AUSTRALIAN WINTERNATIONALS POSTPONED
The 2020 Gulf Western Oil Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway has been postponed until Sept 17-20.
Australia’s largest drag race, initially scheduled for June 3-7, will also change from a five to a four-day event and be preceded by the traditional Warmup event to be held a week earlier, September 12-13
“Obviously there is an incredible amount of uncertainty in the world at the moment, but we are one hundred percent committed to making the 2020 Gulf Western Oil Winternationals happen.” said Tony Wedlock, President of Willowbank Raceway.
“The Willowbank Raceway board is committed to running the event and providing an opportunity to see Australia’s best drag racers compete at Australia’s best drag racing event. With all the negativity around at the moment, as a board we felt we would like to give everyone something positive to aim for and that is that the Winternationals will go ahead once we get through this crisis.
"We understand that postponing the event is disappointing, but now having the clarity around the re-scheduling of the event will allow spectators and competitors to adjust their plans.
“Everyone at Willowbank Raceway is absolutely determined to see the event go on and ensure that the 2020 Gulf Western Oils Winternationals continues the proud tradition of this event's history.”
