THE squeal of rubber as it contacts with the tarmac. You’ve heard it before right. When the plane touches down on the runway and skids to a stop. This Saturday though, that sound will be car tyres as they launch from the end of Gunnedah Airport’s runway.
More than 100 cars are set to battle the clock in the first ever Race Revolution, a half mile (804-metres) motor sport event being held at the Aerodrome from 8.30am to 5pm this Saturday, 1 September.
The charity event, which will this year raise money for children affected by drought, is the next chapter in a journey that began in 2012 and consists of single vehicles racing the clock non-stop across a half mile distance.
Speeds from competitors are expected to reach in excess of 300km/h, with Race Revolution set to attract motoring enthusiasts and spectators with a love for performance cars and good clean racing.
Race Revolution is proudly supported by major sponsor Power Plus Racing Fuels, and supporting partners Fenton Air Services, TurboSmart, Haltech Engine Management Systems, Jack Link’s, AES Racing Mufflers and Xpiggy Customs.
It’s also sponsored by Kennards Hire Tamworth, Full Noise Photography and Exhaust Notes Australia. Tickets are available at the gate and are $15 for adults and $10 for children aged 5-16 years. Children under 5 are free and family passes are available.
The general public will have access to the race cars and the chance to chat with the drivers during the scheduled lunch break between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
You can also catch all the action right here on the Exhaust Notes Australia website, with our LIVE BLOG online from 8.15am on Saturday, direct from Gunnedah.
