V8 Supercar fans were recently able to get a taste of even more horsepower at the Telstra 500 in Sydney.

As part of a drag racing exhibition, many teams showed up to take the sport to a largely new and inquisitive audience.

Many families and kids wanted photos beside and in the cars and bikes and the gaps in between races meant there was a constant flow of people coming through the display area when there was no action on track.
