Santo Rapisarda has again shown massive commitment to Australian drag racing with a plan for his Top Fuel team to compete in Australia on the free weekend between the last two NHRA event of the season in the USA.

With the 2012 Australian Nationals just around the corner, the Titan Cranes team will go in as favourites, having won the event last year with Cory McClenathan driving and also winning the season-ending Fuchs Winternationals in June with Allan Dobson at the wheel.


Reigning Pro Stock champion Michael Ali has had things fall into place just in time to be able to contest the opening round of the ANDRA Drag Racing Series at his home track of Adelaide International Raceway in just over a week’s time.

Ali’s home track debut was looking uncertain up until recent days when the powerplant for his SA Constructions Pontiac GTO arrived back.


ANDRA Top Fuel operation Lamattina Top Fuel Racing (LTFR) has confirmed the team has secured a sponsorship agreement with Elders Insurance, who will be will be joining the twice championship-winners for the 2013 ANDRA season.


Northern Territory Pro Stock Motorcycle sophomore Scott White is preparing for the new season’s opening round at the 2012 Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway.

While Top Fuel and Pro Stock get underway next weekend in Adelaide, November 2-4 will mark the season launch for the Pro Stock Motorcycle brigade, where White hopes to make more of an impact.


Lee Bektash has armed himself to the teeth for an assault on the ANDRA Drag Racing Series in Pro Stock this season, coming into the opening event in Adelaide on October 20 with what he says is his best horsepower yet under the bonnet of the factory-backed Mopar.

Last season Bektash finished with just one round win from five events but also lost three races by less than a tenth of a second. With a bunch of testing done in the off season producing quality results including an unofficial highest ever speed for an Australian Pro Stock car at 196mph (315kph), the Mopar team has positioned itself for a turn around.
