The following has been released by Calder Park Drag Racing today, the 18th of December 2017.
As a few of you may have already heard, The Australian Nationals will not go ahead as initially planned on the 26th and 27th of January, 2018.
Unfortunately, with the late withdrawal of the 400Thunder Group One categories and with only six weeks to go, it is not practical to run the event as planned. We do hope that you understand this has been an extremely difficult decision and one that was not taken lightly. This event was viewed as a major step forward that we hoped would bring the sport together again nationally, but it is unfortunately being postponed.
While this event will not go ahead, we can confirm we are working in conjunction with Calder Park management on a plan to resurface the asphalt portion of the drag strip together with some other upgrades. Planning and negotiations are well advanced and we are sure you will all be pleased with the end result (which we will keep you posted on).
A return to Championship racing at the venue is expected very soon following the abovementioned upgrades.
