This February (2014), marks the 10th Anniversary of the Official Opening of Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID), known today as Sydney Dragway.
It was a monumental occasion following a hard fought battle to convince the Government that NSW needed a standalone quarter-mile drag racing facility.
WSID provided the link that had been missing in ANDRA Championship Drag Racing for many years, helping the sport grow and also introduce the sport once more to a new generation of motorsport fans.
The Grand Opening event was the Summernationals held on February 6-8, 2004. It was an extremely hot day and following the ribbon cutting and the speeches, fans witnessed the full spectrum of ANDRA Championship Drag Racing action from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster.
In marking this occasion, MotorsportsTV will Live Stream a special 2 Hour show this Thursday at 7pm. The show will feature the Kings of the Sport – Top Fuel and the wild boys of drag racing -Top Doorslammer.
Some of the names included Mike Dunn from the United States, Steve “Pommie” Read, Cowin, Sainty, Jim Read, Victor and Benny Bray, Robin Judd, Maurice Fabietti and lots more.
Remember to tune in this Thursday at 7pm on the FREE Motorsports TV app (Apple and Google) and www.motorsportstv.com.au on the web.
And share the news with your friends.
