OLD SCHOOL HORSEPOWER TO FIRE UP AT WILLOWBANK THIS SATURDAY

Article Date: 20 February 2013

Willowbank Raceway will host more than 120 nostalgia drag racing vehicles on track this weekend for the first Cruzin Magazine Nostalgia Drags event of 2013.

Amongst the field will be the very first Nostalgia Super Stock entrants, with the high-revving clutch-equipped pre -1978 racers to be lead by category organiser Jai Schluter of Warner (QLD).

The most popular class by far will be the World Class Muscle Cars Nostalgia Dial Your Own bracket, featuring more than 65 racers entered for the bracket which caters for vehicles that travel the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds or slower. Due to its massive size, this bracket will be broken down into small eliminators based on Elapsed Time results.

Joining the Nostalgia Super Stock and World Class Muscle Car Nostalgia DYO racers at Queensland’s premier drag racing facility will be racers from the Winters Smash Repairs Top Eliminator, Western Suburbs Diff Quick Eliminator, Donnelly Blasting Services Mid Eliminator, Shannons Insurance Super Eliminator, Autobarn Vintage Gas and Retro Bike brackets.

Willowbank Raceway Managing Director Steve Bettes said the weekend’s event was shaping up to be a great day out for all the family.

“Nostalgia events at Willowbank Raceway are really something – they just have a special quality about them,” said Bettes.

“The cars, the people, the on and off track activities – it all just combines for a great relaxed day at the drag strip with some awesome cars and performances to boot.

“With tickets just $25.00 and cheaper for students with ID while children 13 and under gain free entry, Cruzin Magazine Nostalgia Drags events at Willowbank Raceway are a great day out for all the family.”
