Shannons Fast Racing Series – Round 2

The popular Shannons Fast Racing Series which has been off the Perth Motorplex calendar for a while returned in full force earlier in 2021 and now is back for its second outing of the year.

What exactly is the Shannons Fast Racing Series? In a nutshell .. You get the best of Speedway and Drag Racing all in one night! Aimed at getting involved in competition at an entry level the event brings in the big names and the not so big names for a valuable track time.

Chris Mitchell commentator at both drag racing and speedway events at the Perth Motorplex, had this to say about the Fast Racing Series

“Fast Series is such a fun concept, grassroots family fun racing in the perfect timeslot to unwind and have some fun on a Friday night. You get something different to the norm on our big shows too, speedway divisions you wouldn’t normally see at the Motorplex and Junior divisions even getting a chance to run on the hallowed dirt.”

“Drag racing gives some awesome tight racing, even off street classes giving the chance for people to come race for the first time and catch the bug of drag racing.”

“The Friday night under lights format is incredibly popular with racers who want their end-of-week fix, and fans who enjoy getting amongst the action to finish off a working week.”
