JAMBOREE THE PLACE FOR WORLD-STANDARD PERFORMANCES
In just over two weeks Queensland’s premier drag racing facility Willowbank Raceway will play host once again to the annual Brisbane Jamboree – Australia’s premier import car and lifestyle event.
Headlining this year’s 23rd birthday for the popular automotive event will be two world-beaters which will be sure to have an expected 10,000 spectators on the edge of their seats.
Scott Porter and his Nissan Infinity currently hold the accolades of the quickest (6.35s) and fastest (235mph) Nissan in the world, while George Rehayem of the prestigious PAC Performance outfit boasts the world’s quickest (6.47s) and fastest (222mph) rotary in the world.
And that isn’t where the record-holding ends either, with Joe Signorelli also set to impress in his Gas Motorsports Toyota Celica which is Australia’s quickest of its kind (6.275s).
From amazing racing to a full festival of off-track activities, the Brisbane Jamboree at Willowbank Raceway has a wide array of activities in store for motoring enthusiasts.
“The Jamboree’s formula for success is rather unique, and offers something for everyone,” said Jamboree organiser Ray Box.
“Is this just a drag racing event? Absolutely not – it is a two-day celebration of all things high-octane that are guaranteed to get your pulse racing!
“There are the country’s best drag cars, the famous Miss Jamboree competition, a motorcycle stunt show from Stunt legend Matt Mingay, club displays, trader stores, stage shows, a dyno comp and a sound off competition.
“There are also no less than two amazing show and shine events in store – the Just Car Insurance New School Show-n-Shine on Saturday for post-1985 vehicles, and the Shannons Old School Show-n-Shine on Sunday for pre-1985 beasts.
“Then of course there is the on-track action, from the Pro Turbo bracket which represents the most high-tech form of quarter-mile racing in the country, to round three of the popular Factory Xtreme bracket, there will be no shortage of breath-taking quarter-mile performances across the weekend.
“In this respect the sport is evolving in leaps and bounds, every year we think there is no way these cars can go faster and every year they come back and blow us away – I can’t wait to see what these racers have in store for the spectators over September 21 and 22!”
