The 400 Thunder Sportsman Commission was established to give Sportsman racers a voice in what goes on within the 400 Thunder Sportsman Series. At present there are state chapters in NSW and QLD, reporting to a 400 Thunder National Sportsman Commission. The state chapters are comprised of local racers, stewards and track staff all working towards making racing more prosperous within their local areas and the series as a whole. The National Sportsman Commission works with the state chapters, and IHRA Australia, to be the conduit to Australian Professional Drag Racing (APDR) as the administrators of the 400 Thunder Series.

At present, the QLD and NSW commission positions held are occupied by:

NSW Sportsman Chairperson:  Daniel Kuiper – email:

NSW Sportsman Commission Members: Margaret Hartill-Law, Brendon Luke, Joe Princi, John Somoracz, Mike Watkins, Ron Welch

QLD Sportsman Chairperson:  Daniel Morris – email:

QLD Sportsman Commission Members: Bruce Agate, Shayne Holmes, Barry Lowday, Lawrie Moore, Ron Newton, Allan Ray
