Australia’s Castle Hill Performance takes 1st place in Australia drag racing series
Australia’s Castle Hill Performance race team took their race car to the Willowbank raceway in Brisbane Australia for the 3rd round of the Kenda 660 drag radial series. Armed with their twin turbo GTX5533R Gen II powered Commodore, they made a strong qualifying pass of 4.38@169 which put the team into the 3rd qualifying spot. Headed into the first round of eliminations the team turned up boost in an effort to improve their qualifying time which resulted in a 4.20@179MPH in the quarter mile. That pass not only resulted in a win, it also was a new personal best time. The team went on to defeat several more teams and made it to the final round managing a 4.9 second 1/4 mile pass that was good enough to take the win.
