Held in the picturesque valley and foothills of Queensland’s Lockyer Valley, this weekend’s Thornton Short Course hosted by the Brisbane Sporting Car Club will come to live with 30 crews and competitors set for battle.

An intriguing field awaits the starter for the final Queensland event for the season with many outright contenders highlighting a quality line up! German Autos Motorsport campaigner Tait Svenson #112 deservedly heads into Saturday as one of the favourites coming off his dominant 5 minute victory at the nearby Mulgowie track in February; Svenson knows the Lockyer terrain like the back of his hand and will be all guns blazing seeking back to back titles in the team’s Stealth Predator.

Ryan Taylor #24 will lead the charge of contenders as he unleashes the Tatum in what is set to be an emotional weekend for the team. After a super impressive opening at Goondiwindi in August, Team Taylor will be doing there all to finish their season on a high! Brett Comiskey #34 has competed in all events Queensland had to offer in 2020, and the results have been superb. A breakthrough victory at Inglewood was capped by a huge win at Goondiwindi before further top ten finishes at the Don River, Diaper Station and Moranbah placing him as one to watch this weekend in the team’s spectacularly presented Jimco.

Last weekends’ Diaper Station second and third placegetters Zac Marsh #614 and Jeff McNiven #604 won’t be too far from the front of the pack in their Can Am Mavericks; the two lead a charge of SXS crews who continue to break new ground across the off road scene. The SXS Turbo category is littered with quick peddlers including Michael Zacka #613, Richard Tassin #691, David Loughnan #611, Kye Floyd #624 & Christian Rich #619.

Glen Brinkman #820 drove his Isuzu D-Max to an outright podium position on debut in February and will be looking to return another favourable result, as to will fellow Extreme 4WD competitors Kym Wendt #899 and Anthony Brose #869.

Other cars to keep an eye on include the sole New South Wales entrant Joshua Rose #17 who will campaign his single seater RaceCo, Laurence Svenson #112 dual entering with son Tait, David Ellsworth #111 and Dalby’s Pat Philp #182 who is fresh off a class win at the Diaper Station 100.

SXS Sport is well represented with Mitchell Cross #6669, Lachlan Buchanan #6640, Brooke Kelly #6644 and Ross Newman #6681 primed for action.

Myles Newborn #474 and Campbell Smith #499 will duel it out for the Extreme 2WD title, whilst Tony Dalton #749 is the sole Production 4WD representative.

The remainder of the field includes Frank Waite #604 who will take the wheel of the McNiven Can Am as a duel entrant, Michael Schneider #664, Joshua Weidmann #672, plus Clayton and Terry Hammond #695 who will also compete as a dual entry.

The BSCC would like to acknowledge the Pitman Family for the use of their property over the weekend, the sponsors German Autos, RevRange Components, DJK Air Conditioners and all club volunteers for their tireless work in getting this event off the ground!

Action gets underway from 10am Saturday with full catering and spectator facilities available from 7am both mornings, full COVID conditions will apply. See you trackside!
