The next round of the 400 Thunder Professional series takes place at the Southern Thunder at Adelaide International Raceway on March 23-24 featuring Pro Slammer, Pro Stock and Pro Bike.

Qualifying

400 Thunder Top Bike was also decided in a thrilling last session where Mark Drew used a 6.638 to pip Chris Matheson’s 6.667.

Drew earned a solo run for the first round as a reward for the top qualifying pass and said he expects quicker times on Sunday.

“Hopefully we can get back to the 6.3s we know we can run,” he said. “We will have to service the motor and check out the pistons after some of the runs we made today, but otherwise all is going well.

“The solo is good but I’d rather be up against someone to tell you the truth.”

Jay Upton qualified third with a 7.004 even with an early shut off, while Greg Durack held a narrow margin to fourth on a 7.008. Benny Stevens (7.208), Wayne McGuinness (7.482) and Les Holden (7.633) rounded out the field
