Racer/Crew Chief Aaron Hambridge and sports media personality Lachlan Wills have joined the ANDRA Drag Racing commentary team on SBS Speedweek.
The second leg of the “Central Swing” was a clean sweep for 9 times Champion John Zappia – Top Qualifying and winning the Desert Nationals in Alice Springs, while picking up Low ET, Top Speed and resetting the track 1/8 mile ET and MPH records.
Earlier this week it was with sadness ANDRA learned of the passing of former South Australian Division Director Harry White.
Harry was a loved member of the drag racing community retiring as SA Division Director in 2012 following 22 years in the position.
His involvement in drag racing dates all the way back to the early days of racing at Brooksfield Dragway and later Adelaide International Raceway. But what many people may not know is that just prior to getting behind the wheel, Harry was called up to serve in Vietnam.
Upon his return after serving his country with distinction, Harry played a significant role in the formation and operation of the South Australian Drag Racers Association and spent time with ANDRA as the Executive Director and membership of the National Executive Committee, assisting with the operation of the Australian Drag Racing Promoters Association conferences on numerous occasions.
The Australian National Drag Racing Association will partner with Garmin Australia and their Garmin VIRB series on a new TV and live stream multimedia package for the remainder of the 2016/2017 ANDRA Championship season.
John Zappia has clean-swept the Top Doorslammer category at Alice Spring Inland Dragway’s Desert Nationals this weekend - top qualifying and taking the event victory this afternoon (Sunday 17 July) whilst also resetting the track speed (193.97mph) and elapsed time (3.966s) eighth-mile distance records in the process.
