Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series presented by Whyalla City Council
Round 9 – March 11-13, 2016
Modified Bike Results from Steel City Raceway
Gavin Dohnt (Henty, VIC) had previously lost to Gordon Crawford in the Modified Bike final at South Coast Raceway in Portland but he got his revenge today defeating Crawford and taking home his second win in a row following the Australian Nationals.
Dohnt had an inferior reaction time and needed to ride around Crawford on a 6.006 ET with a 5.98 dial in at 112.53 mph from a 6.487 ET on a 6.40 dial at 107.93 mph. Dohnt defeated Don Baird, Toni Keating and Championship leader Shane Walker on his way to the final.
“That’s pretty exciting, you never know what’s going to happen on a race weekend,” said Dohnt.
“Guys like Gordon pull one out of their back pocket every now and then so I’m really happy. It’s been a fantastic weekend, the Steel City Drag Club has been brilliant, our bracket marshal has been awesome, and it’s just been great.”
ANDRA would like to thank the Steel City Drag Club and their volunteers for their hard work in staging the event and to Whyalla City Council for their support in bringing the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series to the region.
The 10th and final round of the 2015/2016 ANDRA Championship Season takes place at Adelaide International Raceway April 9-10 as part of the ANDRA Championship Grand Final alongside the ANDRA Drag Racing Series.

The Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd, or ANDRA for short, is the drag racing sanctioning body of Australia.
The organization was created in 1973 from a more drag racing oriented faction of the Australian Hot Rod Federation.
Today ANDRA sanctions races throughout Australia and throughout the year at all levels, from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster, on everything from temporary regional tracks to international standard facilities in capital cities.
ANDRA and its members make drag racing a family friendly, safe sport. So come along as a spectator or bring your street car to an “off street” event and enjoy the excitement that is Australian drag racing.
