The ANDRA championship rounds of Top Doorslammer, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle for Calder Park in February have been cancelled, due to the recent change in ownership of the history-steeped Melbourne venue.
The short time frame after the recent change in ownership of Calder Park caused a logistical challenge that would have been difficult to overcome in the time available.
ANDRA chief executive Malcolm Bulley said it is only a postponement of the return of ANDRA championship drag racing to Melbourne.
“All of our members and in particular our Victorian base should be aware that we are continuing to work with Calder Park and the relationship remains healthy,” he said.
“ANDRA together with Calder Park management are working towards a strong return on 19-20 October 2013 for the Top Fuel, Top Bike and Pro Stock Motorcycle rounds scheduled.”
Although this is a short term set back, the foundations are being laid to ensure a long term return to the venue and the new management has been very supportive of ANDRA championship drag racing.
ANDRA championship drag racing recently made a return to regional Victoria with a highly successful round of the Aeroflow Sportsman Drag Racing Championship at Fuchs South Coast Raceway in Portland.
