H-D Drags Rd 1 2017

Neal, Flame and Viv at H-D Drags Rd 1 2017

H-D Drags Rd 1 2017 were held recently at Willowbank Raceway. It was a hot humid afternoon on March 4th. Only 22 racers nominated, understandable with the weather and forecast of rain. It was great to have Viv and Flame from Flame Racing, the current Gladstone Track “Twin Class” Champion down from Central QLD to race with us. First round of Qualifying got under way and everyone had a pass. Times and speeds were down a little with the heat and poor air quality for making power. Half way through second round of Qualifying and light rain started. Racing stopped immediately and Track Staff brought out the tractor and tried to drag the surface dry. Sadly more rain fell and the decision was made to cancel H-D Drags Rd 1 2017. The track remained open hoping for fine weather to come over so they could hold Round 2 of their Street Series. Unfortunately this was also rained out.

The next Round of the H-D Drags Series 2017, is planned for April 29th. We hope better weather will be upon us for this one. Thanks to all who came out to race plus Woggie and Lola for organizing this Round. Also thanks go to Morgan and Wacker H-D for sponsoring the series again for 2017.
