Bill Farrugia is looking to take the performance that saw him top qualify at the last round of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series and convert that into an event victory at the upcoming South Coast 660 event.

Round seven of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series, the South Coast 660 will be held at Portland’s South Coast Raceway across January 20 and 21, 2018.


The following has been released by Calder Park Drag Racing today, the 18th of December 2017.

As a few of you may have already heard, The Australian Nationals will not go ahead as initially planned on the 26th and 27th of January, 2018.

Unfortunately, with the late withdrawal of the 400Thunder Group One categories and with only six weeks to go, it is not practical to run the event as planned.  We do hope that you understand this has been an extremely difficult decision and one that was not taken lightly. This event was viewed as a major step forward that we hoped would bring the sport together again nationally, but it is unfortunately being postponed.

While this event will not go ahead, we can confirm we are working in conjunction with Calder Park management on a plan to resurface the asphalt portion of the drag strip together with some other upgrades. Planning and negotiations are well advanced and we are sure you will all be pleased with the end result (which we will keep you posted on).

A return to Championship racing at the venue is expected very soon following the abovementioned upgrades.

Competition eliminator racer Shane Baxter broke through to reset the national speed CC/AA record over the 1000ft at the weekend’s Rowe Memorial at Calder Park Raceway.

While his record-breaking speed did not translate to event winning power on the day, Baxter says there is more to come from his operation as they look towards racing at Portland (January 20-21) for round seven of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series.
