Weston Ready To Race

IMG_9589Australia’s fastest teenager Shane Weston is entering this weekend’s Perth Motorplex Grand Opening on October 29th full of optimism after successfully upgrading his Unlimited Drag Racing Licence (UDL) to Group 1 (GOL) status.

The opening event is not only an opportunity to mix it with some of the best supercharged drag racers in the country, but also to hone his skills in preparation for his first ever entry into ANDRA Pro Series Drag Racing at the following event as a now fully licensed Top Alcohol racer.

Weston licensed last weekend at the Perth Motorplex over two days of testing.

The team’s first lap after the winter break was a 6.02 @ 235.60mph (379mkh), followed by a 6.01 @ 234.37mph (377kmh) in Saturday’s warm weather.

Weston commented “We worked hard to get some very important laps in today which was crucial towards getting our Top Alcohol license. The car felt good, and it was great to be back in it again. We have changed the old 2-step set up we used to run which would leave the car on full throttle to suit Top Alcohol, and now I have to bring the revs up which was different to get used to, but all in all it was a good day.”

Then Sunday, they returned and put down another 6.02, followed by a Top Alcohol licensing 5.837 @ 239.36mph (385kmh).

“We are just so happy to get licensed for Top Alcohol. When we were in Queensland, we had some assistance from fellow racer Jamie Noonan in his immaculate workshop. We race as a family, and to go all that way and get such friendly help is what our sport is all about. I am just so happy to be licensed now in what is a great family sport.”

Weston will be competing in K Trans Top Comp this Saturday night before preparing for the 40th annual Goldenstates where he will be competing in ANDRA Pro Series Top Alcohol. They will try and run the Westernationals and the Winternationals are also booked. The team are currently seeking local and corporate sponsors come on board.
