Flagstone will be revved up on Sunday as locals watch former Logan man Chaz Mostert race in the Bathurst 1000.

The free community event, organised by Peet Limited, is to celebrate Flagstone being an official event partner for the 2020 race and to bring residents together in a COVID-safe environment for the first time in many months.

Flagstone is transforming its adventure playground into an outdoor entertainment space for locals to watch the big race.

The day gets underway at 11.30am.

Mostert, a former Hills College student, is partnering Warren Luff in the Mobil 1 Appliances Online Racing Team, driving car 25.

Mostert won Bathurst in 2014 before a serious crash in qualifying the following year ruined his hopes of defending the crown.

Residents are invited to enjoy a range of family-friendly activities including a slot car track and cardboard car making for the kids as well as local food trucks.

Peet Limited chief executive and managing director, Brendan Gore, said Flagstone's adventure playground and surrounding open space was a drawcard for the community, making it the perfect spot to host a viewing of the race.

"It has been a challenging time for the community during COVID-19, so we are pleased to bring our residents together for the first time to host a viewing of this iconic event," he said.

"The Supercars Championship has a large following across south-east Queensland, and we are thrilled to bring the excitement of the Bathurst 1000 to Flagstone.

"Slowly but surely, in line with public health advice, we're looking forward to giving residents more opportunities to come together once again to embrace the thriving lifestyle on offer at Flagstone.

The event is a COVID-safe gathering and includes all necessary COVID-19 safety precautions.
