The brains behind this successful
event is Lawrence's very own Bill
Bazley, who has been the star of the
show from the very beginning.
As organising committee spokesman,
Bill said the event was initially conceived
as a constructive outlet for young petrol
heads in the area. But 21 years on, the
event has gone from strength to
strength, bringing entries from far and
''A cousin and I came up with the idea
way back when, and in its first
year we had around 50 entries, so
there was pretty strong interest
from the word go,'' he said.
The quarter-mile drag has seen up
to 100 entries, which is the limit
for reasons of practicality, and this
year they expect to reach their
limit of entries very quickly.
But what is it that gets the blood
pumping of those wild competi-
It's 13 seconds of adrenaline-
fueled, heart-pumping, rubber-
burning fun along Weatherstones
straight, at the golf club end of
Anyone with a current driver's
licence can enter, but three key
rules have to be followed:
1. A compliant helmet and 100 percent
cotton overalls must be worn.
2. The highest grade of fuel to be used is
3. Strictly no dogs or BYO alcohol, as a
licensed booth is available on-site.
These rules have been set up with
participant and viewer safety in mind, so
Bill urges everyone to follow these rules.
If you fancy testing your 'beast' against a
diverse group of enthusiastic locals and
those from further afield, then entries
are still open but will close on April 5th.
Whether you're male or female, young
or old, this event is for you, and will
certainly be a great day out. There are
multiple classes available, so no matter
your vehicle - mini or monster, you are
welcomed to the Lawrence Quarter-mile
drag with open arms!
Entries are $40 per person, and you may
end up sharing in the prize pool
generously donated by local sponsors.
Prize giving will be held at 4:30pm at the
Lawrence Golf Club, with a trophy being
presented for the winner of each class.
As per tradition, all money raised will go
towards local emergency
services, helping out those
And if the excitement of the
day leaves you feeling a bit
peckish? Fear not, for the Lawrence
Lions Club will be laying on one of their
classic barbecues to satisfy that hunger.
With such a fantastic event planned, do
not miss out, entries close soon!
