IN 1988, students in Warwick State High School's graduating class parted ways but some were reunited at the Allman Park Race Track on Saturday.

The former classmates chose the Ergon Energy Race Day as the meeting point to reminisce about days gone by and share stories about where their lives had taken them.

Some travelled from Brisbane and as far away as Darwin, while others only had to drive a few blocks from their Warwick homes.

Lynette Braddock said the races were the ideal spot to hold the event and made for a fun day out for the former school friends.

"We chose the races because we love it and it is an easy get-together and great social event for everyone," she said.

"It has been great to see everyone and we are going to head for dinner and drinks at the RSL after the races have finished."

Former local girl Deborah Coulton traded the Warwick winters for more tropical weather when she migrated north to Darwin.

She said returning to Warwick's chilly temperatures had not been easy.

"I am the only person from Darwin here and I am freezing," she said.

Ms Coulton said she loved catching up with old friends, even if things got off to a rocky start.

"Nobody recognised me so I had to keep asking people if they knew who I was," she said.
