Harry just Wanna Play

LOOKING at his junior dragster called Wanna Play, 12-year-old Harry Thwaite said he hoped to continue his perfect dial in time.

This was during Saturday's round two of the Central Queensland Drag Racing Association Championships at Benaraby Raceway where Harry clocked 0.000.

"My dad Nathan tells me how to cut a good light," Harry said in explaining how to race to as close as to a set time as possible.

"He also tells me how to get pedal to the metal."

Nathan is also a drag racer who currently competes in his HJ One Tonne Ute.

"He got me into racing in September 2014 and I love the speed and have the need for speed," Harry said.

There's plenty to look forward to for the youngster and he takes pride in his shiny new machine.

"I love to polish my car and love winning trophies as well as sitting in my car," Harry added.

While he enjoys other sports such as tennis, motorsport is where it's at for Harry.

He also owns a Ford Festiva in which he is learning the art of drifting.

"I like to have fun with dad in the shed and like being around car and the noise," Harry said.

"Dad has got me into a drifting competition," Harry added.

But that's not the only competition he will be in.

Harry said he was also nominated for the 2016 Winter Nationals in Willowbank from June 6 and 7.

He will also race in the next meet at Benaraby in round two of the Eighth Mile series on April 23.
