The Fast Series is proving to be popular among drag racing competitors with the relaxed atmosphere but constant action providing the best of both worlds.
The third round of the series, held on Saturday at Perth Motorplex, attracted over one hundred entries with massive variety. Everything from Junior Dragsters, to turbocharged wheelstanding Mazdas, to a supercharged V8 Jaguar were on track and all enjoying the warm night conditions, especially once that pesky wind subsided!
Here’s some of the action that went down thanks to photographer Ryan Annear who popped in for a couple of hours early in the day…
Brett Glover had some 10.5 inch wide tyres that the team was testing. Car owner Peter Glover said that the 10.5 tyres keep their shape better which will hopefully provide the high horsepower Mazda with better stability down track.
The Chich Mazda needed a push back but this photo is a great opportunity to show off the new readout boards that were fully functional on the night. How easy to see are those numbers in broad daylight?
How about one the kids can get into? Connor Wood was one of the many Junior Dragster drivers on the property. Connor is the son of Top Fuel Motorcycle racer Tony Wood, so we wonder if some nitro could be in this young lad’s future…
Here’s some onboard video from Norbert Claite who was testing out his now supercharged Jaguar. Despite the parachutes failing to deploy on this 180mph+ pass, Claite was able to bring the sleek car to a stop.
We’ll leave you with a bunch of pics thanks to Ryan Annear! The next Fast Series event is on Friday, March 13, 2015.
