Adelaide DragRace Promotions and Peter Pislaidis are set to take on the role as Promoter at Adelaide International Raceway.
The news is a welcome relief for South Australian fans and racers eager to see a full calendar of racing at AIR. This afternoon Peter Pisalidis issued the following statement:
“After some time in discussions and planning, Adelaide International Raceway is all go for Drag Racing with an ongoing racing calendar that is reinstating regular Drag Racing events at AIR, starting September 25th. Making sure we have covered all bases has been important but we are now ready to welcome drag racing back on a regular ongoing basis.
From my perspective it was never about making the venue able to run for a ‘one off’ event, but be in a position to run with a regular calendar. I am sure that we will bring confidence back to the South Australian drag racing community and all of the fans. It is important we provide on-going and regular drag racing events at AIR to support the racers, the fans and grow our sport in South Australia as well as Nationally.
Setting a calendar has been a challenge, as many events have already been scheduled around the country, but we have a variety of events scheduled for the SA drag racing community to enjoy this season from Street Meets, TnT’s, Grudge Racing to the Grand Finals in April.
Yes the December 3rd-4th Summer Nationals ANDRA Championship round is on so get ready Adelaide.
We will be releasing more information and the full calendar over the next few days, and all we ask for is for the South Australian drag racing community all supports us in re-establishing Drag Racing at AIR – thanks to everyone for your patience!”
More information as it comes to hand over the coming days.
