Adelaide has been confirmed as an Easter addition to the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car tour, with the 4000hp nitro-powered beasts to race over the 1000-foot distance for the first time as a part of the full show.
Series Manager Steve Bettes said he was excited for the nitro tour to be heading to Adelaide International Raceway for Easter.
“The track in Adelaide is flat and fast. Our racers and their crews can’t wait to get the race cars on the South Australian drag strip for this event,” Bettes said.
“Our Easter date has been very successful and the Easter weekend will continue to be a part of our event schedule, it’s great for both fans and racers.
“Adelaide is new and exciting for our series and we can’t wait to put on the best drag racing show South Australia has ever seen!”
The event will be run in partnership with promoter Rino D’Alfonso, the man credited with restarting drag racing in South Australia after the sport’s 10-year hiatus at the Port Wakefield venue.
“I’m pumped to add the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars to our event roster,” D’Alfonso explained.
“When the guys approached me about running the cars in Adelaide over Easter, it was an easy decision. Adelaide is a funny car town with plenty of history and I know this event will attract a huge crowd!
“The nitro cars throwing their flames, the wheelstanding funny cars racing the entire track on their back wheels, with fire belching from their supercharged engines, it’s something you have to see!
“Adelaide’s Easter weekend sees plenty of horsepower at Oakbank, but this is horsepower on a whole new level – and the kids will love it!”
A full entry list and the event details will be released in the coming days.
