OPEN PRACTICE to all skill levels! Great opportunity for non competitive drivers to try out Australia's one and only legal street drifting event layout

Day 2 Saturday

We will unleash over 60 competition cars for the Pro National Practice before we start the Origin Australia Qualifying session and narrow the field down to 32 of the best in Australia, then to follow that up we line the 60+ drivers up and unleash them for the '60 Minutes To Win It' expression session, often one of the most intense sessions of the weekend finishing at 5pm.

Saturday Night
To round out Saturdays preceeding all drivers, teams and public are all invited to the announcement of the 60 Minutes To Win It event and qualifying results from 7pm (venue TBC).

Day 3 Sunday

32 of the very best drivers will go head-to-head in elimination style battles with the cream rising to the top.  Once the top 32 is over we go into the most anticipated part of the weekend for the drivers and most exciting for spectators; the Final expression session.
