"We in South Australia have been left without a Drag Racing Facility for quite a few years now. We have no Sanctioned Racing and not even any Street Meets.

The Car community of Adelaide is suffering well because of this. We need to do something. We need to band together to get a state facility built here.

If other states can do it, so can we. There are currently NO plans for a State Drag Racing Facility for South Australia that we are aware of, this issue needs to be addressed.

The Motorsport community has suffered enough.

I call on all car enthusiasts and drag racers of South Australia and Australia to band together to enforce the need here for a State Drag Racing facility.

Let's get together as a Vehicle Enthusiasts Community should, and let the Government know that we WANT them to acknowledge our need for the above." quote

A drag strip with in the Adelaide (or out side) area will not only give drivers the chance to see 1/4 times there 'BEASTS' can do but hopefuly will keep them (us) hooning around the streets.

below is a petition for a drag strip in SA -PLEASE SIGN THANKS-

yeah my old man used to tell stories about how he used 2 bags of soil to get more 'down force' for his old rx7. i think he was balls**ting but how it would be nice to just go to the track and see your 1/4 again!!!!!!

I've been to the AIR website and the track is still under construction, :roll: it was supposed to be ready back in March. What excuse will they come up with next! I'm pretty sure the 22km 4 lane
Northern Expressway will be completed before AIR's track is finally resurfaced & ready for drag racing.

Apparently there is a nice little setup near Murray Bridge that Mitsubishi want to get rid of which has all the offroad trackwork motor sports entusiasts could want. I've heard the govt already uses it for police training, so if the govt bought that maybe we could all share it. :)

The government will never get involved in getting a drag strip up and running and they will make it nearly impossible to run AIR like it used too when I used to race there. They will place restrictions on noise etc that will make it hard to run a decent meet there.
Why???
Because the "hoon" laws are a great money spinner for the government; a drag strip is not.
