DRAG CHALLENGE 2017

Everything you need to know about Street Machine Drag Challenge 2017:

EVERYONE has an opinion on what constitutes a street car, and the quicker the cars get the more intense the argument becomes; how do you decide what’s street and what’s not?

So we thought we would take a leaf out of Hot Rod’s book and create our own version of their successful Drag Week, which pits racer and machine against one of the most gruelling road and track tests imaginable – we call it Street Machine Drag Challenge. It’s the toughest test for street cars in the country.

This year we are starting at Adelaide International Raceway on the 13th of November, with the other tracks being Portland, Mildura and Swan Hill, with the final day back at AIR.

Thanks to our sponsors Haltech, Turbosmart, K&N air filters, Tuff Mounts and Pacemaker Headers.
