More exciting news for the Australian Drag Racing community - Top Fuel Funny Cars return to Australian Drag racing.

Top Fuel Funny Cars paints a powerful image with the return of one of the most popular categories around the world. The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals on June 9th to 12th will see the debut of the category. However, race fans will get a glimpse of what’s ahead when a couple of the Top Fuel Funny Cars shake the track at the Gulf Western Oil Super Thunder at Willowbank Raceway on April 9th.

CEO of Willowbank Raceway Peter Beaumont said that “having Top Fuel Funny Cars at the April and June events for Willowbank Raceway is something very special for the race fans as they have been waiting for this day for many months, and so have we. This is truly big news for Willowbank Raceway”

The Aeroflow Performance Products Toyota Camry with Morice McMillin behind the wheel will line up next to the Nitro Freak Chevrolet Monte Carlo piloted by Adam Murahy at the Super Thunder event, providing some earth-shattering excitement for the race fans.

Morice Mcmillin added “We have had the Aeroflow Performance Products Toyota Camry out a few times at Sydney Dragway recently and Graeme, and our awesome crew, are extremely happy with the progress. Quarter mile racing, 500km/h speeds 4 second passes header flames over the roof, if that doesn’t get your blood flowing nothing will.”

Long time Funny Car stalwarts, Graeme and Wendy Cowin, with their Aeroflow Performance Products company, are excited for the Top Fuel Funny Car return to Australian Racetracks.

Graeme and Wendy’s passion is funny cars and we plan to showcase that with the Aeroflow Performance funny car in front of some big crowds at Willowbank Raceway over the next few months, and then at more tracks in the 400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing Series in 2022/2023.”

400 Thunder General Manager Steve Bettes is looking forward to bringing back this popular category for the fans.

“Top Fuel Funny Car is the category that race fans have been screaming out for many years, and we are delighted that 400 Thunder and the Top Fuel Funny Car teams are bringing it back for them,” Mr. Bettes said.

The Australian Drag Racing community has a lot to look forward to in the near future, with the addition of a new track, facility upgrades, new racing categories and plenty of newcomers to the sport.
