TODAY was registration day for Street Machine Drag Challenge, at Adelaide International Raceway. Over 120 cars fronted up to scrutineering today, ready for racing tomorrow.
Rod Born’s twin-turbo, blow-through carby equipped SBC-powered LJ Torana sitting pretty.
Check out the wild new twin-turbo set up on Harry Haig’s HQ!
Glenn Archer’s RA28 Celica is down from Canberra. The little weapon is powered by a 1.5JZ six – otherwise known as an aspirated Toyota 2JZ bottom end, with a 1JZ top end. The car has a 10.7-second PB to its name so far, with very limited track time
Jarrod Wood’s XT Falcon is one tough street car and a welcome addition to the Drag Challenge roster.
Lewis Mason has done every Drag Challenge riding shotgun in his dad’s El Camino – this is his first event in his HQ van.
This twin-turbo SBF powered Ford from the Competition Engines stable could be our the fastest Ford of the event. Owner John Stoumpos has run a 8.0-second PB on pump fuel – but since that time was run it has been converted to run on E85 and fitted with bigger turbos.
After a big thrash, Paul Hamilton’s 601ci twin-turbo XA Falcon made it to Drag Challenge! We can’t wait to see it run.
Matt Hohenhaus has moved down from Queensland with his 1JZ-powered XM Falcon and is straight into Drag Challenge life.
Gates open at 8.00am tomorrow at Adelaide International Raceway, with racing kicking off at 10.00am. Entry is $20, kids under 14 free!
