    Default Sunday Street Meet at Sydney Dragway September 24, 2017

    Are you keen to race your pride and joy, but canít make it down on a Wednesday night? Why not come down for our Sunday Street Meet down at Sydney Dragway?


    Sunday Street Meets are held on selected Sundays (at least once a month) and give you the opportunity to take part in some off-street drag racing and turn some tyres on the burnout pad Ė just like Race 4 Real Wednesdays!

    Gates open at 8am, with the first car set to leave the start line at 10am. Burnout action will kick off at 4:00pm.

    For pricing and entrant details, head over to Sydney Dragway.

    Check out the video below for a taste of the action.

    See you at the Sunday Street Meet on September!

    2017?

    The last Sunday street meet got cancelled the night before due to lack of "pre-entries", only found out when we go to the gate, turns out they'd posted it on their Facebook but hadn't updated their website. Wish I lived closer to Willowbank!!

    Best run was 13.4 @ 100. Apart from the wind it was a good day

    Nice job, 13.4@100 is pretty good on street tyres, she hooks up well.

    Not as good as I'd like, had to limit how much throttle I used to avoid spinning the tyres. The best 60 foot was only a 1.9, on the 3rd run I tried stalling it a bit more and it just spun and was 2.4 60 foot.

    Overall I was pretty happy considering I drove to the track, raced and drove home without touching anything other than dropping the rear tyre pressure a little.

    It sounds healthy.

    Times aren't bad for tyres with very little grip when launching.

    I was right beside you a couple of times, didn't know it was you.

    Definitely a windy day !

    I also spotted EVL 253 in the line up but didn't get a chance to say Hi, couldn't find him later in the day... must have left early ?

    I thought it was your car but I wasn't 100% sure. EVL had an issue and put the car on trailer, I left around 3pm and he was getting ready to go then.

    which begs the question how good they check the track. so i left a cup plug on the track & several litres of non glycol coolant. yes there was kitty litter from someones elses mishap at the stripe.
