Fans turnout at Burson Auto Parts ahead of Fuchs Winternationals

Article Date: 3 June 2015

The race fans of Ipswich and its surrounds have turned out tonight at Booval’s Burson Auto Parts store ahead of tomorrow’s start of the Fuchs Winternationals to meet two-time Top Fuel champion Phil Lamattina and seven-time Top Doorslammer champion John Zappia.

Burson Auto Parts are an official distributor of event sponsor Fuchs Lubricants, and are Australia’s trade specialist supplier of automotive aftermarket parts, accessories and workshop equipment.

Lamattina and Zappia were accompanied to the Brisbane Road store by Zappia’s Fuchs-sponsored Top Doorslammer, as well as promotional staff and the local Rotary Club in a perfect preamble to the largest drag racing event held outside of the United States.

“What great fun it has been tonight to meet some of the local race fans ahead of this week’s Fuchs Winternationals,” said Zappia.

“It is the biggest show in drag racing in this country and anywhere outside of the US, and as the finale for the national championship season it is going to be delivering thrilling racing across all four days.

“We can’t wait to get on track and take home that eighth Top Doorslammer national title and hopefully we can secure back-to-back Fuchs Winternationals victories while we are at it!”

The Fuchs Winternationals action will kick off with qualifying for the sportsman brackets tomorrow (Thursday 4 June) before all brackets are on track Friday through Sunday. For more information, schedules and entry lists please visit

ABOUT THE FUCHS WINTERNATIONALS
The Fuchs Winternationals is the jewel in the crown of Willowbank Raceway and the Australian drag racing industry.

A truly iconic event, not only is the Fuchs Winternationals the largest championship drag racing event held outside of North America, it is also the final championship round of the season for all of the country’s drag racing brackets.

From the amazing flame-throwing Top Fuelers right through to Junior Dragsters, every single bracket that competes for national championship honours will be on-track at the FUCHS Winternationals, with more than 500 cars and bikes from all over the country expected to be on-track over four big days of racing.

This guarantees non-stop action all day from Thursday 4 June to Sunday 7 June both on and off the track, with thrilling racing complimented by a wide range of things to see and do in the pits and spectator entries – all amongst an awesome 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 Bendigo Bank Corporate Club to the purpose-built Sky Marquee of the Fuchs Winternationals.
