Racewars 2018- Top Speed Racing Done the Australian Way!
Nestled in the Western Australian town of Albany, lies a runway – normally used for a quick transit to avoid the 5 hour drive from capital city Perth, or for handful of crop dusters and the local flying doctor service. Once a year, with the support of the local government and townsfolk, this airport is shut down, and transformed into what is now Australia’s only 1000m (3280ft) V-max event. This is Racewars.
Originally conceived by a group of WA locals over maybe one too many beers, Racewars is now in its 5th year, showing that a dedicated bunch of people, supported by a strong car community can achieve great things. Welcoming all comers – irrespective of vehicle type as long as it’s fast, to put man and machine to the test over 1000m of prime tarmac.
Night 1 – Meet and Greet
The Friday evening before the big weekend gives competitors and locals the ability to display their cars, and mingle in a social environment by the local marina.
Although a bit wet and with the big hitters safely already parked at the runway, the social vibe of the pre-meet was a great precursor for the weekend’s events.
Allows you to take the kids to school, but drive home like your pants are on fire.
