A number of new records were set at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway last month.

PC Group team driver Jason Grima went 6.982 and 195.79mph in Pro Stock to set new standards for the factory hot rods.

In Competition Greg Clayton went 6.131 and 224.55mph in BB/A while Craig Geddes went 7.517 and 174.53mph in E/AA, both earning bonus points for setting records under the new points structure for the Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship.

In Super Stock Jason Simpson ran an 8.263 in G/GA.

Super Compact was also the site of prominent record setting with Rod Harvey taking AA/SC to 6.418 and 224.58, one of three drivers to go under and over the AA/SC records. Michael Baghdadi reset CC/SM with a 7.416 and 187.52, but didn’t back up an epic 6.943 in the first round of eliminations. Meanwhile AA/SM and CC/SC had their speed minimums reset to 194.66mph and 187.99mph respectively. ANDRA reminds racers in Group Two in particular to cross the scales at the scrutineering shed for any run that could be claimed as part of a record.

Two Modified Bike records were also set with Michael Beaton taking the C/MB speed mark to 141.43mph, while Rex Baker put D/MB into the nines at 9.996 and also took the speed at 135.99mph.
