“We had more than 120 racers here at Warwick Dragway at the weekend and the atmosphere was just great,” said Winterburn.

“This series is all about laid-back fun racing, and I am so pleased to see that with every event that we run, that feeling is just growing and growing.

“While its laid-back, there has also been some great competitive racing action on track, and I can’t wait to see how this season continues to pan out with some tight points chases already in action with two rounds left to run.”

The Queensland Street Car Magazine Eighth Mile Series includes rounds of racing plus a Grand Finale, hosted by each track on a rotational basis year by year.
