Team Bray Racing will head to Sydney Dragway this week for the final round of the 2012/2013 ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship, to be held at Sydney’s Australian Nationals this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (1-3 November 2013).
Father and son Victor and Ben Bray – currently third and fourth in the title chase respectively – will be part of a 19-strong Doorslammer field battling for just eight race day spots in the season finale.
As well as intense racing, the Australian Nationals will also host a significant announcement for Team Bray regarding its plans for 2014 and beyondas well as the unveiling of a brand new livery for Ben Bray’s Monaro.
“As the finale for the 2012/2013 ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship you can be guaranteed that this weekend’s racing at Sydney Dragway is going to be intense,” said Victor Bray.
“As far as Ben and I go, we are currently third and fourth in the championship and we want to keep it that way, mathematically I could make it to second but absolutely everything would have to go my way and that just isn’t the way of our sport more often than not!
“Sydney has always been tough when it comes to Doorslammer racing for us despite our successes in Top Alcohol and Sport Compact at the venue, so we will be working hard to try and change that this weekend while putting on a great show for the fans to see out the year.”
Victor and Ben Bray will make their first on-track appearance this weekend on Saturday for qualifying, but before they do they will be on-site Friday to make a special announcement regarding their 2014 plans while also unveiling a brand new look for Ben’s Monaro Doorslammer.
“What better setting to announce our plans for the upcoming year than at Sydney Dragway as the final championship round for the year comes to life around us?” said Ben Bray.
“I am very excited to be able to take the covers off the new look for the Monaro, I just hope the fans love it as much as I do!
“I am also looking forward to getting back on-track in Sydney – over the last year or so the venue has been undergoing a lot of changes in management and structure and each time we have come here it has just been getting better and better. This weekend will be the first time we get to experience the newly resurfaced breaking area, so I can’t wait to see what the Australian Nationals have in store.”
As well as the usual suspects on track, there will also be some international faces at the Australian Nationals this weekend.
“With a couple of well-credentialed US tech experts attending the Australian Nationals this weekend as well as an international racer in the form of Tommy Johnson Jr in Top Fuel and well-known Competition Plus editor Bobby Bennet, we have a great chance to showcase this event and our sport internationally as well,” said Victor Bray.
