UPDATE: Springmount Raceway and Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car management have regrettably decided to postpone the event that was due to be held on Saturday, August 5.
Following consultation with the local experts and the examination of forecast weather, it was determined that the likelihood of bad weather and the expectant effect of persistent rain would make it impossible to run the event satisfactorily.
Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars and Springmount Raceway want to put on the very best show possible for the north Queensland crowd.
Both Springmount Raceway and the Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Car organisers have confirmed the alternative date, which will be September 23.
Unfortunately, these circumstances are beyond the promoter’s control but everyone involved intend to make the September event even more spectacular!
The Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny Cars are coming to Springmount Raceway on August 5! Come and see these ground-pounding 4,000 horsepower machines as they hit speeds of up to 400km/h!
This event also forms Round 3 of Springmount Raceway’s 2017 Track Championship Series so will include a great line-up of supporting categories, plus there will be pro burnout demonstrations during the sun break which will be broadcast on a big LED screen so you won’t miss a thing from your spot on the hill!
There will also be a Test & Tune on Friday night which will be the first ever racing at Springmount Raceway under permanent lighting, so come along and make a weekend of it!
Food, bar and camping available, and a free jumping castle for the kids!
