One of Australia’s best motorsports facilities has undergone some recent upgrades with work undertaken in the braking area at Sydney Dragway, the home of the Australian Nationals.

Originally opened in 2004, Sydney Dragway is multi-million dollar purpose-built facility, tailored for quarter mile drag racing.


SDbrakingareaWith the surface in the braking area recently starting to form some bumps due to some underground plumbing, Sydney Dragway management agreed to make the requisite changes to help keep the cars and bikes more stable when slowing down from the enormous speeds achieved in modern drag racing competition.


“We are very happy with the results,” explained Sydney Dragway CEO Graham Elliot.


“The team has completed the resurface of the braking area, return road and the water box, which will make things better for every single person who runs down the track.”


Sydney Dragway’s Venue and Event Manager, Ray Treasure was on hand to oversee the updates.


“We have used RTA heavy grade material, employed with profilers and laser line finishing. All outer edges are also heat and resin sealed. It means a better and safer racetrack for our racers and we are all happy to see that.”

The 2013 Australian Nationals comes to Sydney Dragway 1 – 3 November 2013.
