Matheson to light up Santos Super Extreme 3

This article brought to you by:


Multiple Australian Top Fuel Motorcycle champion and national record holder Chris Matheson and his Nitro Voodoo Team plan to excite the fans at the upcoming Santo’s Cranes Super 3 Extreme Drag Race event on 18-19 April at Willowbank Raceway in Queensland.

“Last year we did eight passes for the fans over the two days, all over 200 mph and set two new milestones along the way,” he said.

“We broke our national ET record of 6.059, running a 6.04 and rewrote history running at 241.8 mph. “Since then, we had a mixed year, with some huge highs and a crash at Sydney Dragway in May 2013, stepping off at almost 231 mph (380 kph).”

Matheson suffered multiple injuries, but not enough to dull his enthusiasm for the illusive five second barrier, yet to be achieved in Australia on a motorcycle.

“We have a new, improved fuel bike, which has the potential to break into the five second zone, we just need the moons to align to do it,” he said.

“We have run multiple 6.0s, but need to lean a little harder to achieve our goal.

“All the conditions including track surface, air temperature, wind direction all need to be right to give us the opportunity to run quick.”

Chris Porter of Bad Bones Racing will pair up with Matheson to maximise fan excitement. Porter, no stranger to Top Fuel Motorcycles, is current Australian champion on his V-Twin Nitro Harley and will be gunning for Matheson’s Santo’s Cranes Super 3 Extreme crown.

Porter dominated the 2013 championship, with consistent fast racing throughout the season. His Fraser Motorcycles-sponsored machine has undergone a series of upgrades for the 2014 season and combined with Porter’s killer reaction times, will be motivation for Matheson.
