Burnouts of fun this week­end at out­law funny cars, Spring­mount

Tablelands Advertiser - - SPORT -

TABLE­LANDS rev heads can gear up for round 4 of Spring­mount Race­way’s 2017 Track Cham­pi­onship se­ries while en­joy­ing the rum­ble of 4000 horse­power en­gines, burnouts and drag rac­ing at Spring­mount Race­way this Satur­day Septem­ber 23.

The head­line event this year will be the Are­oflow Out­law Funny Cars which will salute the crowd at 2pm and race at 3pm, 5pm and 7pm.

Spring­mount Race­way man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Evan Yelavich said it will be a great day out for fam­i­lies with dif­fer­ent events through­out the day.

“The funny cars are a slightly dis­torted ver­sion of a car. They are ex­tremely fast and ex­tremely loud. The cars are spec­tac­u­lar with flames shoot­ing out from the ex­haust,” he said.

“We will start on Fri­day night with a test and tune for com­peti­tors at 6pm to 9pm.

“There will be a jump­ing cas­tle for kids with a free en­try and a bar and food avail­able.”

Test­ing will com­mence at 9am on Satur­day with qual­i­fy­ing start­ing off at 11am and rac­ing will be­gin at 1pm.

A sun break will be sched­uled at 5.30pm giv­ing a chance for spec­ta­tors to watch the burn out demon­stra­tions.

“We will have the sun break be­cause of the west­ernly sun which gets in com­peti­tor’s eyes and can be dan­ger­ous,” Mr Yelavich said.

North Queens­land Cow­boys fan’s will have no need to rush off on Satur­day for their sud­den death fi­nal against the Syd­ney Roost­ers at 7.30pm be­cause Spring­mount race­way have hired an LED screen.

“By the time peo­ple get home from the event, they might miss more than half the game, de­pend­ing on where they live,” Mr Yelavich said.

Camp­ing will be avail­able to the pub­lic and en­trants on Fri­day and Satur­day nights.
