The 2018/2019 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series has gotten off to a great start at Darwin’s Hidden Valley Drag Strip this evening, with another full day of Nitro Up North racing action still to come.

Perfect weather and an enthusiastic crowd greeted the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series competitors for Friday’s qualifying, with Jake Berias (Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster), Leith Darrach (Modified Bike), Gavin Pocock (Super Street), Ashley Smith (Super Sedan), Chris Farrell (Modified), Adam Murrihy (Supercharged Outlaws) and Darren Saliba (Top Sportsman) going on to set the fastest qualifying times for their respective brackets. 

In recognition of their Top Qualifying efforts, each of these racers will tomorrow be presented with a Top Qualifiers Medallion thanks to TheTileCo-TheShowerPeople as well as a 25 percent off RRP voucher for any KC Tools outlet, and a Summit Racing Equipment pack. To the delight of the spectators, NT locals were well represented in taking the qualifying honours, with Pocock, Darrach, Smith and Murrihy all calling the Territory home.

Six race cars and twenty drag racing enthusiasts will arrive in Darwin today for this weekend’s Nitro Up North event (July 13/14) at the Hidden Valley Drag Strip as part of a month-long road trip which started in Tamworth earlier this month.

David Hutchen heads up the group of Tamworth Drag Racing Club members and associates who are undertaking their third bi-annual drag racing road trip this year, which will also include next weekend’s Desert Nationals at Alice Springs Inland Dragway (July 21/22).

After bringing home a pair of trophies from last year’s ‘northern swing’, South Australian Sergio Bonetti is hoping for more success at the 2018 instalments of the Nitro Up North and Desert Nationals events.

Nitro Up North will be held at the Hidden Valley Drag Strip this weekend (July 13/14), ahead of Alice Springs Inland Dragway’s Desert Nationals (July 21/22). The events mark rounds one and two of the 2018/2019 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series respectively.

Bonetti certainly has form ‘up north’ after coming home as the runner-up in the Modified bracket at Nitro Up North in 2017 before going on to take the win at the Desert Nationals on his 63rd birthday.
