Unmissable: Xiberras ready for Nitro Champs double header

Peter Xiberras’ Supercars team might be competing on the other side of the country during the Gulf Western Oil Nitro Champs, but with two Top Fuel championship rounds to be held in two days at the Sydney Dragway event, there was never any question about where the two-time Top Fuel champion would be across May 17-19.



The three-day event at Xiberras’ home-track is shaping up to be Australia’s biggest nitro-fuelled drag racing event, featuring not only two Top Fuel championship rounds, but also XPRO Nitro Funny Cars, Top Doorslammer, Pro Stock, FuelTech Pro Mod, and two rounds of the Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship, plus aerial acrobatics from Australia's own Red Bull Air Race world champion and former Royal Australian Air Force top gun fighter pilot, Matt Hall.


“There was never any question, we could not miss the Gulf Western Oil Nitro Champs,” Xiberras said.


“This event is going to be huge, especially when it comes to the Top Fuel title with two championship rounds across Saturday and Sunday.


“With the championship so tight at the moment and only three rounds left in the chase, every single run, every single point, is incredibly important.


“Add to that the fact this is my home event as a Sydney-sider, and the appeal of the Nitro Champs just goes to another level again – there is nothing quite like racing in front of your friends and family.”


Xiberras has some clear goals in mind for the May 17-19 event in the PremiAir Nulon Racing Top Fuel dragster.



“We have tasted success at Sydney before, hopefully we can do it again!” he said.


“We also have our sights set on reclaiming the records Damien Harris took from us at the last round – we held them for quite some time, and if we can get the 60-foot issues that have been plaguing us of late sorted out, I don’t see why we can’t take it back.


“The one thing that is guaranteed is that the stakes are going to be super high in Sydney – fans of all things nitro and of Top Fuel in particular are in for a treat!”


The National Drag Racing Championship is taking the Gulf Western Oil Nitro Champs (May 17-19) to new heights in 2024, in what is shaping up to be Australia’s biggest nitro fuelled drag racing event, with spectators urged to pre-purchase their tickets to make sure they can secure their spot trackside for the non-stop event.


Tickets are available now at ndrc.tv with kids aged 10 and under gaining free access with a paying adult.
