Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series

The Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series is a national, points based competition open to all permanent ANDRA license holders for participants in Groups Two, Three and Four. Referred to as sportsman classes.

Posting over $50,000 in end of season prize money, Summit Racing Equipment are keen supporters of sportsman racing.

He broke through for his first-ever ANDRA Christmas Tree at Mildura earlier this season, and since then Melbourne-based Supercharged Outlaws racer Tim Stewart hasn’t looked back.

In the last three events he has raced – starting with Mildura – Stewart has been to the finals every time, securing the event win two out of those three times. What makes this even more impressive is the fact that Stewart’s ‘THE STANG’ ‘66 Fast back Funny Car is new for him and his crew this season.

Now, the 56-year-old Director of Fire Fighting Systems is looking ahead to try and make it four from four finals at this weekend’s South Coast 660 at South Coast Raceway (January 20/21) – round seven of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series.

Pro Stock competitor Chris Soldatos will compete at South Coast Raceway’s South Coast 660 next weekend in close friend Craig Geddes’ Cavalier.

The January 20/21 event marks round seven of the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series.

With Geddes at the wheel, the 2004 Cavalier - a new car for Geddes - took out the Super Stock honours at the last round of the Series: the Rowe Memorial at Calder Park.

Now, Soldatos will take over the driving duties while Geddes looks to run his dragster for the remainder of the season.


Bill Farrugia

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.
