Drag racing fans are set for feast of supercharged Doorslammer action on SBS Speedweek this Sunday Feb 27 at 12.30pm (ESDT).
Fourteen of Australia’s leading Doorslammer racers, lead by championship leader Peter Kapiris, contested round two of the 2011 Slamfest Series in what has been widely hailed as the fledgling category’s best show to date.
The event was part of a huge weekend of activities in Portland raising funds for the Make a Wish Foundation and proved to be a fantastic promotion for the sport of drag racing and a real credit to the volunteer South Coast Raceway Team and Pro Modified Australia.
Prod Mod Australia principal, Maurice Fabietti and Category Coordinator Rob Oberg will also appear on tonight’s (Feb 24) episode of the Full Noise motorsport program on Speed Channel at 9.30pm (ESDT).
In addition to Sunday’s SBS Speedweek broadcast, the Slamfest for Wishes event will receive extensive television coverage with one hour shows on Inside Speed on Speed Chanel plus a one hour self titled Doorslammer show on FuelTV, Foxsports HD and international international distribution.
The 2011 Slamfest Series will now move on to Mildura on April 9 for Round 3. The following event on the calendar is at North Queensland’s Palmyra Dragway in Mackay on June 25 before the Slammers head back to Melbourne’s Calder Park Raceway for the Grand Final in November.
