400 Thunder Pro Series at Willowbank Raceway

Get ready to spend your summer night with the roar of the engine... at 400 Thunder.
The Great Day Out, Lifestyle and Travel Program

How do you want to spend a hot summer night? Do you want to hear the roar of the engine, be hit with a wall of sound that nearly knocks you off your feet? You want 400 Thunder Pro Series at Willowbank — drag racing’s finest.

The term ‘drag racing’ comes from the 1950s when rebellious teenagers would race down the main drag. Today, it’s spectacular for everyone to enjoy.

We caught up with current Australian Top Fuel Champion and she is fantastic! That’s right, we said ‘she’ — Kelly Betts.

Kelly may be a world champ, but she’s always ready to give time to her fans, and at Willowbank, you can see the action behind the scenes.

Kelly’s not the only female driver on the track… we also caught up with young gun Ashley Sanford from the US of A.

This is a sport of high-octane, high-energy thrills and yes, there can be ‘spills’ — so all safety measures are in place.

Get ready to spend your summer night with the roar of the engine. Book your tickets for the New Year’s Thunder event on January 4, 2020 at Willowbank Raceway — kids 13 years and under are free.
