FANS of the V8 Supercars lapped up the atmosphere at Queensland Raceway at the weekend.

The Ipswich 300 thundered into town with thousands of people flocking to the event.

As the fully-charged cars stormed around the track, adults and kids enjoyed food, markets, merchandise stands and music.

Brisbane resident Dean Evans from Jamboree Heights camped out at the track over the weekend with his cousin and uncle.

The annual mission has been a regular for Mr Evans, 27, who has not missed a year in a decade.

"I love it, I wouldn't miss it for anything," Mr Evans told the QT on Saturday. "It's a good time to get together with the family and really get into it. We love camping and being able to be where the action is, even if it's for one night, we get to see it all."

Families from New South Wales made the trek in to enjoy the event at full throttle.

Mechelle Toth brought her twins Maxwell and Stirling, five, to soak up the roar and thunder of the iconic racing event.

"It's so good for the kids to be here - we're all having the best time," she said.
