The Brisbane Sporting Car Club have kicked off the proceedings for the TJM Lockyer 300 with a ride day on 26th July.

2594b_sm Invited guests, including Lockyer Valley property owners, TJM representatives, media, council members, sponsors and volunteers all took part, making the day a huge success.

The guests were presented with a fantastic event layout, a massive feast of cakes and slices for morning tea and a country style roast lunch and a variety of off road vehicles to take them for a hot lap around the 3 km track of varying terrain, which is used in the main race course.

2594c_sm The off road vehicles once again put on a great show, jumping high over the bank at the finish and thrilling guests with the speed at which they can attack the rough terrain around the Lockyer Valley foothills. While the majority of the guests got a taste of the highs of off road racing, as they got to witness just how well off road vehicles can handle any terrain, one lucky guest got to experience the lows, as one competitor had a DNF and required a tow back to the pit.

There was an overwhelming amount of positive responses from everyone who attended, with one guest commenting "that was terrifying" as he took off the helmet, but still had a smile as he scrambled out of the vehicle.

2594d_sm Five off road teams made the journey to the Lockyer Valley for the day. They included the Extreme 4WD of Luke Ayers, Production 4WD of Simon Knowles, Extreme 2WD of Mick Van Moorsel, ProLite of Tait Svenson and the Super 1650 of Mal Dunnett, who made the trek from Middlemount in central Queensland for the day. All of them did a fantastic job at keeping the guests entertained and smiling the whole time.

The Brisbane Sporting Car Club would like to thank everyone who helped with the setup, officiating, cooking on the day and all the property owners for allowing us the use their properties, not only for the ride day but for the event proper over. Without their generosity, the sport event would not have this great venue to go off road racing.

Now the ride day is completed, the Brisbane Sporting Car Club are focusing their energy on the main event, the TJM Lockyer 300 on the 17-19 October. They anticipate on making the 2014 event even better than last year.
