Night Finals at Ipswich Pro Tour Shakedown

Pro Tour PR

Ipswich Club President, Scott Howard has confirmed that he will be running a Day/Night Shakedown Event on Saturday April 6th ahead of the third round of the Sparco Rotax Pro Tour.

With the third round of the National Series being ran under lights this is the perfect opportunity for drivers to race and test ahead of the QLD State Title round.

“We will be offering both day and night practice in the lead up to the shakedown and promise to run the finals under lights so drivers can well and truly get a feel for the tracks conditions” says Howard.

This will be the first time since the 2014 Nationals that the Rotax Pro Tour runs under lights and both the promoters and club are excited for the event.

Howard also confirmed the track will be open on the following days for practice leading up to the shakedown and the day after:


  • Wednesday 3rd April – 9:00am to 9:00pm
  • Thursday 4th April – 8:00am to 5:00pm
  • Friday 5th April – 9:00am to 9:00pm
  • Saturday 6th April – Official Shakedown Day/Night Event

Once Supplementary Regulations are approved and entries have opened we will inform you via our social media outlets. We just want to give everyone enough notice to plan.
