CASTROL EDGE TIN TOPS THIS WEEKEND

Date: 17/4/09

The Castrol EDGE Tin Top Titles at Willowbank Raceway is ready and rearing to go this weekend in its new Saturday/Sunday format.

The April 18 and 19 Event will host ANDRA Championship Drag Racing rounds of Top Doorslammer, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle alongside a full Sportsman line-up.

On top of that is the McKern & Associates Super Compact and Staunch Supplements & Street Machine Magazine Pro Street categories.

One of those 300 is Rod Harvey from New Zealand ready to take on the Aussie's with his 6sec Toyota Celica in the McKern & Associates Super Compact. Taking on Harvey in the McKern & Associates Super Compact are Joe Signorelli, Malcolm Glassett, Tony Wedlock, Collin Willshire, Jason Both, Mark Jacobsen & Tim Kreis.

Fans will enjoy qualifying from 9.30am in the morning to 9.00pm on Saturday night the 18th of April and racing all day Sunday from 9.30am, concluding in time for tea with the finals set to kick off at 3.45pm.

The Professional Categories of Top Doorslammer, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle plus the Pro Street Categories and Super Stock, and Competition Eliminator will be on track from 4.00pm Saturday and 12.30pm on Sunday. The full event schedule can be found online at the Willowbank Raceway website - www.willowbank-raceway.com.au

This will be the first time in the Event's long history that it has moved from its usual Friday/Saturday format to be held entirely on the weekend, with the move set to make the event more accessible to fans as well as track volunteers, officials and drivers, while ensuring an early Sunday night schedule finish at approx 4.00pm to assist families on what is traditionally a ‘school night’.

Willowbank Raceway Managing Director Steve Bettes said he was looking forward to seeing how the new schedule worked for fans and racers alike.

“The decision by Willowbank Raceway to alter the Castrol EDGE Tin Top Titles format came about from listening to feedback from the fans, the officials and also the racers, and so I am looking forward to seeing how the change works in practice," said Bettes.

“We hope that making the move will make the Event more accessible to fans who will no longer have to battle Friday afternoon traffic and will now have a whole weekend of racing action to enjoy.

“With the racing moving in entirety to the weekend it will also make it easier for our volunteer officials, who will have the impact on their day-to-day occupations lessened, as will those who travel with the race teams.

“With a move to Sunday, we have also assured that no one will have to make the choice between staying out late on a ‘school’ or ‘work night’ and seeing the end of the racing action, with racing set to conclude in the early evening with the finals scheduled to start at 3.45pm.”

The Castrol EDGE Tin Top Titles will take place on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th of April, and will feature all the sedan action from Top Doorslammer and Pro Stock as well as the two-wheeled show of the Pro Stock Motorcycle category.
