King Kermit is coming to town

KERMIT is appearing at the Benaraby Motorsportz Complex on Thursday July 22, and he is expected to leave fans choking at his performance.

No, it's not the famous Muppet on display, but the 800hp Hilux from Bundaberg, custom-built for drags.

A distinctive colour, Kermit will be strutting its stuff from 4pm onwards, with the main competition beginning at 6.30pm.

It will not all be smoke and noise on the night – there will also be just noise as well, with a stereo sound-off being fought out, and a Dyno shoot-out, with the portable from Rockhampton at the track.

On Friday, July 23, an off-street meet is being put on for all those rev-heads who think they and their vehicles have what it takes to make it as a street racer.

These events will be the ideal lead-in to round three of the Gladstone Air Cleaners Championship on Saturday, July 24.
