IHRA - 5/01/2021
Hello everyone,
I just want to confirm that we have now settled on Heathcote Park Raceway and it's now officially changed ownership.
This has been an extremely difficult process but one that I was determined to see through and make it happen.
Now it's time to get to work, and make this place the best it can be for all drag racers in Victoria.
Please support us while we put into place our plans for the upgrades over the next 12 months.
We promise you that we will provide regular updates via all our social media platforms as often as we can.
Lastly, I wish Russel Clarke all the best in his retirement.
Many Thanks
Lance Warren
