Slideways Sprints Drift into Brisbane

The event was run to the standard Sprint format, with a short qualifying session followed by three ten-minute-long races, with a random invert setting the grid for race two, with the starting order for the finale set by combined points from qualifying and the opening two heats.

With a mix of newcomers and experienced Slideways race event competitors, it was rookie racer Lindsay Edwards on pole position with a time of 40.699sec.
