Warwick retains Whoop Ass Cup at the drags

WARWICK retained the Whoop Ass Cup in the annual drag racing competition against Toowoomba.

The Warwick team won six races to one in the battle between teams of seven on Saturday.

The cup was contested in conjunction with round five of the track championships.

Club publicity officer John Loy said it was a good day at the end after a slow start due to the hot weather.

"Drivers watch the weather a lot, they prefer to race when it is cooler and some did personal bests at night," Loy said.

Warwick driver Nathan Steinberger won the street- class bracket on Saturday.

Lyn Stewart, a member of the Warwick club, won super street but when it came to the Whoop Ass Cup, she was captain of the Toowoomba team that went down to Warwick.

The modified bikes class on Saturday was won by Mark Woods, who rides for Hendon group L&K Motorsports.

The Quick ET class was won by Warwick driver Matthew Loy.

The event at the weekend was the final race meeting for the year.

Club members or prospective new members are welcome to the club Christmas party and fun day on December 6 from 2pm.

All trophies for 2014 track championship winners will be presented during the Christmas party.

On Friday, drag racers from many areas will be in town and racing at Warwick Dragway from 6-9pm as part of Dragweek.

Racing is for street-registered cars, with some of the fastest street-registered cars in the nation set to be at the dragway.

All the drivers will overnight in Warwick on Friday before heading to Willowbank on Saturday for more racing.
