Drag racing openings for mates to race their mates

DRAG RACING: The Warwick Drag Racing Association has its gate open to all prospective drivers and riders for a Test And Tune/Elimination meeting on Saturday.

The event will be the second this year at the dragway and Unreal Number Plates are sponsored the trophies.

Association vice president John Loy said he was hoping for at least 40 cars.

"This meeting is open to anyone with a drag racing vehicle or a street car/bike. We are keen to attract some young drivers keen to race their mates in a safe environment on the dragway,” Loy said.

The cost is $40 to race with $20 for a licence on the day.

Loy said motorcycles, junior dragsters, competition cars and street cars would all be at the dragway on Saturday.

Gates open at noon with test and tune from 3pm. Action will continue well into the night.

Some drivers are competing in competition cars on Saturday as a forerunner to the JP Racing Dragfest Series, which starts with round 1 at Warwick Dragway on March 11-12 this year.

The second round of the series will be October 14-15 as part of Dragfest during a year when the JP Racing promotion is only being held in Warwick.

Dragfest is traditionally the biggest meeting of the year at Warwick Dragway.

Admission tomorrow will be $10, under 13 free.
