Tyre-burning heaven for drivers

MORE than 320 racers will descend on Willowbank Raceway this month, with the Australian Pro Street Association, the ANDRA Pro Series and the Rocket All Stars Racing Series all set to head to Queensland’s premier drag racing facility.

First up will be 108 Pro Street warriors who will take to the track for the APSA Pro Street Shootout on Saturday.

Racing will feature the Pro Street Blown and Unblown, Modified Street Blown and Unblown, Outlaw 10.5, Outlaw Radial, Dial Your Own and True Street Blown and Unblown brackets.

Australian Pro Street Association co-owner and racer Johnny Wilson said fans would not be disappointed by the quarter-mile show expected from the turbo and nitrous racers.

“Pro Street drag racing is all about street car enthusiasts and car lovers alike having the chance to watch some of Australia’s fastest Pro Street cars battle it out furiously for prizemoney and bragging rights,” Wilson said.

“We have some serious rivalries in the ranks, providing some fantastic emotion-charged racing every time we head to the track.

“Throw in some amazing cars, the race for prizemoney and championship points, and you have a recipe for some pretty full-on quarter-mile action.”

Saturday’s qualifying is from 10am, with racing from 5pm.

Two weeks later, the ANDRA Pro Series brackets of Top Fuel, Top Bike and Pro Stock Motorcycle will be in full flight at Willowbank Raceway for the Top Fuel Championships.

That event is across March 25-26.

Six flame-throwing Top Fuellers, eight nitro powered Top Bikes and 10 naturally aspirated Pro Stock Bikes will be joined by 190 sportsman racers of all varieties for the two-day event that forms part of the ANDRA Pro Series and Rocket All Stars Racing Series.

Tickets, starting at $35 for the Top Fuel Championships, are available through www.willowbankraceway. com.au
