About FX

Factory Xtreme is a Sport Compact Drag Racing category open to post-2000 full chassis drag vehicles with a maximum wheelbase of 115 inches powered by a 4-cyl, 6-cyl, two-rotor or three-rotor engine. This category represents the ultimate in drag racing technology and development both in terms of horsepower and its application, and with several national and world record holders on board and guaranteed fields of committed racers, it is going to be the category to watch in 2012.

The four-round Factory Xtreme series will begin at the Sydney Jamboree at Sydney Dragway on March 31st 2012 with round two forming part of the Nitro Champs to be held on the 4th-6th of May 2012. From there the series heads north to Willowbank Raceway for round three that will take place at the 2012 Winternationals on June 8th-11th before concluding at the Brisbane Jamboree for the final on the weekend of September 22nd and 23rd.

The racing will be run in a Chicago Shootout format with every racer having the opportunity to lay down six passes over the course of the event with the best two performers facing off in a final. While six-cylinder and three-rotor vehicles have traditionally been the dominant force, parity concerns have been addressed so that now the smaller but no less exciting four-cylinder and two-rotor cars join the heads-up action with weight breaks and equipment concessions made to even things up. (See below for rules).

There are already fourteen teams committed to race at the Factory Xtreme rounds with more expected throughout the year. All current and future full-chassis sport compact racing vehicles are invited to join in on what is sure to be the best display of drag racing technology and development in the sport’s history.

Hang onto your seat for the most exciting category to hit Australian Drag Racing in decades.
