The 2015 Sydney Jamboree could be best summed up as an event of attrition, the car casualty rate was high and props must go to the Sydney Dragway officials who pushed on through what seemed like endless breakages. That said, the Jamboree still produced its usual fair share of wheelstands, wild passes and two step flame throwing action.

Here are the final results of those left standing to hold up the J trophy. 

Factory Xtreme
MarkJacobsen FX 3560 070315 15

The giant crash between Malcolm Glassett and Scott Porter was the low point of the headlining Factory Xtreme class, but fortunately both racers walked away unscathed. The FX cars struggled to find bite in the muggy conditions early on but times started to fall later in the day with Mark Jacobsen saving the world’s quickest GTR run until the final with a 6.53 at 210mph defeating Joe Signorelli.

Pro Turbo

Outlaw Extreme

FrankMamone OE 670 070315 01
The popular Outlaw Extreme class brings some high tech V8 horsepower into the Jamboree scene. Paul Mouhayet was back with his repaired and rebuilt Outlaw 10.5 Mustang along with host of other turbo and blown combatants that thrilled the crowd with low six second runs. The final was blower versus turbo dual with Frank Mamone’s Nova on song against the GAS Motorsport Mustang of Zoran Gajic that was sitting on a 6.15 best run for the day. The Mustang bogged off the line in the final as the Nova set sail for the finish and the win with a 6.53.


JoeSorbello EX 4808 070315 04
The Extreme bracket is for any kind of vehicle that does not fit into the other classes but still meets Jamboree requirements. Sydney Dragway permanent fixture Joe Sorbello would line up with newcomer Craige Lewis in the final, Sorbello’s supercharged ’78 Skyline had the holeshot at the green and Lewis rocketed past too quickly on the top end with a gigantic breakout from his twin turbo Cortina, an impressive 7.88 on 275 radials from a genuine streeter had the team stoked though.

Modified 10.5
