Hope for a dry one for this Mopar Muscle Weekend

THE Queensland Chrysler Association is hoping for a dry weekend with the Mopar Muscle Weekend at Morgan Park to be cancelled if it's wet.

Queensland Chrysler Association president Darryl Elliot said the racing could not go ahead if it was raining.

"Unlike circuit racing, we can't race in the rain," Elliot said.

"The traction compound on the track makes it even more slippery if it's wet.

"We're trying not to think about it but, if it (rain) happens, we'll just have to reschedule the event."

Elliot says the weekend, which is the fifth time the event is being held in Warwick, will feature a 'dial your own' format.

"The first way to win is still to cross first," he said.

"But people nominate a time and, if they're faster than their nominated time, they lose.

"So drivers will need to be slower than their nominated time but still cross the line first."

While he will not be racing this weekend, Elliot has raced in the past and said all drivers would be aiming to get a good start.

"The main thing is to be sharp off the lights," he said.

"That's where a lot of races are won and lost.

"But with the format, it's important to be consistent so you know what time to nominate and then be able to match it too."
