Chevy High Performance - - Straight Line Spotlight -

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.
