Queensland Raceway, situated in Willowbank near Ipswich is also known as the 'Paperclip' on account of its U-shaped layout. The circuit, opened in 1999, offers four different layouts. The main straight is named after Queensland's best-known motor sportsman: five-time Australian touring car champion Dick Johnson officially opened the pit lane named after him on 16 August 2001.
Various structures, such as the pit lane buildings and grandstands are to be found on the outside of the circuit. The infield is totally undeveloped, permitting unbridled views of the entire circuit for spectators. The circuit was totally re-asphalted in the autumn of 2011.
