Drag Racing News, Sydney Dragway News, ATFC | 21 Jan 2022 |

Despite logging at least the first qualifying session for all categories, the weather ultimatley had the final say at Sydney Dragway for Round 1 of the Burson Autoparts Australian Top Fuel Championship on Friday. 

The provisional number one qualifier in Top Fuel is Peter Xiberas with an early shut off 3.83 second pass. 3 time Australian Champ Phil read hold second, with Top Fuel rookie Shane Olive nailing third place with a 3.89.

Pro  Stock sees Chris Soldatos in the number one spot with a 6.941, and Robert Dekert only 5-thousandths of a second behind in second with a 6.946.

Pro Mod unfortunately did not hit the track, as they were in the lanes ready to run when the heavens opened. 

Top Bike was a mixed affair with Robert Cassar currently leading with a 7.09.

All categories will hit the track tomorrow for an additional Qualifying session before racing begins in the afternoon. 

Spectator Gates open at 9.30, with on-track action from 10am. For the full schedule, click HERE .
