What if we held this in QLD , who would still travel? Warwick Dragway 1/8th mile event, we could have a 2 day event ? And you can run up to 120mph on the 1/8th mile without roll Cage.

If you would like to purchase the naming rights to the event please feel free to contact me with a healthy offer for the name, Until then when and if my funds allow i will organize another event when the right time comes.

It wont be on an 1/8 mile track as it wont be very exciting and i highly doubt you would get more than 10 cars to an event like that especially in QLD. Nor would any big names likely attend.


Leave it with me and when i get the $$$ and the time ill arrange something. Its not that i dont want too.
Cheers

Why would 8th mile racing be less exciting?

If you have a spare 20k to help fund part of the exercise we can start booking dates. Until then leave it with me. Hopefully 2017 will be the year.

Thanks Chafe.

Nothing wrong with 1/8th mile, doesn't take any less skill/setup then 1/4 if anything requires more.

Heads up racing it very competitive, if you bugger the start, you will have a hard time chasing them down due to the length of the track. My car was running a conservative 10.4@140 at healthcote and I was struggling against 13 second cars on the 8th just due to their consistent reactions/times.

But I believe most 8ths are now ANDRA sanctioned too.
