Australian Nostalgia Racers Vic INC. is a drag racing club where a diversity of racers, fans and supporters come together to share their passion for Nostalgia Drag Racing vehicles Australia wide.  Keeping the passion going for pre 1980 chrome bumper cars fitted with carburettor and distributor engines, V8, 6cyl, and 4cyl. Naturally aspirated, Nitrous Oxide, roots superchargers and mechanical injection, this is old school drag racing. 


Dust off your old drag car or build another one and come to one of our Nostalgia Drag Racing events.  Do a skid, put the front wheels in the air and send it.  Its all about maximum fun, tell old stories, tell new stories, make new memories, see old friends and make new ones.

No delay boxes, No turbos or electronic fuel injection [EFI] because laptop tuning and turbos' are not old skool and there is plenty of drag racing opportunities for those cars anyway.  So if you want to race with us and have some fun, dump the tech, you will find the Nostalgia bracket rules here and are fairly easy to comply with.

About Us

Australian Nostalgia Racers - It's all about the racing

Australian Nostalgia Racers Vic INC. was founded back in the 1990s for old drag racers to come together and share their experiences and passion for the old skool tuning techniques and find a place for the older drag cars to compete like they once did long ago.  Just because the car is not competitive at a modern event doesn't mean it shouldn't run and that's where we fit in.  It's all about the racing, the fans, the racers and the tracks coming together under a set of rules that have evolved over time with feedback from racers and spectators as to what a Nostalgia Drag Racing Event should look like, feel like and sound like. But not only that, the drag cars still have to be compliant and pass current tech inspections, safety has improved over time and that's a good thing.  The cars may look period, run old skool parts, wheels etc. but they still pass current tech and that is key.

Heathcote Nostalgia Nationals drag racing 2022

The Heathcote Nostalgia Nationals was put on by the Australian Nostalgia Racers club. Held at the Heathcote Park Raceway in Victoria, the drag racing event was set up as a Chicago Shootout. Chicago Shootout Rules: Race Seeding: All Brackets will be seeded on their reaction time in THE first qualifying session. If you run quicker than your respective cut off you will be placed at the bottom of the field regardless of your reaction time also if you do not front for the first qualifying session you will be placed at the rear of the field. Finals: At the completion of round three, a count back will be made to establish the finalists. The criteria will be as follows: A. Two racers with three round wins each – automatic entry into the final regardless of red lights or breakouts. B. More than two races with three wins each –The count back is then based on closest elapsed time to nominated dial-in (no quicker than their dial-in) in any round of racing won. Reaction times play no part in the count back. The two racers who are closest to their respective dial-ins are then eligible for the final. If by chance the count back is a dead heat, it will then be based on the next closest to dial in any round win. With five categories competing, the variety of cars racing was impressive. Vintage Gas for the gassers US Muscle for the American muscle cars Aus Muscle for the Australian muscle cars Middle Eliminator for the smaller powered rails and Altereds. Hot Rod for the pre 49 cars The racing ran over two days with the drivers testing their mettle against each other while turning it on for the spectators. Sit back and enjoy this track side view of the racing. 00:00:00 Introduction 00:29:54 First qualifying 00:44:00 second qualifying 00:55:56 Finals
