Racing Queensland has announced the 10 promising reinsmen and women set to battle it out in next week’s BOTRA Queensland Young Drivers Championship.

Six heats will be run over three days starting at Albion Park's Thursday meeting, and concluding on Saturday night's metropolitan meet at Albion Park.

Defending Champion Lachie Manzelmann returns to try and win back-to-back championships, after he won on countback from Danni-elle McMullen in 2017.

Danni-elle’s sister Narissa McMullen comes into the series after she claimed the 2017 Australasian Young Drivers Championship at Albion Park in December. Joining the pair for the first time in 2018 will be younger sister Taleah McMullen.

Unfortuantely leading young driver Nathan Dawson will take no part in the series due to a 10-day suspension, however the depth of talented young drivers in Qld means the series will be a competitive one.
