Australia’s quickest LS, a sportsman champion, new nitro bike and more in Drag News Magazine Issue 40

This article brought to you by:


Sam and Lorenzo Gullotto’s record setting LS-powered Pontiac graces the cover of Drag News Magazine’s 40th issue.

Following feedback from our readers, this issue of Drag News Magazine is more feature dense with an effort to cover all parts of the sport. Whether you like your drag racing on four wheels or two, turbocharged or naturally aspirated, eight cylinders or six, there is something for you in this issue. 

Our cover feature tells the story of Australia’s quickest LS-powered drag car, a combined effort between two brothers who have gravitated towards different parts of the sport. Sam Gullotto almost retired from the sport with a health scare, but it was his brother’s enthusiasm that brought him back.

Jason Arbery travelled thousands of kilometres in his pursuit of a second John Storm Memorial Trophy, an effort that has positioned him as one of the all time great sportsman drivers in Australia. We take a look at his winning Ford Capri and hear from the champ himself.

Luke Crowley claimed one of the last great barriers in Australian professional drag racing with a historic six second run on his Pro Bike in Sydney – he spills the beans on the crucial adjustment that made all the difference. Also on two wheels, Danny Rickard tells us about his move to a beautiful new nitro v-twin.

In our sport compact feature, Rod Harvey is back on the fray for the overall sport compact world record and believes he finally has the equipment to chase down the record once again. He discusses the development of his new car and whether or not he will ever leave the 2JZ world.

Plus, we wax lyrical on the future of four wide, including if we will ever see a four lane drag strip in Australia, and take in our feature event for this issue, the Easter Supercharged Shootout at Mildura.
