Huge 400 Thunder Season Ahead

Corey Buttigieg's 400 Thunder Top Bike campaign remains on track despite all drag racing events having been postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

With COVID-19 restrictions starting to lift around Australia, elite sports such as the Supercars, AFL and NRL are starting to restart their seasons and everyone seems to now be speculating about when drag racing will resume.

With such a long and unusual break in racing this year we’re all hoping that new event dates can be announced soon.  The next round of the 400 Thunder Australian Professional Drag Racing Series is sure to be big and so fingers crossed motorsport fans will be able to come out and support their favourite race teams in a big way as well.

The NSW Government will take advantage of current track closures to undertake a $33 million upgrade of Sydney Motorsport Park, which includes $11 million for Sydney Dragway.  The upgrades include a new concrete track surface, as well as a bunch of upgrades to pit lane and spectator areas.  I can’t wait to see the new facilities and test out the new track.  Fingers crossed it sorts out the dip in the braking zone.

In the meanwhile, we're getting ready

Huge thank you to everyone who has been keeping me busy with their projects through COVID-19. I can’t wait to show you all the cool stuff being developed for when racing gets back underway around Australia later this year.

Speaking with Corey Buttigieg on the phone the other day he was keen to get back on track as soon as interstate travel bans lift and new event dates can be announced.  I can’t wait to be trackside supporting him.

On 16 January 2020, Corey Buttigieg and his Fastamoto team arrived at Sydney Dragway to begin the IHRA registration process for his upcoming campaign to race in the premier Top Bike bracket of the 2020/21 400 Thunder Australian Professional Drag Racing Series. His new nitro powered top fuel motorcycle with over 1,000 horsepower will propel Corey down the quarter mile quicker than we’ve ever seen him go before.
