Australia's biggest and best drag racing event continues to attract corporate support from an extremely diverse range of sponsors.  Once again, every category of racing being contested at the final round of the 400 Thunder Professional and Sportsman Australian Championship Series will carry a naming rights sponsor.


Willowbank Raceway President, Tony Wedlock, commented, “Sponsors are the life blood of motorsport for everyone involved. The level of support for the Winternationals from Gulf Western Oil all the way through the very long list of marketing partners is what makes it possible for us to stage such a fantastic event. Their backing benefits every racer, spectator and television viewer. The sponsors all become part of our Willowbank Raceway family and collectively, we can’t thank them enough. We encourage all drag racers and fans to show their appreciation by patronising their businesses and buying their products.


The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals on June 6 to 9 has attracted over 500 competing teams from all over Australia, the USA and New Zealand setting the stage for four days of action-packed racing at the Ipswich facility.
