Racers get on track for delayed All-Bike meet

MORE than 100 drag racers have finally enjoyed Benaraby Raceway's All Bike meet, with the event running seamlessly on Saturday.

While the field was smaller than it would have been back in August as some were unable to make the new date, Brett Alloway was one rider who the change of day favoured.

Unable to make the event back in August, fortune allowed for the Harley Davidson rider to be there this time around.

"This is the third year at Benaraby for an All-Bike meet for us. We have been to Rockhampton for one as well," Alloway said.

"I was not going to make that first one, this is a bonus for me."

Riding in the twin category, Alloway was a little behind the pace he would like to be setting.

Looking to one day soon find a way into the high 10-second range, he is still working through some issues with his Harley.

Regardless of any issues though, the field being better than a usual meeting had Alloway keen to be on the tarmac.

"It is a good day, it is good to have a large field of bikes," he said.

"In your normal points round you only get the regulars so this time you get everyone."

For the Central Queensland Drag Racing Association, the large field of bikes was around the amount they expected.

Missing out on a few was a shame, but to get the turnout at Benaraby Raceway was enough for president Glenn Williams to label it a success.

"It is only a week after the nationals in Sydney as well and people broke them or had a budget," he said.

"But overall it is a pretty good turnout for a second attempt."
