In what appears to be an attempt to burn rubber at every strip in the south east, the Australian Nostalgia Racers have teamed up with Swan Hill Drag Racing Club to host the first Swan Hill Nostalgia Drags. Brackets for Pre-1980 US and Aussie Muscle and Hot Rods will cater for most streeters, while Top Eliminator, Middle Eliminator and Top Gas are reserved for the big boys. Of course the Vintage Gas brigade will be there in full force!
The format is yet to be locked in, but expect qualifying and racing on Saturday, capped off with a night time shindig with live music. Sunday will be grudge racing for nostalgia entrants, but also a test and tune open to all comers. There will also be ‘passenger rides’ for those who purchase an ANDRA day licence, time and vehicles permitting.
The much anticipated quarter mile track has received great reports and the Australia Nostagia Racers are keen to get involved and help the new facility generate some much needed income. Swan Hill is around a four hour drive north of Melbourne.
The meeting is scheduled for the weekend of May 26-27. Entry forms should be online by the time you read this, race into www.swanhilldrc.com.au for details. Otherwise you can catch up with the Australian Nostalgia Racers on facebook.
