Australia's newest dragstrip has opened for business. Springmount Raceway felt the sound of rumbling engines for the first time at a members only test day to check the venue operations ahead of its official opening on March 19.

Located a hour west of Cairns near the township of Mareeba, Springmount is a full quarter mile dragstrip with quite possibly the most stunning mountain backdrop or any dragstrip in the land.

The Grand Opening event will feature a pair of Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars to give the local a taste of nitro before the whole show rocks up on August 6th.
