In just two weeks, Australia’s biggest drag racing event, the Fuchs Winternationals, will kick off at Queensland’s Willowbank Raceway for four days of world class motorsport.
Maurice Allen has added Fuchs Lubricants to his sponsorship portfolio, with the German oil manufacturer joining Milwaukee Tools as the currently second-ranked, Victorian-based team prepare for their sponsor's title race - the Fuchs Winternationals.
The Fuchs Winternationals is an event where the best drag racers in the nation meet and it is the same attraction that brings new competitors into categories to prove themselves in Australian drag racing's most highlighted spectacle.
Willowbank Raceway’s Fuchs Winternationals will host a world first when Rob Tucker, Shane Tucker and Kirsten Tucker-Cannuli all compete in the one professional drag racing bracket - Pro Stock - next month (June 7-10).
While families racing together in motorsport is fairly commonplace, when Rob Tucker and his children Shane and Kirsten (pictured above) suit up it is believed to be the first time a father, son and daughter have competed at the same time at the same event in the same professional-level class in the world.
Reigning Super Gas champion Simon Isherwood had one problem with his national title, it came without a national event win. But that all changed at the recent Nitro Champs at Sydney Dragway where he scored big with a finals win against Roy Romeo.
