  1. Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week Standing out with that eye-popping Kermit green paintjob, this Monaro GTS had the show to match its go. And boy did it have go, knocking out a best time of 11.15 @ 121.99 MPH. Top Japanese of the Week Godzilla himself decided to make an appearance at last week Race 4 Real event. With not much else other than a nice set of aftermarket wheels and a lip kit all round, this white R35 GTR looked even more aggressive. We’re all aware of what the R35 GTR is capable of and this example showed off this potential in spades. Top European of the Week Building upon what made the 458 Italia such an incredible supercar, the 488 GTB is undoubtedly one of Ferrari’s greatest hits. Powered by a twin-turbo 3.9L V8, this masterpiece is capable of a mid-10 second quarter mile pass. It was great seeing this stunning machine down here at Sydney Dragway! Top Ford of the Week With the Mustang finally reaching Aussie shores, it’s fantastic to see how just how capable these beasts really are with a bit of work. Take this blue Mustang GT, running an incredible best time of 10.15 @ 135.55 MPH down the quarter mile. Commentator’s Pick of the Week We’re no stranger to fast Toranas here at Sydney Dragway and this immaculate blue LX Torana is certainly up there with the best of them, managing a best time of 10.34 @ 133.43 MPH. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information. Stay tuned for our coverage of the next Race 4 Real event on June 28!

  2. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: June 14, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week A statement of class it may have been in its day, but this particular HZ Holden Premier was about something completely different – pure muscle. This beast managed a best time of 13.56 @ 85.25 MPH down the quarter mile. Top Japanese of the Week Looking sharp in an eye-catching coat of yellow paint and rocking a set of nicely fitted Enkei RPF1s, this immaculate DC5 Honda Integra definitely stood out. Pulling out a quick best run of 13.31 @ 220.66 MPH, this little Honda definitely impressed. Top Ford of the Week We never get tired of seeing these old Falcons down here at R4R. This immaculate 1971 XY GT pulled off an impressive best time 14.64 @ 92.30 MPH, proving that it still had plenty of pep in its step. Commentator’s Pick of the Week This not-so-humble 1976 Mitsubishi Galant was bonkers inside out from the bright green paintjob to the massively wide rear tyres and the 5.7L LS1 lurking beneath that big hood cowl. With a blisteringly fast best run of 10.66 @ 125.22 MPH, we’re sure that this Galant leaves its competition ‘FRYTND’. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information.

  4. Brasher Nats at Sydney Dragway, June 11 2017 Burnouts, burnouts & more burnouts!

  5. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: May 31, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week This angry HSV Clubsport R8 sounded and looked the absolute business rocking a red and black colour scheme and topped off perfectly with a Walkinshaw bonnet. This beast managed an impressive 13.17 @ 120.41 MPH down the strip. Top Japanese of the Week Less is definitely more with this immaculate S15 Nissan Silvia. Undoubtedly one of the cleanest S15s kicking about, rocking a set of R34 GT-R stockies, a rare set of rear pods and finished off with a front lip and a front-mount intercooler. Top European of the Week Classic Minis are definitely a welcome site here at Sydney Dragway and this one appeared to have some fairly extensive work done to it. Coated in a beautiful hue of blue and clever use of a WRX bonnet scoop made sure that this little hatch stood out. Managing a 16.05 @ 84.76 MPH, this Mini’s straight-line performance certainly impressed. Top Ford of the Week Starting out its life as a taxi cab, this humble FG Falcon was given a new lease on life with the gift of a turbo Barra powerplant swapped under the bonnet. With a best run of 11.93 @ 115.54 MPH, late arrivals are a thing of the past. Commentator’s Pick of the Week For this edition of Race 4 Real, we were treated to a visit from the world’s fastest street-driven GT-R. Capable of running 7-second passes, this R32 GT-R, affectionately dubbed ‘JUN II’, sounds just about as mental as it pulls. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information. Stay tuned for our coverage of the next Race 4 Real event!

  8. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: May 24, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week There’s not much else out there more menacing than the front end of this VT Commodore. With a best time of 11.40 @ 120.98 MPH, you wouldn’t want to catch this beast in your rear-view. Top Japanese of the Week One of the more criminally overlooked cars to come out of the Group A golden age of rally is the Mazda Familia GTX. Featuring by a turbo 1.8L with power sent to all four wheels, this unassuming little hot hatch is an absolute riot. Looking forward to seeing more of this rare piece of rally history here at Sydney Dragway! Top European of the Week These fire-breathing Mercs are really starting to take over here at Race 4 Real! This immaculate silver A45 AMG managed an impressive best run of 11.90 @ 113.67 MPH down the quarter mile. Top Rotary of the Week Straying away from the usual RX-3 recipe of candy paint and big wheels, this example took a more subtle approach, sporting its factory yellow paintjob. Not much else about it was factory however as you can probably tell by the need for a parachute and wheelie bar – and a best pass of 10.71 @ 125.04 MPH, of course. Top Ford of the Week This XY Falcon GT looked the goods and was an absolute beast, roaring down the quarter mile to a best time of 10.27 @ 134.63 MPH. Commentators Pick of the Week Not often do we see classic Minis running here at our Race 4 Real events so it was great to see this beautiful light blue example. With a best run of 14.65 @ 90.87 MPH, this Mini reminded everyone of the giant-killer status that these cult cars have earned. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information. Stay tuned for our coverage of the next Race 4 Real event on May 31!

