Last weekend saw Sydney Motorsport Park’s first ever Shindo 400 event; a multi-class 400 metre sprint battle of various classes like the Garage vs Garage, Girls vs Girls, True Street Racers and Super Car Exotics. With categories like those, I couldn’t let myself pass up the chance to check out the hype.

It wasn’t long before I found out that it’s more than just a sprint event. Spectators could receive the full automotive experience with other mini-events like drifting, show ‘n’ shine, live DJ sets, Shindo after-party and ‘Nightshift’ hosted by Queen Street Customs.
