The annual Leyburn Motor Sprints, one of Australia's leading historic and classic car competitions, will return to Queensland's Darling Downs.

Spectators and competitors are treated to an array of exciting sprint racing classes including open wheelers and sports cars of various engine capacities and ages, as they hum around the timed one kilometre circuit, leisurely winding their way around the houses and through the heart of Leyburn, is an accurate description of Leyburn's biggest annual event.

How To Get There

Leyburn is located in the Southern Downs Region, Queensland, Australia. A sleepy little township which was once a bustling goldfield. Leyburn is 219 kilometres southwest of Brisbane and 36 kilometres from Clifton, Toowoomba is approximately 75 kilometres away and Warwick is approximately 60 kilometres away so it is out there on its own, except for two days each year when it comes alive.

Pet Extract

No animals are allowed at this event as they are a danger during motor racing.
