BLACKTOWN.....DRAGSTRIP AND RACEWAY..

BLACKTOWN...Another of Sydney's Western suburbs with city classification..There are many attractions in Blacktown but the biggest attraction for me is the Eastern Creek Raceway..really a place for "petrol heads" ..but I just love to come and support some friends who have a drag racing team and race here...here one can watch the "top fuellers" the "slingshot dragsters"".. funny cars..and stockies..also bikes...The events are always advertised in local and city papers...entrance fee is about $20 for the day..also here they hold the" Annual Hot Rod Show"

BLACKTOWN...EASTERN CREEK RACEWAY AND DRAGSTRIP..

There is always an immense amount of anticipation while getting ready in the staging area for the incredibly fast race that lasts only a few seconds ..at incredible speeds reached..

BLACKTOWN..EASTERN CREEK RACE WAYAND DRAGSTRIP

After the quick standing quarter mile race the vehicle is towed back to the racing teams work area... RACE TIME: 6.28 SECONDS.. SPEED:218 M.P.H. I think that time was about 330 K.P.H... Nevertheless...extremely fast. .using both parachutes to stop...
