Chargers, Valiants keen for meet
CHRIS Loy thinks 2012 will be a bumper year for the Warwick District Drag Racing Association, which starts its program with a bracket meeting this weekend.
"We have plenty of good meetings planned and just want a bit of luck with the weather," president Loy said.
"This year, we are concentrating on running two-day events so the drivers who travel long distances can make it more worthwhile."
Already this year, a number of drag racing meetings around Australia have been cancelled due to wet weather which, Loy believes, will help boost numbers at the remaining meetings.
He said there had been a lot of interest in the nostalgia event tomorrow.
"Even though it is competitive racing, it is still a lot of fun and not at the professional level," Loy said.
"Most of the nostalgia cars are street rods from the 1970s and muscle cars like Monaros, Chargers and GT Falcons.
"Members of the Queensland Chrysler Club will bring Valiant four doors and Chargers to the meeting.
"Today, we will have our usual line-up of junior dragsters, super sedans, modifieds and a couple of super-charged outlaw cars in action."
- Gates open 10am today, 8am tomorrow
- Qualifying/racing from 1pm today, 10am tomorrow
- Racing expected to last until 9pm today
