ENTRANTS GET GREEN LIGHT FOR BRISBANE JAMBOREE, 2013
Sports Compact Drag Racing in Australia is set to roar to life at Queensland Jamboree on September 21 and 22, 2013 for a weekend of adrenaline-charged racing that promoter Ray Box is heralding as the wildest show Willowbank Raceway has seen yet!
“The Jamboree event has a reputation for bringing out the country’s best drag racers, be it at the Sydney event at Sydney Dragway or the Queensland event at Willowbank, but with Queensland being the home of the event it’s always a lot bigger – we’ve been running it at Willowbank for 23 years now, so we’ve had over two decades to get the formula right!”
The event’s formula for success is rather unique, and offers something for everyone – there’s the country’s best drag cars, the hotly-contested Factory Xtreme class which is the most high-tech form of quarter mile racing in the country, the massive NEW and OLD School show-n-shine, the famous Miss Jamboree comp’, the dyno display, car audio comp, traders, Freestyle MotoX, stunt bikes and more.
Is it just a drag racing event? Absolutely not; it’s a two-day celebration of all things high octane that will get your pulse racing!
“We’re talking in excess of 10,000 people in the stands at the Queensland event,” explains Ray Box of the way the event packs out the stands, and it’s a crowd that in 2013 will experience firsthand some of the latest technology in drag racing, meaning the best, fastest and most competitive racing the country has seen to date.
“The sport is evolving in leaps and bounds,” Ray goes on to say. “Every year we think ‘there’s no way these cars can get any faster’, but every year they come back and blow us away. At any stage over the weekend you’ll be looking at a record-holding race car, whether that’s the fastest in their class or the fastest in the nation or in the instance of the PAC Racing team, a world-record holding car. Not many events play to an international stage like Jamboree; it definitely shines a light on drag racing and the sports compact scene in Australia.”
