Drag Racing fans are in for an absolute feast of 400 Thunder action on TV with nine separate one hour shows scheduled to be screened on SBS Speedweek over the coming weeks. Coverage of the recent East Coast Thunder continues this Sunday, December 16 with all the action from Pro Stock as the factory hot roads turned in another display of ultra-close racing and upsets that were the trade mark of the Sydney Dragway event
The motorcycles take centre stage the following Sunday with the focus on the Top Bike and Pro Bike battles that threw up plenty of surprises. The show also includes highlights of all the 400 Thunder Sportsman Series finals as drivers and riders fought it out to build their Australian Championship tallies.
Coverage of Willowbank Raceway’s New Year’s Thunder will kick off after the holiday break on January 20 with Top Fuel highlights of what looks set to be an epic battle. Lamattina Top Fuel Racing will be fielding two cars for defending Champ, Kelly Bettes and ex-pat Aussie Richie Crampton who’s flying in from the U.S. to take on Phil Read in the Black Mamba and the Rapisarda Autosport International three car team of series leader, Wayne Newby, Damian Harris and popular American Ashley Sanford.
