HISTORIC LEYBURN SPRINTS
The Historic Leyburn Sprints will welcome more than 200 historic, classic and performance cars and up to 15,000 spectators for two days of round-the-houses time trials on the closed streets of Leyburn. Celebrating the 1949 Australian Grand Prix run, the Sprints is the 2017 Queensland Motor Sport Event of the Year and one of Australia’s most popular historic motorsport events. Renowned for its grassroots country atmosphere centred on the 1863 Royal Hotel, the community-run Sprints also hosts a Show ‘n’ Shine car display, vintage caravan display, markets and other attractions. A lucky raffle winner will take a ride in one of Australia’s fastest historic racing cars, a 1968 McLaren M1B.
