Champion drag racer Maurice Fabietti enters this week’s opening round of the 2011/12 ANDRA Pro Series, the Fuchs Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway, having renewed his agreement with Holden Trade Club.
The latest contract sees Fabietti extend his deal with GM Holden into a sixth year, the new season the third his Holden Monaro Top Doorslammer has run under the Holden Trade Club banner.
“Our relationship with Maurice Fabietti has been successful from the outset, so we are delighted to continue our agreement with the Holden Trade Club Top Doorslammer team into a sixth year,” GM Holden Aftersales Marketing Manager David Metzke said.
“Maurice is one of the ANDRA Pro Series’ finest and most experienced drivers and we are excited about the opportunities, both on and off the race track, that he and his team make available to Holden Trade Club.”
