An abundance of young race fans have enjoyed a chance to get up close and personal with their outlaw nitro funny car driving heroes at the Hyperdome shopping centre on Saturday, ahead of next weekend’s Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car show at Willowbank Raceway.

With children aged 13 and under gaining free admission to Saturday’s event (12 September) and discounted adult entry passes on sale during today’s display, plenty of families took full advantage of the chance today to chat to the drivers and get the inside scoop ahead of their visit to the Ipswich facility. 

Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car drivers Greg Leahy, Jake Donnelly, Dan Donnelly, Paul Messineo, Justin Walshe and Chelsea Leahy were joined by Factory Xtreme racer Collin Willshire at the Hyperdome for the meet and greet. 

Presented by Donnelly Blasting Services, Saturday’s AONFC event will bring the largest ever field of outlaw nitro cars – more than 60,000 horsepower worth – to the Willowbank Raceway quarter-mile in a 12 September extravaganza.

Spectator entry is just $30.00 for adults ($25.00 for pension card holders and students with ID cards), and as always children aged 13 and under are admitted free of charge. Attendees of the annual Powercruise event (being held next door at Queensland Raceway on the same day) will gain entry at concession prices upon presentation of a promotional entry flyer that will be available at Powercruise during the day. 

The action kicks off with a ‘salute’ to the crowd at 4.00pm and runs through to approximately 9.00pm, with the outlaw nitro funny cars to be joined by Pro Mod, Factory Xtreme and Kenda Tires Drag Radial racers for a non-stop show. For more information, please click here.