  11. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: May 17, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week The venerable VF HSV GTS is an incredible machine right out of the box, packing a monstrous 6.2 litre V8 underneath that muscular bonnet. This silver example however, was on a whole other level, blitzing the quarter mile with a best time of 9.91 @ 146.61 MPH. Top Japanese of the Week Now here’s something you don’t see often here at Sydney Dragway. This lifted LandCruiser 70 Series pulled out an impressive 14.54 @ 97.17 MPH best run down the quarter mile. Not bad for a big, lumbering 4x4! Top European of the Week Mercedes-Benz’s answer to the hot-hatch, the A-Class stays true to the German auto-manufacturer’s habit of building deceptively classy cars with brutal performance characteristics. This beautiful grey example managed a best time of 12.40 @ 113.31 MPH in standard form, showing just how impressive these machines really are. Top Rotary of the Week The first-gen Mazda RX-7 is definitely one of the lesser seen rotors here at Sydney Dragway. Because of this, it was a delight to see this beautiful purple example turn up at last week’s R4R event and run an impressive best time of 13.16 @ 117.39 MPH. Top Ford of the Week Packing Ford’s extremely capable turbocharged ‘Barra’ straight-six, the FG FPV F6 Typhoon is a formidable challenger here at Sydney Dragway. This particular example ran a best time of 11.22 @ 121.20 MPH, proving just how well these engines perform with minimal modifications. Commentators Pick of the Week This VE HSV GTS put on an impressive showing with a best run of 11.20 @ 130.09 MPH. What was even more impressive however, was the driver’s amazing launch, pulling off an amazing .000 reaction time! Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information.

  12. EOMM at Sydney Dragway, Thursday May 25 End of Month Meet at Sydney Dragway is back again for May! End of Month Meet returns to Sydney Dragway again for this month! These meets are a great way of mingling with some like-minded car enthusiasts, showing off your pride and joy and simply just kicking back and enjoying the very best the Sydney car scene has to offer.

  13. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: May 10, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week With a best time of 10.98 @ 123.84 MPH, there’s no doubt that this purple LH Torana was packing some serious muscle underneath that enormous bonnet scoop. Top Japanese of the Week The Toyota 86 has proven to be a huge success since they first hit our roads in 2012. Toyota’s chassis combined with Subaru’s boxer powerplant has made for one incredibly balanced sports car. This white example turned up with nothing more than a set of aftermarket wheels and a TRD wing and managed a best run of 15.86 @ 90.59 MPH. Top European of the Week No one builds go-fast luxury cars quite like Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to its 375kW twin-turbo V8, this C63 AMG pulled off a best run of 11.41 @ 122.97 MPH. Pretty impressive for a luxury sedan in factory form. Top Rotary of the Week Standing out with its black and red colour scheme, this unique Mazda RX-2 buzzed down the strip to a best time of 102.69 @ 88.55 MPH. Top Ford of the Week With the Falcon now out of production, it was great to see this Aussie icon here at Sydney Dragway. With a best time of 10.72 @ 129.29 MPH down the quarter mile, this mint XY Falcon was far from standard. Commentators Pick of the Week Of all the classic muscle cars that Australia can call its own, the Chrysler Valiant is particularly rare. This gunmetal grey example was an absolute monster, cracking into the 9s with a best run of 9.80 @ 134.91 MPH. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information.

  14. Cars under the Stars at Sydney Dragway May 13 Cars under the Stars returns to Sydney Dragway for the month of March on Saturday the 13th! The show-and-shine is open to cars built pre-1988. Expect to see everything from hot rods, rat rods, classic, custom, muscle, Australian, American, German, British, Italian, concourse, pro street, tuff street, choppers, and everything in between.

  15. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: April 19, 2017 Wednesday night Race 4 Real off-street meets continue to be one of the most popular events on the Sydney Dragway calendar and it’s quite easy to see why! Here are some great performances from last week’s Race 4 Real at Sydney Dragway. Top Holden of the Week Breaking into the 12s with a 12.83 @ 110.53 MPH, this bright yellow VX Holden Commodore definitely impressed. Top Japanese of the Week This red Datsun 1200 coupe looked anything but standard with a front mounted intercooler, wider rear tyres, roll cage and the left headlight removed for induction purposes. A more than considerable power hike from factory coupled with such a lightweight body saw this little rocket pull out some fast times. Top European of the Week Of all the things that Mercedes-Benz is good at, combining sophistication, luxury and with brutish performance is way up there. Looking classy and sounding as angry as ever, this E55 AMG ran a staggering best time of 12.16 @ 116.97 MPH. Top Rotary of the Week The FD3S Mazda RX-7 is an amazing piece of machinery, even in its standard form. This, for the most part, unmodified example managed a best run of 14.81 @ 94.33 MPH, proving just how impressive this Japanese icon is straight out of the box. Top Ford of the Week This immaculate, standard-looking XA Ford Falcon looked like something your grandpa would drive around, especially in that factory brown lick of paint. So you could imagine our surprise when it pulled out an impressive 13.14 @ 105.99 MPH on the quarter mile. Commentator’s Pick of the Week With that front mounted intercooler hanging out of its front bar, this Mazda commercial van certainly isn’t one for hiding its true capabilities. A best run of 11.85 @ 104.25 MPH had everyone wondering just what exactly was rocketing this van down the strip. Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets! Gates open at 4:30PM and racing starts at 6:00PM. Check our website for T&C’s and entry information. Next Race 4 Real is this Wednesday April 26, 2017.
