Pro Radial Powerhouse
As it is in North America, small-tire/fast door-slammer racing has become a popular attraction in Australia, and Craig Hewitt’s supercharged Hewitt Racing Holden
Monaro is one of the best. Hewitt, who is based out of Sydney, New South Wales, has been competing with this race car for three seasons, which features a 521ci engine (rated at 2,800 hp) built and prepared by Sam Fenech (Westend Performance). That purpose-built mill includes Australian designed and manufactured Noonan Heads and a 14-71 Hi Helix Kobelco roots blower. The engine program is overseen and tuned by Kon Michalou dakis (WAS Wollongong
Automotive Services). Craig’s car is a converted factory production all-steel-bodied car (no carbon fiber). Hewitt Racing is one of the most dominant on the continent in their category—winning three Pro Street Blown Tire titles within the Outlaw Australian Pro Street Association. Sponsorship comes from Might Mite, 333’s Condiments, Pro Fab, CBH Steel Moulds, Pro Trans, Sefton Smash Repairs, Westend Performance, and WAS. Craig’s crew includes his wife, Kim; kids Maddison, Chloe, and Bailey; and close friends Steve Francis, David and Adam Lennox, John Holroyd-Doveton, and Shane Canarvo.
