IHRA CEO Maurice Allen said. “it is an initiative that I am passionate about and one I have been working on for some time”.  He added “I see it as an opportunity not only to grow our sport but also to offer another pathway for our junior competitors to follow.”

Allen went on to say, “I am pleased also that Willowbank Raceway has got behind this by wholeheartedly agreeing to run JDB as an exhibition bracket at their forthcoming New Year's Thunder event on January 4 next year”

Willowbank Raceway President, Tony Wedlock said “it is exciting for us to be in a position to debut Junior Drag Bike at New Year's Thunder, and whilst I understand it is an exhibition category at the moment, I feel the category will have the capacity not only grow the sport but also present many opportunities to those raceteams that will be competing in it.”

Two classes have been designated to Junior Drag Bike;

  • A/JDB; maximum engine capacity 300cc and a competitor minimum age of 14 years
  • B/JDB; maximum engine capacity 150cc, competitors aged from 12 years
