MOTORSPORT: Round two of the Central Queensland Stadium Short Course Championship could not have run any more smoothly according to event organiser Brent Taylor.

The second of three offroad races saw father and son Brad and Ned Hancock win their respective PRO Side-by-Side and Junior Side-by-Side classes.

Apart from the race results and who won what, Taylor praised all the volunteers and sponsors who have come on board.

"It was fantastic and we had really good and positive feedback from both competitors and spectators and everybody seemed to love it," he said.

Taylor said that aside from a couple of minor rollovers on the track, everything else went like clockwork.

"Just the flow of everything and it was really good to see everything that was happening on the track, as there always is, a couple of spills and rollovers and the crowd loves seeing that sort of stuff," he said.

Thankfully there were no injuries, but Rory Dormer's PRO 4WD suffered damage after his car took a hit.

"He was third, but unfortunately he had a pretty bad rollover early on in the piece and couldn't continue," Taylor said.

He added that there were quite a few who made the most of the camping facilities and motorsport fans enjoyed the close-up action.

"The ones that came should go away with a positive feel about it especially with all the new facilities," Taylor said.

"We had a little bit of dust early on in the day, but all in all the track held together really well," he said.

The final round of the series is on September 1.
