Festival of Horsepower

Festivals and Celebrations

28 Jun 2022 to 30 Jun 2022 Annual Event

Taking place in June, the City of Ipswich’s annual Festival of Horsepower includes a number of Australia’s signature racing and motorsport events.

If you are into horse racing join in the action at the TAB Ipswich Cup at the Ipswich Turf Club, Australia’s largest regional race day. Book your ticket for the Festival of Horsepower Marquee located on the home straight!

If motorsport is more your style, there is plenty of action at Willowbank Raceway. The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals is the largest championship drag racing event held outside of North America. From the amazing flame-throwing 500 kilometres an hour Top Fuelers through to Junior Dragsters, more than 500 cars and motorcycles from all over the country are expected to be on track over four big days of racing.

Over at Queensland Raceway, 2 Days of Thunder celebrates the Big Bangers of the motorsport world, both old and new – this year with Porsche Motorsport as the feature. Delivering two days of fast and hard racing action there is plenty to see and do with some of the loudest, fastest and most awe-inspiring categories thundering around the track.

If you are looking for a great day out for the whole family, there will be plenty of kart racing action at Ipswich Kart Club when they host Round 3 of the Rotax Pro Tour 2022!
