DOORSLAMMER STAR TRIUMPHS AT PRO STREET SHOOTOUT
Article Date: 14 March 2011
ANDRA Pro Series star Ben Bray punctuated the Pro Street Shootout winners list at Willowbank Raceway at the weekend, taking victory in the popular APSA Outlaw 10.5 category during the Australian Pro Street Association event.
Bray took the win from fellow track regular and local Tony Wedlock, with the Doorslammer regular’s Toyota Celica punching out a 6.764 second pass at 207.15 miles per hour to beat Wedlock’s Toyota Aurion (7.093 seconds at 193.32mph) to the end of the quarter mile.
Also taking to the track, and taking victory, were Craig Hewitt in Pro Street Blown, Matt Marsh in Pro Street Unblown, Joe Gauci in Staunch Supplements Modified Street Blown, Geoff Campbell in Modified Street Unblown, Shane Baker in Monster Car Club True Street Blown, Grant Hughes in True Street Unblown, Rob Bertolacci in Outlaw Radial and Jason Stoodley in the Willowbank Raceway Dial Your Own bracket.
Modified Street Blown racer and co-owner of the Australian Pro Street Association Johnny Wilson heralded the event a great success.
“To have over 100 competitors here on race day, including the new class of True Street Blown, was something we were really happy about,” said Wilson.
“Pro Street is just growing from strength to strenth at the moment and the racing at the weekend was testament to that, it was a great weekend, with many hard fought battles across all of the brackets providing thrills for racers and spectators alike.
“While I might not have won in my bracket (Wilson was runner-up to categoriy winner Joe Gauci), I can definitely call this event a great success, and we are rearing to go for the rest of the APSA championship series."
Please see below for final round results for each of the Pro Street brackets.
