Has anybody seen a copy of the 2019/2020 400 thunder calendar? This is the first year i've been to the winternationals and not seen next years dates painted on the walls. Its not like they had other sponsors filling the space, this years dates where still showing. Has there again been talk of moving the date for this event?
Glad to see someone still posts in here, I can't freakin wait to get there. This will be my 25th year of making the 1,000km trek to the winters and i'm still as keen as i ever was. Slammer and Alky look outstanding, fuelers a little down on numbers sadly and i would love to see Jay Upton's bike make the trip across the country but i understand that money issues will always inhibit numbers. Saturday 2nd qualy run will see Zap and Mouhayet into the 5.5's with McLean and Benny into the low 5.6's.
Just spoke to foxtel this morning, they were quite helpful and mentioned that there is quite a lot of talk on the forums about getting the coverage back on. Guy i spoke to on the phone lodged a request on my behalf to the programming team to look at putting the shows on. The more people that do this the more chance we have of getting the coverage back on, call 131999, say 'programming' until you get a human and then let them know you want NHRA.
I'm in the same boat, i've had austar/foxtel for 20 years due to their coverage of NHRA. Given the amount of repeat shows and absolute rubbish they have on, surely they can find the programming time to continue the coverage.
Phil, John, Angelo and team will be sorely missed by this sport. Drag racing in this country will be poorer for their absence. However i can fully understand the need to prioritise family over sport, especially considering the accident at Willowbank. Thank you LTFR for the entertainment you have provided over the last 10 years, i have enjoyed watching you all and i wish you all the very best in the future. Your commitment to this sport has been unwavering over your careers and i hope that in time we will see you return to the sport in some way, shape or form (i can easily imagine a 2 car LTFR doorslammer team).
On another note - attention Fuchs, how about sending some of that sponsorship money Darren Morgans way?
Can't wait to get there, been counting down the days since last year. After the nitro champ's were cancelled i need a nitro fix bad. Great to see this event being so well supported by the racers, hope to see every one of em go down the track at least once. Anybody know why victor is a no-show?
Couldn't agree more Kerry, although i want 8pm to hurry up. Thats when myself and 3 mates are leaving Central NSW to drive up there. In the meantime i'll just have to get by with the excellent live coverage on DNA.
I notice that Darren hasn't nominated for the x champs either. Its hard to believe that anything other than money problems would keep this guy from racing. It pains me that a multiple champion like Darren is unable to find enough sponsorship to compete for a full season. Hope to see him at the winters with a nice new paint scheme covered in corporate names.
Oh thats some funny sht, i haven't laughed that hard in awhile. I know some farmers who would love to buy a few of these so that they could channel the storms towards their own land, is there any discount for buying in bulk?
