Powercruise is the brainchild of Michael ‘Gup’ Gilbert from Brisbane, Australia and he created the Powercruise concept so car enthusiasts could drive their cars the way they were built to be driven without breaking the law. Together with a select team of staff, volunteers and officials, Powercruise entertains over a quarter of a million spectators annually and attracts over 3500 entrants which proved his theory that there was a necessity for an event of this calibre…
"An event where you can do all the things your not allowed to do anywhere else"
