Extra Pro Stock round to light up Willowbank Raceway

THE Australian Pro Street Association and Willowbank Raceway have announced an addition to their respective calendars.

An extra round has been added for the 2015 APSA Series at Willowbank on October 3.

The series was last staged at the Raceway in March for its annual Pro Street Shootout event.

It was shaping to be the fastest and most competitive round in some time before wet weather intervened.

APSA promoter Peter Pisalidis said the new round will be the fourth for the 2015 series.

"We are really excited for this new round to feature a special bonus prize payout including a 'one-shot buy-in' that will allow our competitors to finally settle the score on who has the fastest Radial car in the country," Pisalidis said.

"This means that any Radial competitors can buy-in to be in the running for a $5000 prize and the all-important bragging rights of who is the fastest following intense side-by-side racing.''

Alongside the Radial competitors, the October event will host a full line-up of the toughest APSA Pro Street Cars, including Outlaw 10.5, Outlaw Extreme Pro Street, Outlaw Radial, X275, Mod Street, True Street, Pro street Bike, and DYO racers.

Willowbank Raceway CEO Tony Manson said the October Pro Street event was an exciting addition to an already bursting year-round racing program.

"This event is already shaping up to be a truly intense Pro Street battle that is sure to delight racers and fans alike, so we can't wait to see how the action unfolds here come October."
