THE Brisbane Jamboree at Willowbank Raceway on August 30 will feature none other than the UK's world record-breaking Sport Compact dragster John Bradshaw.

The UK's quickest import drag racer, Bradshaw will take the wheel of the now-complete Nissan 350Z he sold to Australian Factory Xtreme racer Scott Porter when he got out of the UK drag racing scene in 2012.

His presence is part of Australia's largest hi-tech automotive lifestyle event.

"Up until two years ago, I had a great team behind me and we really smashed all records for import drag cars in Europe," Bradshaw said.

"Including setting the fastest ever time for a Nissan Skyline in the world at 7.45 seconds, and being the first team to ever run a six second pass with an import car (6.75s, Project Zed 3.51 Twin Turbo Nissan 350z).

"Racing in Australia is a dream I have held for years.

"Competitive competition is what gets me excited, and I have been watching hundreds of videos and it is clear that the best place in the world for sports compact racing is Australia.

"The Brisbane Jamboree has grown brilliantly and taken Factory Xtreme racing to another level in terms of professionalism and exposure - I can't wait to get amongst it."

Bradshaw will race a car built by the renowned Jim Geese in his days at Vanishing Point Cars in the United States, which he sold prior to completion to Australia's Porter.

Bradshaw is expected to be joined on track by more than 200 racers competing across a range of Sport Compact brackets, including an exciting field of Outlaw 10.5 cars. Also on-site at the event will be a drift exhibition and more.
