THE WINTERNATIONALS, WILLOWBANK, 2012: The 45th Anniversary FUCHS Winternationals were held at Willowbank, Queensland in June, 2012. The Winternationals is the second oldest Championship Drag Racing Series in Australia and the largest outside of the USA, the annual event was initially held at Surfers Paradise International Raceway (1968~1987) and subsequently all the Winternationals have been held at Willowbank Raceway. The title sponsor for 2012 was FUCHS Lubricants (Australasia) Pty Ltd, there first year of sponsorship.

In 1993 the Winternationals was elevated to national event status by the sport's controlling body, the Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA), in 1997 the ANDRA enhanced the prestige of the Winternationals by upgrading the event to the season decider for all Australian Drag Racing Championships.

This was my first visit to Willowbank Raceway and I was very impressed with the Organisation, Safety and the friendliness of the Teams in the Paddock, it was also my first time photographing Drag Racing!

THE VENUE: Willowbank Raceway is a permanent Drag Racing facility located west of Brisbane, near the city heart of Ipswich.
