ANDRA Grand Final Adelaide International Raceway

Post by 70cudatj on Mon 11 Apr 2016, 4:51 pm

With the looming change of an SA drag racing venue to the Tailem Bend motor sport park the possibly last drag event was held at A.I.R. over the weekend, the ANDRA Grand Final featuring all classes from Super Street right up to Top Fuel Dragsters.
A bunch of us boys went out for a lookie and to inhale some top fuel fumes and although racing was frequently delayed by Xmas tree issues and oil downs, it was a great day with the weather gods being kind and the people voted with there feet ... it was packed to eyeballs, great to see Drag racing is still alive!
During the breaks in the racing we went wandering around looking at the cars and taking pics, thought some of you guys might want to see some of it so here we go ......

Street stuff







This bugger popped a full wheelstand for about 20 meters!!


More serious stuff..





It's a Dodge mate ...










Serious stuff!



Old school ..




This was with it's own transporter ... cool combo



Other stuff ...




This is a genuine survivor, very good nick ...


and this poor old girl was left out in the car park getting trashed with dust!



Cheers TJ

Man... seeing all that beautiful machinery, 'specially the early (as we called 'em back in the 70's)  'Falcoons', 'Munroes', 'T'runners &  of course those 'Valley Ants', brings a tear to the eye.  Crying or Very sad
These cars had their own unique style, charisma, character & were all in a class of their own. Jeez I miss those days!

Thanks heaps "70cudatj" for sharing these pics with us.... Awesome mate! twothumbsup
