DRAG RACING
We will have 10 different categories to make for some competitive and great racing. Racing starts at 1pm so that crowds can enjoy the activities in the pits in the morning and racing in the afternoon.
Drag racing competitors will park either in workshop allocated space in the pits, or, in display areas alongside display cars. Once racing starts an area will be allocated as pits for people to use.
Each category will be allocated a staging lane and the track will operate as a test and tune. This means you will get plenty of track time. The winners or each category are determined simply by your best ET of the day.
Please note that all drag racing is done under ANDRA or IHRA regulations and we have a maximum limit of 150 competitors. Entries are on a first come, first served basis.
More information on safety gear and what to expect when you go drag racing can be found here: http://www.sydneydragway.com.au/faqs/

DRIVING EVENTS
As well as display and drag racing, we are also organising a tarmac rally style khanacross for some fun driving events at the GT-R Festival.
Anyone can enter. You simply pay an extra fee at the sign-on area to the driving arena.
There are four 90-minute sessions with room for 15 cars in each. The cost is $50 per session and you can book as many as you like and simply sign on at the accreditation tent by the event start line.
Being a Khanacross, a helmet is required for both driver and passenger and you must have a fire extinguisher bolted into the car. If you do not have these items we can assist you on the day. Your car must also pass a basic safety inspection.
It is a non speed event and if you don’t have a CAMS license you can buy one on the day for $25 when you sign on..
