A change in licensing and vehicle equipment regulations will allow racers of high performance, off street vehicles to continue to participate in the safety of Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) sanctioned off street events.

ANDRA has recognised the safety standards of modern cars have increased and past limitations have been a barrier for entry to the sport and would like to encourage participants to continue to race their vehicles in a safe environment.


A new independent director has been appointed to the board of the Australian National Drag Racing Association.

Greg Griffith is the CEO of the Dairy Farmer Milk Co-operative and highly skilled in strategic design and implementation, negotiation, marketing and brand development, new market identification and entry, team development and team leadership, new business development and business networking.

Mr Griffith also has previous experience as general manager of sales and marketing for the Melbourne Football Club.

ANDRA CEO Greg Humphreys said the addition of Mr Griffith to the board provided more valuable skills for drag racing.

“Dairy farming and drag racing may seem entirely different fields but the business acumen is what we are after here,” Mr Humphreys said. “The experience of Mr Griffith in a large, member-based organisation and in a football club will serve our own sport very well.”

The third round of the Southern Super Gas Series has been confirmed for Ballarat on Sunday, March 4, 2012.

Series spokesman Michael Bibby said with Ballarat Drag Racers Club coming on board with support for the series it completed the calendar for the 2011/12 season. 

The second round of the Southern Super Gas Series is at Portland’s Fuchs South Coast Raceway at the Doorslammer Slamfest on February 3 and 4, with the final at the Nitro Champs in Sydney in March.

“When we started this series one of the things we set out to do was to not only provide additional racing opportunities for Super Gas competitors, but also to vary the formats to challenge the racers," Mr Bibby said.

"This continues with the Portland February event being a traditional elimination event with the possibility of first round buybacks while Ballarat will be a round robin event. Combine this with our unique points system of average qualifying ETs then this series does provide something different.”

V8 Supercar fans were recently able to get a taste of even more horsepower at the Telstra 500 in Sydney.

As part of a drag racing exhibition, many teams showed up to take the sport to a largely new and inquisitive audience.

There was a lot of interest in the "fire ups" and the nitro cars certainly grabbed a lot of attention. There was even a parade lap around the circuit that had spectators running from everywhere to see what all the commotion was about on the track.

Many families and kids wanted photos beside and in the cars and bikes and the gaps in between races meant there was a constant flow of people coming through the display area when there was no action on track.
