Slamfest series shelved for 2014

Pro Modified Australia has made the announcement that the Slamfest series, which took many of Australia’s Top Doorslammer stars to regional venues, will not be happening this season. The predominantly eighth mile-based series said through their official Facebook page that due to the larger amount of rounds than before in the ANDRA national championship, Slamfest would not be happening at all this year. A number of replies to comments on the page had indicated that the series would not go ahead but this is the first official word that has been provided. Slamfest was originally created by Top Doorslammer racers to give themselves more events to race at, but with the addition of Melbourne and Adelaide to the national calendar recently dates have been harder to come by. The Slamfest events were renowned for attracting big crowds of spectators and delivering wild supercharged sedan action. “The drivers and teams of the Slamfest series want to thank all their supporters. And would like to say that we hope to be back in the near future. To bring the fastest door cars on the planet back to the regional tracks where it all started,” the statement concluded. Regional tracks aren’t likely to be left completely in the cold, with the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car series expected to attend many of the same venues as Slamfest. {fcomment}
