We check out all the hot six pot action from Warwick Dragway's annual Six Banger Nats

01 Six Bangers Chez Jpg

IT has been a monster few weeks for Drag Racing down under, but we couldn't miss one of the best little events in the country - Warwick Dragway's Six Banger Nats.

04 Six Bangers Chez Jpg

Founded by the late Mark Stewart and his wife Lyn, Mark's passion for hot sixes runs all through the event, with his son Norm and a dedicated crew of mates working hard each year to bring Mark's famed PANIC altered out to thrill the fans. Norm took out the Best Wheelstand award, proving he is a real chip off the old block!
