Drag racing action revving up in Warwick

DRAG RACING: September to November is crunch time for the Warwick District Drag Racing Association and for the volunteers, it is one event down and three to go.

The Six Banger Nationals at the weekend had a record number of entries and now members are looking forward to the VW Nationals on October 3-4 and Dragfest on October 17-18.

The highest-profile event in Warwick Dragway history is likely to be held on November 28-29 with the Summit Race Equipment Sportsmen Series in the Australian National Drag Racing Association pencilled in for Warwick.

Dragfest is expected to attract 200 drivers/riders.

Six Banger Nationals co-organiser Lyn Stewart said everyone had an absolute ball at the Six Banger Nationals last weekend.

"We had close to 90 entries for the Six Banger Nationals which is the most so far," Stewart said. The major trophy was in memory of her late husband Mark Stewart.

"Mark would have been very proud to give the perpetual trophy to winner Mick Borg from Sydney as they were great mates," she said.

"My son Norm drove a memorial pass in Mark' s altered before the start of the Six Bangers on Sunday.

"They are all coming back next year, they love it and describe the trip to Warwick as their annual holiday."

There were 108 entries for the club bracket meeting on Saturday.
