If you didn’t already think Darwin was becoming a hot spot for new drag cars, we now have fresh pictures of yet another Top Alcohol Funny Car destined for Hidden Valley Drag Strip in 2012.
The proud new owner, Jay Henning, had the car loaded in the US last week and it’s on its way to Darwin where Henning plans to commence testing early in the season.
The 2008 Dodge modelled carbon fibre body hides a 526ci supercharged Hemi V8 and has rumoured to have run 5.80 seconds. History has shown it was campaigned in America by both Chris Brown and Leroy Dewdney.
Being one of only a handful of Outlaw racers who have dipped into the 6 second zone on the old Hidden Valley Drag Strip racing surface, Henning is still undecided on what class he will run his new car and he’s keeping quiet on what he expects the new Dodge to run.
Henning has taken the step up from his AA/MA altered which is now for sale to make way for the new car (give Bronte Henning a call on 0418893892).
The big question now is who will be the first Territorian to run a 5 second pass at Hidden Valley Drag Strip?
