andra2 trophies gold silver copper

One of the most prized trophies in Australian championship drag racing has always been the ANDRA Christmas Tree trophy. Sometimes referred to as the holy grail, its the one everyone wants to show off to family and friends.

Welcome to the newest edition to the championship lineup - the copper ANDRA Christmas Tree. Following the announcement in June of the 2017 Summit Racing Queensland Championship series, ANDRA approved the addition of the copper trophy for all class winners.

The tri-series launched with Rd 1 at Palymra Raceway back in July and this Saturday, September 2nd see's Rd 2 hit Beneraby Raceway. The Grand Final of the Summit Racing Queensland Championship will be held at Ironbark Raceway on November 4th.

"When we were putting together the concept for the Summit Racing Queensland Championship we wanted to come up with something unique which initially was to be a half scale silver Christmas tree trophy, said ANDRA Acting GM Brett Stevens. "But after some more thoughts, we agreed on a full-size trophy in copper. We are hoping that it will stimulate some interest from not only local Queensland racers but also some interstate racers who want to add a copper tree to their display cabinet.
