The methanol-sucking monsters are back!

Love speed, the smell of methanol and the vibration of V8s then you won’t want to miss the action of the V8 Jetsprints where high-speed adrenaline junkies make split-second decisions and hesitation could mean elevation (to an island or suspension in a fence that is!). Bring your family (but not the family pets), bring a blanket and be entertained by one of the fastest machines on the planet reaching speeds of 140km in under 2 seconds.

Watch as they navigate their way around the tight channels in a course about the size of a rugby field all of them pushing hard for the ultimate glory of winning.

Food caravans will be on site, and this event also has flushing toilets. This event is on a farm so it’s important to dress accordingly. Please NO PETS, this is an accredited farm.
