There will be a three way battle in Top Comp for the final event of the season as points leader Wayne Keys tries to fend off Stuart Moresby and Adam Marchant for the State title.
The Maximum Thrust Grand Final marks the conclusion of the 2015/16 points chase and the last opportunity for drivers to make an impact on the championship tussle.
Keys has had a dramatic season to this point with two wild braking area incidents, one which required rebuilding much of the car and another one at Nitro Max where he was able to escape with just a lot of sand to clean out.
“We are looking forward to the last event, we are ahead by 10 points and aiming for a win and a championship,” he said.
“It will be a quick turnaround after that meeting as we have entered to race in Adelaide.”
Following the two adrenaline inducing moments at the fast end of the track, the team has looked at the arrangements for releasing the parachutes, believing it may have been the reason why the system has failed to successfully deploy on two occasions.
“We are currently redesigning the leavers for the parachutes at is it seems that that arrangement and the cables may have been a problem for the last event,” Keys said. “Cables and chutes were replaced after the December 28 crash, so we are not sure how it became a problem this time as it was not a problem when we returned straight after the crash.”
For spectators the drama of Top Comp will make a fantastic accompaniment to the Jet Drag Stars who return with four fire breathing dragsters ready to fire off down the quarter mile at over 400kmh.
Perth’s own father and daughter team Rhiannon and Craig Allison, alongside the USA’s Chuck Haynes and South Africa’s Pieter De Wit will excite and ignite with three rounds of racing. And the great news is that kids 15 and under get free spectator entry!
