With Sydney Dragway and Calder Park undergoing renovations and Perth Motorplex closed for the winter, Willowbank Raceway is virtually the only major quarter-mile facility operating right now in Australia, and racers have been turning out in droves to test and tune.
Here are a few machines that caught our eye, scroll down if you want to see the full gallery thanks to Drag Photos!
Terri Jones, daughter of former Comp blown altered record setter Wayne Jones, had her dragster out for the first time – more on this one soon.
Adding to our difficulties in keeping up with the Leahy family, Chelsea Leahy is now racing a very sweet blown FED. We will also have more on this rad rail soon!
We don’t have an ID on this COPO Camaro – if the owner would like to send us an email we would love to help tell your story!
Rustie Willshire upgraded to the A/JD class with some successful licensing runs.
If you were racing on the day and would like to let us how you went, please email us and fill us in! As Australian drag racing gets back on its feet we want to tell as many stories as possible.
