Due to the overwhelming demand following last week’s announcement that The Bend will host the opening round of the National Drag Racing Championship on October 21-22, General Admission tickets for the event will now be on sale at 2PM ACST today.
Last Friday’s announcement was well received amongst the starved South Australian Drag Racing community with reserved grandstand seating and corporate hospitality tickets selling out in 3 days.
GA tickets will allow fans access to unreserved terrace seating on the Western and Eastern sides of the coliseum-like start line area at the Dragway as well as the grass mounds running down the strip which will undoubtedly be full for the historic October event.
The Spring Nationals will feature Top Fuel, Top Doorslammer, Top Fuel Motorcycles and Pro Stock Motorcycles on track with GA ticket holders able to roam amongst the cars with pit access included.
The Dragway at The Bend will host a further two rounds of the NDRC 23/24 season on January 13-14, 2024, and April 6-7, 2024 following the October season opener.
Alistair MacDonald, CEO The Bend Motorsport Park:
“The support from the fans and stakeholders of the sport has been phenomenal and is a testament to the vision of the Shahin family for The Bend to form the home of Drag Racing in South Australia.
We thank everyone for getting behind the new Dragway at The Bend from the very start and cannot wait to see it full in October for the season opener.”
Andy Lopez, National Drag Racing Championship
“Selling out grandstands and corporate tickets for the first round of the National Drag Racing Championship and Burson Top Fuel Championship in three days is an amazing result!
It's testament to the pent up appetite for top flight drag racing in South Australia and the excitement around this amazing facility at the Bend.”
