Australian Production Vehicles pre 1980 chrome bumper sedans, wagons, coupes, utes. Aussie Fords, Holdens, Valiants, english body styles and early jap cars that have been a traditional drag car go to body style in the past. The aim of this bracket to have the look and feel of early Australian drag racing events even though some may choose to run fairly modern drive trains.
No delay boxes, No Electronic Fuel Injection and No Turbos. Two step, trans brakes and line lockers OK.
Can be late model engine but must be a carbie and distributor or carburettor and a stand alone electronic ignition, like for example an MSD or similar.
V8, 6 or 4 cyl engines, naturally aspirated, Nitrous, mechanical injection, methanol, roots style super chargers and blow through carb centrifugal superchargers are all ok. If you are exceptionally quick you may be placed into the Top Eliminator bracket at the discretion of the track on the day.
We encourage a more period look, after all it is Nostalgia Drag Racing so preference will be given to period looking cars with period wheels etc. See if you can out do your mates with more period correct stuff on your car.
In Australia we were a pretty unique look in the early days because of our local production cars as well as the cheap and plentiful small English and jap body styles that you could find at the tip and stuff a big engine into. It would be great to see some of those early cars found and bought up to race ready condition.
All cars need to comply with ANDRA Tech or IHRA Tech to compete at sanctioned tracks
