400 Thunder Management is delighted to announce the expansion of 2021/2022 400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing Series Sportsman Calendar to two more race tracks this coming season.

The series will expand into Victoria, by including Heathcote Park Raceway, and we are looking forward to the track improvements and safety developments that Lance Warren has scheduled over the next few months. We are also pleased to announce that we have been working with Glenn Cunningham at Palmyra Dragway and we will be taking 400 Sportsman Racing to Palmyra Dragway this season for the “Palmyra Thunder 1000” over the 1000ft distance on October 29/30.

The 400 Thunder Championship now includes multiple tracks across the entire east coast of Australia and will now deliver on the requests of many racers over recent years. We thank you for your patience.

400 Thunder management also attempted, over the last several months, to secure the (2) traditional 400 Thunder Championship dates (November & May) at Sydney Dragway for the 2021/2022 400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing Series, but the dates are suddenly unavailable and unfortunately only one suitable date has been made available by  Sydney Dragway Management for the entire 2021/2022 Calendar. (Please Note: Other totally impractical dates were also offered and rejected, by 400 Thunder)

Due to the above calendar scenario and to ensure NSW Sportsman competitors are provided with an equal opportunity to racers from other states, for the Sydney Round on Feb 4/5, there will be a bonus points structure implemented at the round to ensure that NSW based competitors are not disadvantaged by only having one home round.  This will only occur in the 2021/2022 Championship season, as Sydney Dragway have made (2) dates available for the 400 Thunder Championship series in the 22/23 season.

Furthermore, in an exciting development for all sportsman racers, all sportsman categories will be run at all of the Championship dates & venue’s, except for Palmyra Dragway where there will be no Supercomp or Performance Bike Class offered this season, PLUS all events have now expanded to two days to accommodate the expanded categories at each event and expected growth in the entry numbers.

Full details of bonus points rounds and Sportsman points caps for the 2021/22 season will be finalised and released in the coming days, keep an eye on www.400thunder.com.au for updated details shortly. 

All 400 Thunder PRO Categories will be contacted directly over the coming days in reference to their calendar and rounds.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the tracks this coming season, in what will be one of the best 400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing seasons ever.
