Perth Motorplex hosts three rounds in the just released 2018-19 national drag racing calendar.
The Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) confirmed nine-rounds for the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series, including the first two successfully completed in the Northern Territory earlier in July.
By the time the championship chase winds up in Perth next April, the series will have unfolded across the NT, Victoria and Western Australia.

Next up is Victoria’s Sunset Strip Nationals at Mildura across September 22-23, staying in Victoria for round four at Portland’s South Coast Raceway November 10-11, before the championship jets to WA for Perth’s Goldenstates December 1.
Perth Motorplex will host both the penultimate and final rounds of the 18/19 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series, with the Westernationals March 2-3 and the grand final April 6-7.
Should Junior Drag Racing continue to be suspended in WA by the time Portland’s January event is held, a Junior Grand Final is scheduled for Mildura’s February 15-16.
