With the date for the TJM Pro Locker-Lockyer 300 on the 25/26/27th of October quickly approaching, the organising committee is well on their way to finalising the 2013 event preparations.

This year there are a few big changes to the event structure which the organisers hope will make the event easier on the competitors and keep the action fast and close for the spectators.

The Friday night Scrutiny Venue has been moved from beside the Warrego Highway at Plainlands to the Gatton Showgrounds. The ample amount of space that the Showgrounds offer, will be better suited for access and parking for the competitor’s trucks and trailers. The large sheds on site will provide a more suitable area for Scrutineers to look over the race vehicles before the competition starts.

The organizers are also looking into using the main arena in the showground to display the race vehicles and incorporate stalls, trade displays and live music to create a mini carnival.

Another great change for the event is to the pit area. The property owner has given the organisers permission to utilize more of the paddock across the road from the Mulgowie Hotel. Plans are well under way in designing this area to incorporate trade displays for local businesses, ample spectator parking and an arena style start and finish line, which will allow spectators to see more of the race vehicles from the start line and a second viewing as the track will again pass through the arena around the 10km mark before heading into the foothills. A spectator point will also be set up at a road crossing where the race vehicles can be viewed twice while crossing the road.
