CONCERNS about possible road closures was a factor in the decision to cancel the second day of the first round of the Queensland Super Sprint Championships for A-series drivers.

Warwick District Sporting Car Club president Bill Campbell said 101 drivers made it to Warwick for the sprints.

"We completed four runs on Saturday despite light rain most of the day," Campbell said.

"Competitors progressively took the option during the day to pack up and head home due to worry over possible road closures.

"With so many withdrawals, the decision was then made to cancel the rest of the meeting."

Gold Coast driver Darren Siddins was the quickest and his brother, John, second fastest driver.

Darren drove a Mark 1 Escort and John in a 260Z Datsun.

B-series drivers will compete in their first round this weekend with more than 100 expected.
