The Australian Nationals are the “pinnacle” of Aussie Drag Racing!
Following the runaway success of the 2016 Australian Nationals at Calder Park Raceway, this iconic event is back in Melbourne for two days of Nitro, Top Alcohol, Top Doorslammer, Top Fuel Motorcycle, Pro Stock, Pro Stock Motorcycle and the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series.
 
Do not kid yourselves people, this is The Most Powerful Motorsport on the Planet and the most awesome to witness in person with 10,000 hp Nitro Top Fuel,  4000hp Top Alcohol and Doorslammers all shacking the ground and running blistering speeds in front of a Melbourne crowd (the most exciting thing to see). This is the only Melbourne venue where you have the opportunity to witness all of this action on Saturday (qualifying) and eliminations on Sunday. Both days are action packed, and all spectator general admission includes access to the pits and getting face to face with the hero's of Drag Racing.
 
Entries strictly close on Monday 16th January. Entries past Monday 5pm WILL incur a $250 late fee no matter what your name is.
 
 
See you all at the 2016 Australian Nationals !!!

Spectator gates are open from 9am Saturday and 9am Sunday morning.
Saturday is Qualifying day, which means all teams are trying their best to put themselves in an ideal qualifying position. The action is always tough and spectacular to watch as everyone wants that No1 spot and possibly get a first round bye run. Saturday should be wrapping up around 8:30-9pm and there's nothing like watching the drags at dusk – so do plan on hanging around.
 
Sunday is the business day and “ITS ALL SERIOUS BUSINESS” for everyone.  Drag racing is very much like the tennis, ie its a one on one, elimination knock out format. You loose and you're going home!!!
Now for the top Fuel teams we have made sure they do all race in front of the crowd on every run to give the Melbourne fans some NITRO ACTION! the days official launch is at 12pm midday, although racing will be starting more closer to 10am, so dont miss out on any of the action.
