Sunday 20th July 2014
Left home in the 3 door at 5am for the 2 hour drive south west to Willowbank Raceway Drag Strip, the new venue for the 32nd QLD AFD. Due to the growing number of cars that outgrew the Kedron, Brisbane venue the hosts, the Falcon GT Club moved the venue an hour west to Willowbank.
The weather was perfect.
We had a good turnout of RS’s on the day and teamed up with the SEQ Euro Fast Ford group and the guys from SCS Motorsport. Sierra and Sapphire Cosworth’s in all 3 colours, Escort Mk 2 Mexico, RS2000 Mk 2′s, Focus RS’s and ST’s ensured the crowd had plenty to talk about. Jon put in a huge effort, bringing his RS500, Sapphire and new track car with its new Brock livery. Just over 700 cars were on display. The event also offered anyone to try out drag racing for a $20 cost for as many runs as you wanted in a 2 hour window. A few of the guys had a go in their Sierra’s and Focus’s.
Everyone had a great day and it is nice to be part of the small Ford scene up here in south east QLD. The owners are all very keen and with the Focus RS’s and new ST model Fiesta and Focus’s teaming up with us older Ford owners we have a fantastic blend of youth keeping the small Fords alive here.
