This article brought to you by:


The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car show will take centre stage at Adelaide International Raceway as the coolest show in drag racing heads south, January 4, 2014.

With a huge line-up of 8 funny cars, the show is set to be the biggest nitro field ever assembled at the iconic Adelaide venue.

Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car Series Manager, Steve Bettes, was happy to confirm the announcement.

“The Aeroflow show has received plenty of interest after the event in Sydney, which in all my years in motorsport, is about the most positive I have ever seen the pit area as well as the grandstands.

“The racing was exceptional and Adelaide promises to be even better as many of the crews will be better for the experience,” smiled Bettes.

Driver of the Nitro Express, Rick Gauci, is one man looking forward to getting back behind the wheel.

“Winning in Sydney was a dream and I just can’t wait to go again! It’s just such a cool show and the camaraderie amongst the teams is something else – I just can’t wait to beat them all again,” laughed Gauci. Series’ star Shane Olive will now step into the LA Hooker funny car (recently driven by NHRA campaigner Ron Capps) for forthcoming rounds and this event will again feature an international flavour with New Zealand’s, Willy White in Back to the Future.

Other driver changes see ANDRA Group 2 heavyweight Justin Walshe take the wheel of Lets Boogie, whilst Anthony Begley will again be back in Shack Attack.

Paul Messineo will again be piloting the Dark Horse and following from his second place in Sydney, the Queenslander will be looking to go one better, as will The Bandit Trans-Am driven by Aaron Hambridge who impressed on debut in nitro racing.

Rino D’Alfonso of Racing Onn Promotions says it can’t come quick enough.

“This will be an evening show, Adelaide’s summer nights are the best in the country and the warm weather and 8 nitro burning beasts are about as good as it gets – bring it on!”

The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car Show features racing from 4pm till 10pm. Gates open from 9am.
