Gold Coast 600 Race of Stars

The ARMOR ALL Gold Coast 600 week-long festival will begin with the Race of Stars on October 19, 2013.

V8 Supercars and Karting Queensland will present the Race of Stars at Pimpama’s Xtreme Karting Facility, featuring top racing drivers from Australia. The event will also feature three karting Pro categories – Pro Gearbox, Pro Light and Pro Junior, and three state-based classes, which are TaG 125cc, Junior National and Cadets. There will be a ProAm race as well on the 1125-metre circuit.

Each of the Pro categories will have 28 drivers, along with CIK Stars of Karting’s top 20 drivers, in which every driver will receive their first invitation for their own category. After the races, prize money of over $10,000 will be given to each category winner. The category winners and Cadets drivers will also participate in the Surfers Paradise street parade on October 20.

The Race of Stars will not only showcase the best young talent who will be the V8 racing stars of the future, but also the sport of karting itself. The event will be supported and co-hosted by all the clubs in Queensland.
