TEST & TUNES
SWAN Hill is holding a Drag Challenge Test & Tune on Saturday 19 October. The track will be providing two fully prepped lanes, with a maximum of 50 cars. It’s $150 per entry, and you can pre-enter via email to the club at email@example.com and pay on the day.
Calder Park is also having a Test & Tune on the Friday prior to the event, 8 November. This is a great opportunity to test new combinations and sort out any bugs before race day.
TUFF MOUNTS TEE
OUR good friends at Tuff Mounts are looking to reward and champion their customers this Drag Challenge by giving them an exclusive Tuff Mounts Drag Challenge Contender T-shirt. These super-limited-edition shirts are specific to this event and only offered to Tuff Mounts customers. So, if you have Tuff Mounts in your car and want a rad free shirt, make sure you send Jason at Tuff Mounts a photo of your car, a photo of the mounts, some details of your car (including engine combo and best ET to date) and your shirt size to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARKING IN THE PITS
AS DRAG Challenge gets bigger, we have to work harder on traffic management within the venues. One thing that causes us some headaches is non-entrants parking in the pits, particularly at Calder and Swan Hill. So if you have some mates coming to cheer you on, don’t let them park up in the pits. Either enter the event or stay in the car park!
IF YOU are planning on bringing a fast car, make sure it has current ANDRA tech for the speeds you are hoping to run and that you have a current licence for same. Don’t think you can muddle through on the day; save the headaches and sort it out before the event.
SEARCH FOR THE ULTIMATE STREET CAR
ENTERED in Drag Challenge and think that five days of racing and cruising just isn’t enough? Then consider entering the Optima Search For The Ultimate Street Car, which happens straight after Drag Challenge at Calder Park, 16-17 November. Disciplines include drag racing, circuit sprints, motorkhana and go-to-whoa. The winner will score a trip for two to SEMA and the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational in Las Vegas in 2020.
