Nitro Racing heads to Portland
Australia’s biggest field of nitro cars is heading to one of the country’s prettiest racetracks with the Aeroflow Outlaw show heading to Fuchs South Coast Raceway near Portland, Victoria for February 1.
With a massive line-up of 11 nitro-burning funny cars, the Portland track will rumble to the tune of some 44,000 horsepower with each car producing approximately 4000 horsepower!
Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car Series Manager, Steve Bettes, was pleased with the development of the event.
“Working with the team at Fuchs South Coast Raceway has been just fantastic, they are a great group and we are pleased to be able to work on this event with them.
“These cars will be like nothing the fans have ever seen before!”
“Nitro racing is unique to drag racing and if you haven’t seen the spectacle of this type of drag racing before – you can’t afford to miss it.”
The racing cars are one thing but a fan favourite from the Sydney event was undoubtedly the Nitro Sheriff wheelstanding funny car. Powered by a supercharged hemi engine, the ‘Sheriff’ completes the entire quarter mile pass with a wheelstand.
Bettes added, “Everyone loves the nitro cars but the kids love the wheelstanding car more than anything, with sparks and flames and the wheels in the air, it certainly is quite a show.”
The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car Show features racing from 1pm and support classes from 11am.
