  4. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: February 22, 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 no arguing that the HQ Holden Kingswood is an Aussie icon and a valuable piece of Australian motoring history. With Holden ceasing to exist very soon, it was great to see this blast from the past strutting its stuff here at Sydney Dragway and running an impressive best time of 12.99 @ 111.65 MPH. Top Japanese of the Week Not every day do you see an R33 Skyline GT-R rocking one of its most desirable paint options, Midnight Purple. This beautiful example managed a best run of 11.91 @ 76.84, but with those plates we’re sure that its capable of much quicker times. Top Bike of the Week It was great to see some two-wheeled action at Race 4 Real. This black and gold Suzuki GSXR1000 broke into the 10s with a best run of 10.16 @ 133.38 MPH, giving the cars a run for their money. Top European of the Week German muscle at its absolute finest, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is the perfect combination of European refinement and brutal tyre-shredding performance. This stunning C63 AMG Edition 507 ran a best time of 12.26 @ 117.09 MPH. Top Ford of the Week Managing a best run in the 11s with a 11.32 @ 133.16 MPH, this FG Falcon XR6 was a force to be reckoned with. Commentators Pick of the Week The barebones, no-nonsense Caterham 7 is arguably the ultimate weekend track-day weapon and very rarely seen here on Australian soil. Due in no small part to its ultra-lightweight body, this silver example was piloted to a best time of 12.00 @ 115.79 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. Next Race 4 Real is this Wednesday March 1, 2017. See you there!

  6. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: February 15, 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 tough LX Torana SS hatch was a sight to behold with those fat rear tyres, air cleaner poking out of the bonnet and of course, that bright blue paintjob. Managing a best run of 11.01 @ 127.86 MPH, this mighty Torana meant business. Top Japanese of the Week Despite being overshadowed by its curvier younger brother, the MK3 Toyota Supra possess just about as much potential. This clean, white example proved exactly that with an impressive best run of 10.24 @ 139.24 MPH. Top Rotary of the Week The first-gen RX7 captured hearts the world over, introducing many enthusiasts to the joys of rotary performance in a lightweight, nimble chassis. To this day, they continue to be a popular base for modification with this particular example running a best time of 11.53 @ 130.23 MPH. Top European of the Week Audi’s superwagon, the RS6, put on an impressive showing here at Sydney Dragway with a best time of 11.36 @ 124.42 MPH. Supercar performance in a handsome, practical wagon body? Yes please. Top Ford of the Week The MK1 Ford Escort marks the beginning of a long lineage of fast Fords, developing a well-deserved cult following. This black beauty showed up at Sydney Dragway looking immaculate and ran some impressive times to match. Commentators Pick of the Week The 180B isn’t a particularly common platform for Datsun modification like the 510 or the S30. This made it a pleasant surprise to see this blue example turn up and run a best time of 13.61 @ 108.42 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. Next Race 4 Real is this Wednesday, February 22.

  10. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: January 25, 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 Pulling of a best time of 12.68 @ 111.85 MPH, this VE Series II Commodore Sportwagon is certainly for more than just hauling the family around. Top Japanese of the Week Even for the mighty rotary, breaking into the nine-second bracket is an incredible feat. This FD RX7 managed exactly that with a best run of 9.54 @ 152.62 MPH. Top European of the Week Utilising the proven combination of turbocharged power and AWD grip, the Golf R is an absolute beast with a tonne of potential. This MK6 Golf R in Rising Blue managed an impressive best time of 11.99 @ 115.67 MPH. Top Ford of the Week With a best time of 12.19 @ 118.37 MPH, this FG FPV Ute certainly meant business. FPV may be long gone, but their cars will no doubt continue to be a staple here at Sydney Dragway. Commentators Pick of the Week On the outside, the HQ Ute looked extremely understated. However, there’s no mistaking its true intentions – run fast times and shred tires. Running a best time of 11.89 @ 115.80 MPH and capable of producing a remarkable smoke show, the HQ does both things extremely well. 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, February 1. See you there!

Top Rotary of the Week This neat RX-7 street car pulled out a healthy 13.13 @ 107.75mph. Whatever is under the bonnet, it sure sounded good. Top European of the Week European V8 coupes don’t come much cooler than the Audi RS 5. The 4.2-litre V8 sounded sublime near its high-rpm rev limit, chasing down the finish line for a best time of 13.29 @ 104.77mph. Top Ford of the Week Managing a best ET of 10.52 @ 130.03mph, this red Falcon screamed louder than a rock star, and sure looked like one too with its shiny red paint. Top Holden of the Week Nothing looks as cool as a fat VK with a cranky V8. This fast Holden ripped up the track for a best time of 12.35 @ 113.47mph. Commentators Pick of the Week This standard-looking Honda Civic apparently wasn’t so standard, running to the 11-second bracket all night. The Honda went on to run best quarter mile time of 11.91 @ 116.09mph! Race 4 Real is on every Wednesday night at Sydney Dragway, weather permitting. Keep it safe, legal and off the streets!

