The 2023/2024 National Drag Racing Championship (NDRC) Group One calendar has been unveiled.
The new NDRC was announced on the 10th of May, with the aim of unifying Australian drag racing under one national championship for both Group One and Sportsman competitors under the guiding principle of ‘One Way, Forward.’
The Group One calendar will commence in action-packed fashion with back-to-back racing weekends at The Bend Dragway across October 21-22 with the Burson Auto Parts Australian Top Fuel Championship and Sydney Dragway across October 27-28 with Nitro Funny Car.
Rounds three and four will round out 2023 at
the Perth Motorplex across November 24-25 with Nitro Funny Car, and at Willowbank Raceway across December 1-2 with Burson Auto Parts
2024 will open with fireworks at the Bend across January 13-14 with Nitro Funny Car, while January 26-27 sees round six at Sydney Dragway with Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel before the show travels again to Willowbank Raceway with Nitro Funny Car for February 16-17.
The NDRC heads to Perth Motorplex for the Westernationals for March 2-3 with Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel, before Top Fuel returns to The Bend for round nine across April 6-7, with that event to also include the Aeroflow National Sportsman Grand Finals.
The penultimate round of the NDRC Group One championship will be held with Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel at Sydney Dragway with the Nitro Champs across May 3-4.
All Group One categories, including the Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel and Nitro Funny Car Championships, will then head to the all-in mega Grand Final spectacular to be held at Willowbank Raceway’s Winternationals in June.
Race day for all eleven rounds will be broadcast live and free on the Seven Network’s digital streaming platform, 7plus, while 7mate and 7plus will each air post-produced highlight specials.
“We’re really proud of this calendar. There are eleven amazing events at Australia’s premier drag racing facilities, headlined by either the Burson Auto Parts Top Fuel Championship or the Nitro Funny Car Championship, with Top Fuel Motorcycle, Top Doorslammer, Pro Alcohol, Pro Stock, Pro Mod, Pro Stock Motorcycle and the country’s best Sportsman racers,” NDRC Co-Promoter, Andy Lopez, said.
“For competitors, this means a true national championship and a unified sport. For race fans, it means unbeatable shows with the best Australian drag racing has to offer.
“The NDRC’s motto is ‘One Way, Forward.’ We all race in the same direction, for the same reason, and it is our hope that with the NDRC having unified this great sport, we can bring it the attention and respect it deserves.”
