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

21 October 2012

We had great pace in the FPR cars all weekend, we ended up with two 3rd places this weekend after passing a lot of cars to get there. We had a lot thrown at us with commentary chat during my shoot out lap, multiple starts for the codrivers in Saturdays race and issues in pit stops to overcome. It was a pleasure working with Will Power, i really enjoyed it, he is a great guy and did a good job.