  17. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: December 7, 2016 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 LH G-Pack Torana was immaculate as they come and packed some serious grunt behind it, running a best time of 11.96 @ 119.23 MPH. Top Japanese of the Week Practically a staple here at Sydney Dragway, you can always count on an Evo to run a blisteringly fast time. The iconic turbocharger AWD monster is capable of achieving impressive numbers, both in terms of power and race times, with relative ease. This red Evo IX was a great example of this, pulling off an impressive best run of 11.17 @ 123.13 MPH. Top Rotary of the Week The first generation of Mazda’s legendary rotary-powered sports coupe, the FB RX-7 is by far the least common iteration going around so it’s always a delight to see them turn up here at Sydney Dragway. This particular example appeared to be in original condition on the outside but a best time of 12.68 @ 111.82 MPH indicated anything but underneath that bonnet. Top European of the Week Mercedes-Benz’s fire-breathing hot hatch, the A45 AMG is the most powerful production hatchback available today with a staggering 280kW at its disposal. This power is generated by a turbocharged inline-4 unit and sent to all four wheels through a sophisticated AWD system, piloting this A45 to a best time of 12.22 @ 112.14 MPH. Top Ford of the Week A bona fide street machine, this XY Falcon Ute was presented immaculately and had the speed to match its tough looks, running all the way into the tens with a best time of 10.96 @ 121.97 MPH. Commentators Pick of the Week A standout performer, this XW Ford Falcon looked like it was ripped straight out of the 70s. This beauty had two drivers on the night, managing a best time of 11.31 @ 120.33 MPH and running consistent quarter-mile times all night long. 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.

  20. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: November 16, 2016 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 Australia’s automotive manufacturing industry coming to a close, it was great to see bona fide Australian classic such as this beautiful yellow HT Monaro GTS strutting its stuff down the quarter-mile. Props to the owner for keeping it in such immaculate condition. Top Japanese of the Week Certainly not something you see every day, this Mitsubishi Express was anything but standard – and with a best time of 14.64 @ 92.61 MPH, I’m not just talking about that paintjob. Top European of the Week AWD and turbocharged power are a match made in heaven for running quick times down the quarter mile and this Golf R proved exactly that, running a 12.93 @ 105.68 MPH. Top Ford of the Week Speaking of great Aussie classics, Holdens weren’t the only brand represented with this immaculate XR Falcon Ute representing the blue oval’s Australian heritage. Classics like this never fail to attract loads of attention here at Sydney Dragway. Commentators Pick of the Week Representing the very best that American Muscle has to offer, this second-gen Chevy Camaro was an absolute crowd-pleaser. Managing a two-wheel stand on launch, there’s no doubting the kind of firepower that this Camaro is packing under that bonnet cowl. 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.

  21. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: October 26, 2016 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 Managing a best run down the quarter mile of 11.42 @ 118.74 MPH, this relatively sedate looking VL Commodore reminded everyone that the mighty VL Turbo can still hang with the new blood. Top Japanese of the Week The Subaru Liberty is the epitome of a wolf in sheep’s clothing and the Gen 4 is arguably its most popular iteration, combining sharp, understated styling with WRX-matching performance in GT form with the potential for even more. This grey example ran a best time of 14.51 @ 96.77 MPH, demonstrating just how capable these machines really are. Top Rotary of the Week This green Mazda 1300 was certainly different from the rotary builds we usually see here at Sydney Dragway. With that signature rotary powerplant coupled with a tare weight of about 900 KG, give or take, this little monster ran a best time of 10.65 @ 122.11 MPH. Top European of the Week The MK7 Volkswagen Golf R is a technical showcase of just how far the hot hatch has come since the introduction of the MK1 Golf GTI more than 40 years ago. Boasting a turbocharged powerplant and immense AWD grip, the Golf R rocketed down the quarter mile to a best time of 11.94 @ 115.07 MPH. Top Ford of the Week Breaking into the 10 second bracket is a serious feat for a street car and the FG Falcon is one of the easiest cars to achieve this in with not too much by way of modifications. Managing a best run of 10.72 @ 129.31 MPH, this Falcon was packing some serious horsepower. Commentator’s Pick of the Week Definitely not something you see every day, it was definitely a pleasant surprise to see this Ford F-150 testing its performance here at Sydney Dragway. As menacing as they come with its enormous bull bar, a set of off-road radials and those ridiculously large exhaust tips, this beast of an F-150 stormed down the strip to a best time of 17.73 @ 77.90 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.

  23. Weekly Race 4 Real Report: October 19, 2016 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 Definitely no stranger to a good smoke show, this blue VX Commodore looked as good as it sounded and packed some serious performance to match. That massive hood cowl, a hint at the kind of immense horsepower lurking within this Commodore’s engine bay. Top Japanese of the Week The GT-T Skyline is often overlooked against its GT-R counterpart, offering RWD instead of AWD and the RB25 single turbo setup as opposed to the GT-R’s RB26 twin-turbo powerplant. However, they’re definitely no slouch, packing loads of potential. Take this silver R34 for example, running a seriously impressive best time of 11.72 @ 133.38 MPH. Top Rotary of the Week Little cars burning fat sets of rubber are always a welcome sight here at Sydney Dragway. This green monster of a Mazda R100 put on a show, sounding mental and managing an insane best time of 10.70 @ 128.51 MPH. Top European of the Week When it comes to making go-fast SUVs, Mercedes-Benz definitely knows a thing or two. Take this ML63 AMG for example, running a best time of 12.12 @ 115.17 MPH – mind-blowing performance out of an SUV. Top Ford of the Week Cracking into the 10s with a best run down the strip of 10.82 @ 134.52 MPH, this FG Falcon proved itself to be an absolute beast of a performer. And those plates? A sign of things to come for anyone who dares to test their own machine against it. Commentator’s Pick of the Week It’s clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into EH Holden and it’s most definitely paid off, being one of the best presented examples we’ve seen down here at Race 4 Real. And with a best time of 12.56 @ 116.93 MPH, you can be assured that there’s much more to this build than that beautiful exterior. 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 October 26, 2016. See you there!
