the entry into racing.

Around 30 bikes will line up on Sunday, which is great for the sport.

Meanwhile, it's pretty quiet at Willowbank Raceway after the 2016 City of Ipswich Winternationals two weeks ago.

However, I had the opportunity to get back on the track for Wednesday's Test 'n' Tune.

Plenty of new cars at the track are having a go for the first time down the quarter mile.

The guys on the start line are so helpful with first- timers.

All Bike Day is looking to be a hit at the beginning of July as well.

This is when bike enthusiasts will be able to compete across a range of brackets as well as take in a range of demonstrations.
