O’Connor to take top qualifying form to Westernationals
West Australian drag racing star Murray O’Connor is looking to take his team’s good form in ANDRA Top Doorslammer to the biggest drag racing event on the Perth Calendar – the Westernationals.
After topping the qualifying at the recent Pro Showdown held at the Perth Motorplex, Murray and the team are confident that once again the carbon-bodied XM Falcon is good enough to go all the way.
Qualifying at the first event of the ANDRA Top Doorslammer Championship for 2014, the second session saw the O’Connor team get the XM Falcon down the quarter for a stellar 5.90 pass and straight into the number one position.
“We feel like we had more up out sleeve but the weather threw us a curveball and with just missed the sweet spot,” explained O’Connor.
“Even then we were at the top of the time sheets so we couldn’t really complain.
The field also contained some of the most competitive cars in the country, with a field of 19 vehicles all battling it out for just eight spots.
“Now we have to repeat it and go a little better,” laughed O’Connor.
“This is the event we all want to win and no one wants it more than I do.”
