This 4.5km circuit follows the world famous Surfers Paradise shoreline and is one of the most colourful events of the year in terms of atmosphere. It is a difficult street circuit layout that combines the need for good straightline speed with being able to get in and out of the slowest and narrowest of corners. Panel rubbing and major accidents are par for the course at this major event. Having stated this, I enjoy having a real go at this circuit as the rewards are great, but the price to pay for a mistake, just like any street circuit, can be major.

Post-race report

24 October 2010

Day started out great with Richo and i on the front row, was great to give that back to the team after their hard nights work. Race didn't go exactly to plan with some issues in the pits, but we didn't give up and got back on the podium. Car was really fast, we definitely belonged on the podium this weekend.
