Designing and manufacturing jewellery by day and tinkering with his supercharged V8 Pro Slammer at night, life is a balancing act for Wallace Bishop Jewellers CEO Stuart Bishop as he prepares for this year’s 50th Gulf Western Oil Winternationals.

Stuart Bishop Racing is revving up a new immaculate Camaro Pro Slammer in preparation for this year’s event at Willowbank Raceway.

"I can’t wait to hit the (Winternationals) in the new Pro Slammer, it’s a whole new setup and learning curve but we are not racing to come second,” he said.

"The car is a work of art with carbon fibre every which way you look and even the little things manufactured in house by head crew chief Daniel Reed.

"If it needs to be made or we want to try something new, Daniel designs it and makes it happen, hopefully giving us that little edge we are all chasing for."

Testing has so far proved extremely positive, with Bishop carding a 5.77/253mph.

Five hundred racers will take part in the Winternationals festivities with thousands of drag racing fans traveling from all over the country and from around the globe to see the biggest drag racing event outside of North America.
