Following confirmation from the Board of ANDRA ltd. the 2015 ANDRA Drag Racing Series Pro Stock Championship will continue as scheduled.
In all likelihood there will be two rounds of the championship completed, the Nitro Champs at Sydney Dragway and Fuchs Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway.
On page 64 of the 2015 ANDRA rulebook, section 2.11 states;
“Where at least three rounds are posted, ANDRA National Championship series are staged each season for Group One categories. All are included in the Australian Nationals, Winternationals and Nitro Champs events, with other rounds being scheduled independently”
Regarding the two remaining eligible entrants from the VPW Pro Series 1000 event at Adelaide International Raceway on March 14-15 2015, each entrant will receive 20 points as non-qualifiers as per page 67 of the 2015 ANDRA rulebook;
Insufficient Entrants: All Group One entrants present at rounds of their respective Australian Group One Championships will receive the minimum points available where the event is lost at any point or the round cannot be contested due to insufficient entries on the day of the event
ANDRA CEO Malcolm Bulley said; “While the outcome of the AIR event was less than ideal for any of the stakeholder groups, ANDRA does have rules that cover these scenarios. Even though it ended up being a match race on this occasion, the show they put on was a credit to the teams.”
