SPRINT MEETINGS
The Club's first sprint meeting was held at Strathpine on 25 or 26 June 1955 and sprints were run there until its closure. The results of that first sprint meeting can be accessed here. When Strathpine closed, Lowood became the site for these events until its closure.

Some events were then held at Lakeside with the most recent being held at Queensland Raceway. Most of these recent events now are part of the Ironman weekend.
