Weston Looking For Good Result At Westernationals

Western Australia’s most prestigious drag racing event of the season occurs on 30th & 31st January at the Perth Motorplex. Talent from all over the country will attend the 44th Westernationals for Round 1 of the Top Alcohol National ANDRA championship.

With a number of teams stepping up this year the fight is going to be very tough to win the championship event. At recent testing Craig Glassby’s funny car ran a 5.46 and Shane managed to get back to his personal best time of 5.54.

There will be 10 cars consisting of dragsters, funny cars and altereds all competing for the final eight spots.   WA Drivers, Weston, Pilkington, Glassby, Marchant, Del Caro and Begley will be taking it to the Eastern State/NT guys, Phillips, O’Rourke, Ambruosi and Canuli. Weston is still the youngest competing driver in the series at 22 years of age.

dna150102The team suffered some damage from the recent testing from an over rev when the lenco broke, this is all getting repaired and we will be firing on all eight cylinders come Friday 30th January. This is the event that Shane and the team really want to win as it has eluded him since his racing career began in Juniors 15 years ago.

Our aim this year is to go through to the finals.   Last year we got knocked out in the semi- finals but we have learnt and developed a lot from then.

The last couple of meetings we have had very good consistency with the car running between 5.54 & 5.65 every lap, with a win against John Zappia at the 02nd January re-run meeting. But once we add more power to this hotrod consistency is sacrificed, as it becomes a fine line between right and wrong. This is the next challenge for the team.

We are displaying the dragster at Langley Park at the ANDRA display for the sky show on Monday January 26th and at Armadale Shopping City on Wednesday January 28th so come down and say hello.

We would love to see you supporting us on Friday (Qualifying times 5.40pm, 7.40pm, 9.40pm) and Saturday (Eliminations 6.15pm, 8.10pm, 10pm) at the Perth Motorplex
