Sydney Dragway has released a statement addressing concerns about the 2011 FUCHS Australian Nationals.
This event will go ahead, It will be a sensational opening to the 2011-2012 Drag Racing season.
The team in Sydney together with major event partner FUCHS, Rocket Industries for the Rocket All Stars Racing Series, Drag Ltd and ANDRA will bring you three days of spectacular racing. After some major works over the past month the track is ready. We look forward to welcoming you back. Make sure you are there as part of the new season and be part of the resurgence of drag racing at Sydney Dragway.
Many of you have asked about entries, our advertising program and prize money for this event.
Entries – These have opened. We recommend you use the website and the online facility. Entries will close midnight August 21st a little earlier than may have been the case in the past. This is to enable more effective programming, advertising and promotion. Help us to help you.
Advertising – With significant corporate support secured a substantial advertising program has been initiated. This includes National magazines, metropolitan and local press, radio, metropolitan and regional television and off site promotions. Keep your ears and eyes open – we will welcome any feedback.
Prize money – As we have previously advised prize money can only come from sponsorships, entries and/or spectators. Prize money for this Fuchs Nationals event which totals $160,725 will be paid. We are looking towards the equivalent of 8,250 paying spectators over the two days of Saturday and Sunday as well as an equivalent of 352 entries based on 80 Group 1, 230 Groups 2, 3 and 4 and 42 Juniors. This level of support will do two things – make for a great event AND if these numbers are exceeded put us in a position to address the matter of the outstanding prize money from the NITRO CHAMPS. This should help and we want to do it!!!
So with guaranteed prize money we look forward to your commitment!
Sydney Dragway is committed – FUCHS is committed
All the event now needs is YOU.
