In 1965 the Club was granted access to land at Morgan Park where Motor Gymkhanas were a regular events. 1968 saw the grading of the first motor racing circuit at Morgan Park, with the race meeting conducted of the 16th March, 1969. The major race meeting of the year was the October Rodeo Meeting which in 1970 received an hours television coverage from what is now Channel nine.

In 2001 the circuit was extended to 2.1km allowing for State Championship Motor Racing. From here on life has never been the same at Morgan Park Raceway. With earthworks commencing in January 2002 and the bitumen being laid at Easter the first Round of the Qld Motor Racing Championships held at Morgan Park Raceway was on the 21st & 22nd September 2002.

From then on things have gone from strength to strength with improvements happening all the time, to what we have today. In December 2006 the Circuit was fully resurfaced, keeping it as Queenslands Premier Motor Sport Venue. In 2007 all 6 Rounds of the Qld Motor Racing Championship were held at Morgan Park Raceway, along with the Formula Vee and Improved Production Touring Car Nationals in September of the same year.
