Benaraby Drag Racers speeding to winner's podium
DRAG RACING: The Central Queensland Benaraby All Bikes Drag Racing event will see fast and historic bikes go head-to-head tomorrow.
The CQDRA All Bike Racing is set to be an action-packed weekend with another huge turnout expected.
One motorbike enthusiast heading down will be Gladstone Historic Motorbike secretary John Sanders with his red Italian 1985 Le Mans 1000 - Moto Guzzi.
"There is a historic bike class and I might consider putting the bike in for a drag race," he said.
"The bike really isn't designed for drag racing, more for the longer format of racing.
"It's going to be a fun weekend and not just bike enthusiasts should go down but people in general should have a look."
There will be several classes for the bikes including, True Street, Bagger, Modified Bike, Twins and Singles, Historic-pre 1989 and the traditional, ever-popular Burnout.
Drag racing president Colin O'Connor said he looked forward to a crowd-pleasing race event.
"There will be a test and tune on Friday and that is open to cars and bikes and then on Saturday it's all about the bikes," he said.
"It's going to be a pretty big event and previously there has been 176 races during the day."
Gate entry is $25, with qualifying from 10am-1pm and racing 1.30pm till late.
There will be a live band playing afterwards and plenty of space for camping, which is included in gate entry.
