Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th June 2017 

Willowbank Raceway’s Winternationals achieves a golden milestone in 2017 when Australian drag racing fans will celebrate the 50th running of the classic event.

The occasion is a double celebration for Willowbank Raceway as it is the 30th time the Winternationals as been held at the track.

The race, the largest championship drag racing event held outside of North America, is the final round of the 400 Thunder season for all of the country’s championships. 

From the amazing flame-throwing Top Fuelers through to Junior Dragsters, every bracket that competes for national championship honours will be represented at the Winternationals, with more than 400 cars and motorcycles from all over the country expected to be on track over four big days of racing.

Be there from Thursday, June 8 to Sunday, June 11 to watch the stars of today’s 500km/h sport, honour those racers and officials who have been part of the history of this iconic event and get your all-important 50th Winternationals merchandise.

There is non-stop action each day from June 8 to June 11, both on and off the track, with thrilling racing complimented by a wide range of activities near the seating areas and in the competitor paddock – all conducted in a festive atmosphere. Spectators have a range of viewing options available to them, from finding a grassy spot on “the hill” to general admission and reserved grandstand seating; while corporate guests have a range of options available from the permanent fixtures of the instantly recognisable Willowbank Raceway corporate centre and the Corporate Club to the purpose-built Sky Marquee of the Winternationals.
